Austin, TX based Never have released their debut self titled album.
The tracks are based around heavy and melodic guitars riffs, with touches of metal, grunge and stoner influences that can be heard throughout the 7 songs. With a dark and brooding vocal swirling over the heavy rhythms, it adds to an atmospheric sound this band have managed to create.
