Bassist Rick Duncan and drummer Darryl Swan have been making music together for almost nine years—first as members of the Troglodytes, and, since 2009, as the rage-driven Towers. That shared history is what makes the duo's upcoming album II (out February 11 on Eolian Empire) so brutal and intense. The sludgy sci-fi metal works beautifully, letting the low-end attack of their bass-and-drums sound crack open your skull so as to more easily inject Duncan's rasping vocals and warped noise. The combined effect recalls fellow heavy rock explorers like Melvins and Voivod, and could potentially do your head in, Scanners-style. ROBERT HAM
