[STREAM] Halmos – “Datura”

Halmos’ debut EP is 5 tracks of blunt, thick sludge metal delivered with a stoner rock ethos.  The songs are centered around dense riffs generously stretched across mostly 5+ minute running times, with the tempos rarely rising above a crawl.  It’s stoner metal pared down to its most essential elements.  Lean, bruising opener “Datura” is the best of the lot.  Stream it below, and buy the whole thing for $5 over at Halmos’ Bandcamp.

The band is celebrating the release with a headlining show at The Masquerade tonight.  Order of the Owl, Demonaut, and Wolves and Jackals round out a solid as hell local metal lineup.  Admission is free, and the band will be selling a limited edition of 20 signed and numbered physical editions of the EP.
