Tårn delivers on so many fronts: it’s groovy, it’s heavy, and it’s catchy, a winning combo. Though Ruff Majik has never been as heavy as to be labeled a doom metal act, with each album they grow darker and more brooding and their sound here is a far cry from the stoner rock sounds heard on their debut, The Bear.
In episode twenty-seven, we vacate the halls of bone and flesh to journey to the quirky, synth-laden krautrock mountain of worms on Return to Worm Mountain’s eponymous LP. We get doused in the effervescent ambient energy of FOUDRE!’s Kami 神 and we get smoked out by the delectably hefty stoner doom crunch of Azimuth from Summoned by Giants.
In episode forty-three, Duncan Park (Listeriosis, Return to Worm Mountain) delves into each of his projects and discusses what he has learned from them. He speaks about how he came into contact with extreme metal, his love for drone, and how his compositional approach has evolved as he works with more musicians.
