CRUSHING PSYCHEDELIC DOOM ORDAINED AT THE HALLOWED ALTARS OF ELECTRIC WIZARD & SLEEP… ISOLATIONIST, CINEMATIC AND DEVASTATING. INTRODUCING, GREEN DRUID.
PSYCHEDELIC DOOM MASTERS ‘GREEN DRUID’ UNLEASH CINEMATIC AND BROODING SINGLE ‘THE FOREST DARK’ AND ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM ‘AT THE MAW OF RUIN’, OUT DECEMBER 4TH VIA EARACHE RECORDS
From the label that brought you doom pioneers Sleep, welcome to the stage Green Druid. Brooding, atmospheric, isolationist. With weighty riffs summoning the Lovecraftian horrors of the cosmos, Green Druid’s music entrances listeners with tales of the Old Blood and of dismal worlds too soon forgotten.
Hailing from the land of Denver, Colorado – the first US city to legalise marijuana – Green Druid worships at the feet of the monolithic amplifier and performs holy communion with the onslaught of murky tones that emanate from its maw, releasing their critically acclaimed debut album ‘Ashen Blood’ in 2018.
Two cycles of the sun later, Green Druid emerge once more with profound new sounds and a heavy message: “In order to cleanse the rot from our planet, we as a species need to stop thinking so inward and have a ‘death of self’.” The Forest Dark is the first offering from the album and at an impressive 11 minutes long, provides a devastatingly heavy and monolithic soundtrack to current world affairs.
HEAVY BLOG IS HEAVY premiered the video and describe the track as “It’s like a long-dead beast raising its head from out of a tar pit and it showcases just how unique Green Druid are and why we love them.” In summary, now is not the time for complacency. It’s the time for action, and as the band knows all too well, make enough noise and people will listen.
The band have now revealed details of their new album ‘At the Maw of Ruin’, to be released on 4th December via Earache Records.
