Electric Age Keep the Southern Metal Alive

"Hailing from Louisiana, Electric Age, since forming in 2013, have taken the craft of their sludge and southern metal contemporaries , and incorporated the dynamics of more traditional metal, along with folk , doom and straight forward rock, to create the epic tale of their debut album 'Sleep of the Silent King'”.

Finding this album right before Christmas is the best gift I could give myself. 'Sleep of the Silent King' sounds like an album from a band that has been around for years, an anticipated release from a long favourite artist and yet, as of one hour ago I had never heard of them. Channeling a softer side of Phil Anselmo and combining elements from traditional and classic heavy metal, these guys have made a brilliant album that is familiar and distinctly unique at the same time. Unfortunately it won't see a release until the new year but in the mean time its available for streaming in its entirety so be sure to check it out.
