German sludge/doom band EREMIT’s album is streaming in full prior to the release

Most fans of doom/sludge metal would agree that there is something phenomenal about listening to monolithic, complex pieces of music in their entirety. That’s why we were super happy to announce that Eremit‘s ‘Desert of Ghouls’ EP  is now streaming online in it’s entirety, and can be checked out AT THIS LINK. We especially recommend this EP for metal fans who like their doom to be laced with terrific riffage and an eternal atmosphere of its own.

German sludge/doom metal band Eremit released a groundbreaking debut in ‘Carrier of Weight’ which was widely regarded as some of the heaviest sludge/doom music recorded and despite the length of the songs, riveted listeners from all over. Retaining the same mind-numbingly heavy sound, Eremit trudge forward with brand new material that’s even tighter and catchier than before. The two monolithic songs are some of the best in the style and offer brilliant variations without disrupting the inexorable momentum. The sound is crisper without losing its organic roots and the music even showcases influences of blackened sludge, a clear sign of the band’s inevitable progression. This is clearly the band’s finest hour and it heralds the slew of sludge/doom releases lined up on the label from bands like Jupiterian71TonManand Subterraenthis year.
