Mastodon's ninth full-length album, 'Hushed And Grim' closes a four-year gap. It is the heavy rock quartet’s first double album and first new record since 2017’s Emperor of Sand, which netted the Atlanta band a GRAMMY® Award in the category of “Best Metal Performance”.
As their most ambitious body of work to date, it consists of 15 tracks, surveying sonic landscapes of rock, psychedelia, punk, metal, alternative, and prog threaded together by the innately expressive musical interplay of these four virtuosic musicians.
For as much as HUSHED AND GRIM is steeped in one of the darkest periods of the band’s career as each member experiencing personal grief, its light shines through in a fully realized manifestation everything Mastodon is right now.

Wretch is the first full-length album by legendary stoner-rockers Kyuss, released in 1991.
It's a solid start rich with Black Sabbath worshiping heavy riffs and that instantly recognizable voice of John Garcia.
It sounds like a young band getting their feet wet and jamming out. The tracks "Black Widow" and "Deadly Kiss" are taken from the band's debut EP, Sons of Kyuss (1990), recorded with original bassist Chris Cockrell, while the rest of the album was recorded with his replacement Nick Oliveri.
The Sons of Kyuss songs "Love Has Passed Me By", "Katzenjammer", and "Isolation Desolation" were re-recorded for Wretch, the latter's title shortened to "Isolation".
MASTODON exploded onto the scene in 2002 with their debut LP Remission a record that would immediately establish them as one of the most important bands in the history of heavy music. Combining an unparalleled level of musicianship together with songwriting sophistication that simply did not exist amongst their peers, were it to be initially released today Remission would still be nothing short of mindblowing.

Meticulously remastered for vinyl and with packaging to match the original CD release (a stunning triple-gatefold sleeve, with printed inserts to house the vinyl).

The Dhaze are a power trio,based in Naples, founded in 2017 by Simone Pennucci (vocals/guitar), Vincenzo La Tegola (bass/vocals) and Lorenzo Manna (drums).
The band plays a personal variety of psychedelic rock, firstly influenced by 70’s music, stoner rock, doom metal and pure lysergic sounds, but also inspired by other musical contexts such as grunge or alternative rock. Among the band influences we find Colour haze, All Them Witches, Kyuss, Tea Party, Tool, Pink Floyd, Black Sabbath, Dead Meadow and many others.
Deaf Dumb Blind is the The Dhaze’s debut album. Lyrics are inspired by the dark side of human nature, passing towards the psychological abyss of perceptions, of neurosis and of the deepest fears that live inside each one of us.
