Review: Samothrace – Life’s Trade 
Unbridled doom metal with a slew of icy blues tendencies is what Lawrence, KS quartet Samothrace serves up on their four-track, 48-minute offering LIFE’S TRADE. Echoing their Western states sentiments by adding American Indian tribal rhythms into the intricate musical maze to create a swirling effect that morphs Pink Floyd and Isis (“Awkward Hearts”), this band uses everything at their dispose to create sonic walls of slow-churned savagery. Showcasing a tremendous twin guitar tandem whose sludgy call and response shines throughout the disc, this crushing release embodies the spirit of desolation at its most absolute. www.20buckspin.com -Mike SOS
