Self-titled debut EP by PHOTON offers a Pandora’s box sampling of heavy metal. Harkening back to the days of psychedelic black light posters and early days of Black Sabbath.

Quarry, with is grinding guitar and almost bluesy growl illustrates my point.

Interstellar, and Algorithms feature bone rattling bass reminiscent of Primus, and Skeleton’s machine gun fire drum riffs will knock you out.

Gamma Burst From a Dying Star is a 13+ minute track of astronomical musicality in its otherworldly riffs and solos.

This is an album you take your time with. Get comfortable with your favorite libation…or skip it to be honest, these tracks will bend your brain and blow your mind all on their own. Settle in, crank it up, and enjoy the ride. Noelle Ellis, Gigging NI
