ALL CRASH, NO BURN: Minsk's "The Crash and the Draw" Album Stream

It's hard to think of any instance in which post-metal could be considered uplifting. Minsk certainly aren't going to change that. This Illinois-based act brings a widescreen sensibility to their Neurosis, storming through 76 minutes of sludge and misery. With the ever-dependable Sanford Parker guiding the storm, their latest descent into the void is a suffocating one. Hear it for yourself in its entirety below.
