Stream Cormorant’s incredible Dwellings right now at NPR Music. NPR calls it”far and away, the best metal record of 2011: an emotionally and musically complex album which wrestles with our desperate and sometimes violent attempts to secure a place in history.”
“We’re trying to do Rothko metal or something.”
Hear “Junta” by the multi-hyphenate metal band Cormorant at NPR Music, a song inspired by NPR’s coverage of the 2009 Guinea crisis.
Stream Heritage at NPR Music, the tenth album from Opeth. Quoth NPR, it’s “an unending swirl of guitars and swinging, aerobic percussion.” Also, bye-bye death growls.
