The crackling amps of ultra-heavy natural doom metal are working overtime in 2017, and host Ian Christe brings a mid-year roundup of new offerings by ancient druids the Obsessed and Paradise Lost; rising supernovas Pallbearer and Wretch; plus a massive display of current doom approaches by Telekinetic Yeti, Shroud Eater, Hymn, Dead Witches, Venomous Maximus, and others.
