Stomb

Excellent instrumental progressive d'jent from France
Comments:
Stomb is one of those gems that you have to do some deep Internet digging to find out about. Although they do have a Facebook and a Bandcamp page, they are not well known...yet. The Grey is one of the best instrumental albums I have ever heard. Clocking in at almost 70 minutes, you'd think this would get boring rather quick. However, each track brings an individual onslaught that keeps things interesting. Mixing heavy d'jent riffs with a progressive flavor, The Grey will take you on a journey that will have you banging your head. If I would have heard of these guys in 2016, this would have been close to the top of my Album of the Year list.
Recommended for fans of:
Meshuggah, Periphery, Vildhjarta, & Tesseract
