Earthship - Withered

Former The Ocean drummer Jan Oberg and his neat little band from Berlin, Germany, Earthship, have exploded onto the sludge/stoner landscape with their third release, Withered - a short but substantial 30-minute piece of music that's broken down to 10 archaic and bludgeoning riff clinics. The tunes are catchy, likable, and most of all, heavy.

Earthship

Earthship surge ahead like a nuclear-powered icebreaker through the Barents Sea, laden with mighty riffs, tons of groove, and home-brewed whiskey.

Earthship was launched by former The Ocean drummer Jan Oberg in 2010, who was joined by his colleagues Dennis Boettcher (drums) and Bastian Gutschke (bass) after a long drinking night in Berlin. The Ocean main-man Robin Staps joined the band as a secondary guitarist shortly afterwards. "I have not been involved in the songwriting at all though, it is entirely Jan's creative work", comments Staps.

Progventure Part 9: Green Carnation - Another Night Under The Dam, Åseral, Norway, 31.07.2014

It seems that my Progventure prog searching trips are not only a convenient excuse to travel new places, or more often the only way of seeing bands I like I wouldn't otherwise get to see, but in some cases they are turning out to be events of a fairly unique kind. Another Night Under the Dam - the Green Carnation reunion show at the Åseral dam number 3 in Norway was unique in more ways than one. And it most definitely was special.

Warhound - Next Level

Metal and hip hop? Being a fan of both, I can honestly say it's usually a remedy for embarrassing disaster, or something to listen to with that overt irony (see: Limp Bizkit). Props to Warhound for beating down the skeptics.

Earth - Primitive And Deadly

Earth require little introduction for fans of drone. Their debut album has become so legendary in the scene that even Stephen O'Malley (a legend in his own right) was inspired to start a project named after one of its tracks. However, the band demonstrated soon after that they were never content to sit in this one style, and have been consistently reinventing themselves ever since. 2014's Primitive And Deadly only continues this trend, further proving that Earth aren't running out of the tricks in their hat anytime soon.
