Heavy is good. Heavy done right is even better. Now throw in really stellar influences all while making it your own sound. Well, that, my friends, is a great place to be when releasing an album. Thankfully this very bit of advice is what Cleveland’s own Kriadiaz has done with their self-titled debut. Since 2010, Dave Felton from Mushroomhead and these metal slingers have been bringing the mud-hole stomping, and does this debut ever pack some punch! Taking much love from the masters Pantera, Crowbar, Down, with hints of Lamb Of God, and a Black Sabbath type of ominousness, Kriadiaz have crafted a very heavy solid 90’s era heavy metal album that kicks teeth down throats with no chance of apology!
