One of the most exciting records to be released in 2021 is "Preserved In Time" by German doom-mongers WHEEL. This is a perfect slice of epic doom metal in the style of masters such as CANDLEMASS and SOLITUDE AETURNUS...crushingly heavy yet beautifully melodic. Such an effort deserves further investigation. I made contact with longtime drummer CARSTEN JERCKE to find out more about WHEEL's path to doom and the ideas behind "Preserved In Time". Anyone who admires this genre of metal needs to check out both the album and the interview, the latter of which you can find HERE!

This week brings an extra-sized edition of the Torture Chamber, full of underground goodness and surprises...
