Magnetic Eye Records presents a blistering live document of flagship Magnetic Eye Records band ELEPHANT TREE tearing it up onstage at the "Day of Doom" label showcase at Brooklyn's Saint Vitus Bar.
This once-in-a-lifetime gathering was held in November 2019 to celebrate MER’s first decade. It featured nine roster acts performing back-to-back, with the four headline sets captured live by Chris Johnson (DEAFHEAVEN, SUMMONER) to commemorate the event as a set of exclusive live albums.
Emerging from England in 2015, ELEPHANT TREE were handpicked by MER from an early demo submission thanks to their warm, syrupy fuzz and soaring vocal harmonies. This infectious blend made their debut "Theia" and 2016 self-titled album two of the most popular records in the label’s catalog. With their third full-length, "Habits" (2020), the band that had previously been firmly located in a musical triangle between stoner, sludge, and doom maturely expanded their stylistic range to include post-metal groove and even acoustic folk among other elements, which resulted in what German Visions magazine praised as a "sophisticated album" with "unconventional songwriting".
"Day of Doom Live" showcases ELEPHANT TREE offering what Metal Injection describes as "gloomy atmosphere with head-bobbing grooves" in a live setting, following more than 5 years delivering their heavy yet melodic sound to audiences across the UK, Europe and the USA.
