Aaron Turner teamed up with bassist Brian Cook of Russian Circles and drummer Nick Yacyshyn of Baptists for his post-Isis project, which, in June, released What One Becomes (Thrill Jockey). The album contains some of the sludgiest, most punishing doom-metal you'll hear this year. Carter's growls guide the album's five tunes, which all clock in around 10 minutes or longer and lead the listener through pummeling peaks and eerie valleys. (Don't miss it)
