Mp3 of the week: Seemless

Up til now, Seemless are most often described in terms of the bands singer Jesse Leach and drummer Derek Kerswill used to be in (Killswitch Engage and Shadows Fall, respectively). Believe this: the group's forthcoming What We Have Become (Equal Vision, due September 5), recorded at Mass's Longview studios (Aerosmith, Stones) will change that. Kerswill sounds like an angrier Mayard Kennan, while the band peels the murk off bottom-of-the-bong boogie-metal riffs, locking down some of the most user-friendly stoner-rock since Corrosion of Conformity's Blind. Bridging the gap between underground metal and commercial hard rock has been an iffy proposition since Soundarden broke up, but if you're looking for a road map in 2006, well, here it be.
