Colorado psychedelic stoner doom collective Green Druid will release the debut full-length "Ashen Blood" via Earache Records on March 16th. The band issued the first single for "Dead Tree," which you can trip to via the visuals clip above. Pre-order the album over here.
Brooding, atmospheric, and 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 - the first US city to legalize marijuana - Green Druid worships at the feet of the monolithic amplifier, and performs holy communion with the tremorous onslaught of murky tones that emanate from its maw.
"While our first EP and foray into the world of doom could be viewed as us learning the ins-and-outs of the genre, Ashen Blood is where we really started to hone in on our own voice," issues the band. "Taking influence from the dark fantasy landscapes of games like Dark Souls and Bloodborne, we strove to create a truly doomed psychedelic experience." Fans of Sleep, Electric Wizard, Sunn O))), Thou, Khemmis, The Sword, and Bongripper pay heed.
