White-hot metal for your red-hot summer

Metallurgy

Also of alt.country act Mount Moriah, Chapel Hill, N.C., mad scientist Jenks Miller carefully recombines Southern rock, psychedelic ambience, and black metal, proclaiming "It's alive!" over the corpus of a quirky but graceful monster. Three hours of demos, outtakes, live cuts, and other ephemera collected on three discs include everything from ersatz synth themes and dark folk rock to a 42-minute meditation on a single chord. Eccentric, eclectic, and brilliant. ****
