David Cross did a piece that kinda sums it up for me:
Yes, it actually is on pitchfork.
A great site for info is aquarius records': http://www.aquariusrecords.org/ . Nice folks, you can hear sound samples and buy the stuff from them too. The have a stake in not steering you wrong--and they aren't trying to get themselves a job in rock journalism or with some label as a publicist (well,...). Sign up for their weekly new release list--it's not always on-spot with release dates, but the writing and info is great. AND...they do metal!
