Played at Graspop Metal Meeting 2017



United States


Three powerful women make up the nucleus of American sludge/doom combo, supplemented with a male rhythm section. We’ve heard them described as a mix of My Dying Bride and Neurosis and that’s not far off the mark: an unsettling wall of sound is offset by the ethereal and complementary voices of Rebecca Vernon, Sarah Pendleton and Kim Pack, the electric violins of the latter two adding an emotional charge to the music. Their most recent masterstroke, ‘For This We Fought the Battle of Ages’ picks up where ‘More Constant than the Gods’ (2013) left off. The new album is even more dramatic and melancholic than its predecessor and takes the creepy and melancholic atmosphere that typifies their work to a new level. (#GMM17)
