For the first Pit Story of November and one of the last of the year, we've got a truly epic tale of the best of metal culture: getting stoned out of your mind and hitting up a proper festival.
This week guitarist Nate Jones from Florida stoner / sludge metal outfit Junior Bruce shares a tale of fiery terror from Cromfest 2010. Nate recalls the events like this:
February 2010, with very loose directions and gear loaded up, we embarked on a journey to an isolated area just outside of Cassadaga, FL to play a party called Cromfest. $5 all you can drink, bonfires, and metal celebrating fucking CROM? Seriously I can't make this shit up!
Darkness falling and people starting to show up, it was time to eat some shrooms! Moments later the bonfire was blazing and things were warming up fast. These guys even had the forethought to have shit laying around to throw on to the fire all night long - old sofas and other random junk furniture and flammable garbage. The people at the party were fucking nuts - there was a guy walking around with a python, people with legit sharp ass dangerous as fuck battle axes, fuck - even the guy carving the smoked pig was using a jacked up sword to cut the meat (you know the kind that you'd find at a flea market or outlet mall for "decorative purposes only").
There was another guy that fashioned a mace out of a steel chain and bowling ball, another guy had a giant hammer to smash things with, and someone built a flame thrower out of a propane tank and was torching the pigs head mounted on a steak. This shit was intense! Did I mention they smoked a pig? People were smashing shit, throwing shit on the fire, and getting fucked up. It was Ocala / Volusia county at its finest! Pure testosterone filled redneck destruction - all in the name of CROM!More...
Florida doom/stoner metal band is streaming another new track today: check out the freshly unleashed "Thirteen Zeros" below.
Sludge/doom band Junior Bruce has revealed new track "Lion's Teeth" today. The track is taken from forthcoming album "Endless Descent," which will be released via A389 Recordings on October 31st. The band commented:
"Ever mix cocaine, whiskey, blood and meat in a blender? Me either but I imagine it would taste like Lion's Teeth sounds. Right from the gate you're repeatedly pummeled by frenzied up-tempo riffs and titanic preachings, but when your face can barely take it anymore.....relief comes when you're suddenly floating in a churning sea of severed limbs, and you love it."

Stoner sludge metal band Junior Bruce is pleased to announce the release of new album "Endless Descent" via A389 Recordings on October 31st, 2016.
This album, the band's first full-length since 2012 debut "The Headless King," takes the sound on that record to a whole new level. The band recently revealed an animated video for the track "Lapis Philosophorum" - check it out below.
Vocalist Scott Angelacos commented that the album's concept is based on "one persons struggle to rescue their one love from the depths of the abyss. In their attempts to open a gateway to the underworld they unwittingly set free upon the earth legions of demons and beasts that ultimately consumes not only their soul, but all of humanity."

The long awaited Doommantia Vol. 2 anthology has been released. This compilation was put together to raise money to benefit Ed Barnard, founder of Doommantia.com. After suffering with heart problems for years, Ed was hit with astronomical hospital bills which left him homeless. Due to the lack of decent healthcare in the US, Ed has now returned to his homeland of Australia to receive the care he deserves.
To help him with living expenses, 84 bands and artists from all over the world have come together once again to ease the burden left upon Ed. Just a nominal sum (with an option to pay more) gets you over 9 hours of some of the best doom, stoner, sludge, psychedelic, and drone jams out there. Stream the whole compilation and get the download details over at bandcamp. More...
