The heaviest D.I.Y. trio from Canada, Dopethrone, was born in 2008 in Hochelaga, Montrealís trashiest Ghetto. They encompass the bleakness of black metal, the steadfastness of New Orleans-style sludge, and a heavier-than-thou doom mentality. The riffs are thick, punishing, suffocating and destructive. The Demonic vocals are harsh, visceral and animal-like. And the mood is heavy and oppressive.
