From the ashes of 7th RAIL CREW, INDESIT and HEADSHOT, comes one of the newer additions to your "must listen" list, the Boston-area band HALOBURN. If you dig bands like Stone Sour,Tool,Nothingface and Alice in Chains then these guys should be right up your alley. File Under: Right in your grill, rhythmically solid, metal that both you AND yo' woman can appreciate.
