Just this past week we saw how important the ACLU still is. One of the first to confront the so called "Muslim ban" enacted by the indifferent pen of Donald Trump, it began the long and arduous legal battle against this administration. With not only the presidency but also Congress and Senate painted in the most extreme and reckless red imaginable, their work will grow seven-fold; now they must take on the legislative branch instead. Thus, and despite of the already remarkable success their fundraising has seen in the past week, Bandcamp's contribution to the ACLU is admirable. We're here to do our share; below you'll find a list of artists that are worthy of your support on this Friday.
Resurrecting Id is the brainchild of Chris Herald, a talented sax player/composer and fellow metal nerd. The premise of Resurrecting Id appears to be answering the question of, "Hey, what would happen if there was progressive, djenty metal with sax playing the usual guitar lead and guitar playing support?" He answered that question in the form a self-titled 5-song EP last year, and I gotta say, it's definitely worth the time of anyone who read my article last week, as well as any fans of interesting, technically-demanding jazzy prog metal.
