  • Print

German doom/sludge metal band Eremit will release their debut album entitled Carrier Of Weight on 25th February via Transcending Obscurity Records. The band which will for sure appeal to those who like Bell Witch, Thou, Eyehategod, Mournful Congregation, Jupiterian and similar acts is taking things to another level with their uncompromising brutality and delving into long, epic songs without losing focus. Listen to the first of three songs, "Froth Is Beckoning", that is streaming in the player below.
Eremit give us one of the heaviest and most ambitious album the style has seen in recent times. Featuring stunning album artwork by Mariusz Lewandowski (Bell Witch), the band trudge though turbulent, winding structures without letting them affect the overall momentum. There are three epic songs, with the longest being over 33 minutes, where they flesh out every nuance and showcase rare depth while retaining unparalleled brutality. Being the band's debut, the emotions are all too raw and palpable, but perhaps that's what's needed to get the point across. This is undiluted, straight-from-the-heart, maxed out sludge/doom with moments of poignancy ensconced in the bludgeoning heaviness. Link
