Featured Lists: Terence Hannum & Steven Hess of Locrian Pick their Favorite Releases of 2015

Terence Hannum and Steven Hess are two-thirds of the Chicago-based avant/experimental metal group, Locrian. They released one of my favorite albums of 2015, entitled Infinite Dissolution. The two of them also split time between other artistic projects. Hannum is also a visual artist (and a great one at that), he has also released some solo material and plays in Holy Circle as well. Hess splits his times between other bands, playing drums for RLYRCleared, and Haptic. The two of them were kind enough to contribute their favorite releases of 2015. You can check out the personal websites for Hannum (here) and Hess (here).
