Sprawling, epic sludge-rock rumblings from Arizona. NORTH bring a soulful doom to their upcoming album, ‘Light The Way’. A perfect balance and darkness and light, carefully crafted and will be greatly appreciated for fans of Baroness, Rosetta and Mouth Of The Architect amongst others. “A wall of crushing, psychedelia-tinged post-Neur-Isis mania.” – Decibel Magazine.
Crawling from the thresholds of Tucson, Arizona come atmospheric driven sludge trifecta NORTH. Consisting of vocalist/bassist Evan Leek, guitarist Matthew Mutterperl, and drummer Zack Hansen, the trio have spent the past ten years sprawling their penchant for destruction and reformation throughout every infiltratable venue in their reach. Appearing with acts ranging from Rosetta, Adai, Weedeater, This Will Destroy You, Caspian, Cough, He Whose Ox Is Gored, Alcest, Vattnet Viskar, Subrosa, Primitve Man and several more, NORTH have maintained a consistent presence while building an extensive underground following and dedicated fanbase.
Light The Way shows a path for the future. With clear heads, the strongest bond the band has ever had and appearing more focused than ever, the band’s first full length for Prosthetic Records is without a doubt their finest. The album has the dichotomy of each song standing entirely on its own while the record as a whole is an extremely cohesive unit. Light The Way was recorded by long-time producer, Dana Fehr and mastered by Colin Marston (Krallice, Gorguts). With North being an ever-evolving entity, for better or for worse, over the years, the stability and attentiveness they now exist leaves the future wide open with the best yet to come. Already being lauded by Alternative Press as the bands’ most accomplished work to date praising it’s “sprawling atmospheres and righteous guitar-worshipping riffery.” The path is lit.
