Giving a look at that album cover should give you an idea of what kind of music is contained within the latest album from North. It just screams of psychedelic, sludgy, groove laden, post-metal. Well, that’s what I see 😉 In The Great Silence near hour-long running time you may be able to hear many similarities to bands like Isis, Ghost Brigade, The Ocean, Neurosis, and early-Baroness, and at the same time hear how these guys really carve a niche all their own. Tracks like “Inanimate Fathers” have such a thunderous groove to them it’s neigh impossible not to be sucked down into the sludgy mire and songs like “Origins” create this kind of murky beauty that add layers of heart and complexity to the record. Then there’s “Pulse” which will bludgeon you over the head with a musty hammer of fat grooves and devastating guitars and vocals.
Seriously, every track on this album is quality and each separates itself from its previous and former with a nice diversity, something very welcome in the sludgy, post-metal realm. If any of the bands I mentioned above tickle your fancy or you just happen to like sludge metal of the highest breed, do make sure to click on the play button below. And as always, if you dig it, tell your friends, and maybe buy a download of the record. Enjoy!!! Peace Love and Metal!!!!
