I would love to tell you we use some scientific rubix of scoring to find our "Band of the Week" each week, but the fact is as I scroll through the more than 500 pieces of music we get each week that would be impossible. The truth is... when I open something and it kicks my ass more then anyone else, they get the nod. The nod this week went to "Crystal Lake" for that very reason. I clicked on their promo, the young men in the photos turned into beasts when the music started, and before I knew it a couple hours of my time was invested in them. When metal hits you in the soul like that, you know it's good. Fuck science, who needs a matrix when you have bands like Crystal Lake. - Martell
