Loincloth biography
LOINCLOTH is a technical progressive metal band based in Richmond, Virginia formed in 2000 from former members of the bands CONFESSOR and BREADWINNER. The band is made up by drummer Steve SHELTON, bassist Cary ROWELLS, and guitarist Tannon PENLAND in the studio with the addition of guitarist Craig HILTON live.

The band debuted in 2003 with their debut EP ''Church Burntings b/w New Jersey''. The band was quiet for a long while after this, playing live while focusing on writing. In 2012, the band announced and released their first album, comedically titled ''Iron Balls of Steel''. The heavy, instrumental, and technical metal album is full of quirky titles such as ''Underwear Bomb'', ''Angel Bait'', and others. The band is recommended to fans of heavy, technical instrumental bands such as BLOTTED SCIENCE and AMOGH SYMPHONY.

Review by UMUR

— First review of this album —
3 stars "Iron Balls of Steel" is the debut full-length studio album by US technical/progressive metal act Loincloth. The album was released through Southern Lord Recordings in January 2012. Loincloth was formed as far back as 2000, and features among others members of Confessor and Breadwinner. The band released a couple of minor releases in 2003 before a longer hiatus, which was in large part due to the reformation of Confessor, which kept drummer Steve Shelton and bassist Cary Rowells busy for a number of years (and spawned the "Unraveled (2005)" album).

If you are familiar with the characteristic technical doom/thrash metal sound of Confessor, youll probably instantly recognise the drumming style of Steve Shelton. The man is simply a drummer extraordinaire, and his work is always a pleasure to listen to. The major difference here, among other things, is of course that the music on "Iron Balls of Steel" is fully instrumental. Its a very rythmic technical/progressive type of metal, with only few melodic traits. As a result the tracks are a bit hard to tell apart and overall it seems that technical playing is emphasised over atmosphere and hooks. A kind of intellectual "musicians" music. Theres no doubt the music is technically very impressive and occasionally the band are able to conjure up a dark and haunting atmosphere too that provides the music with a needed extra dimension, but in the end Im left sligthly dissatisfied with the lack of memorable moments.

If you enjoy instrumental technical/progressive metal with a mathcore edge "Iron Balls of Steel" should prove to be an interesting listen. If you crave any form of melody to soothe your ears, this is probably an album you can pass by. Id say a 3 - 3.5 star (65%) rating is warranted.

Thanks to aapatsos for the artist addition.
