Sun Eater – Sun Eater


Sun Eater – Sun Eater
Self released – 2012
Rock, Stoner, Psychedelic, Atmospheric
Rated: ***


After the leaves had turned dark red in the autumn of 2011, two guys started jamming in a basement somewhere in Tacoma, Washington, USA. Soon they picked up another stray cat that could hit the skins and together they formed a band whose names and deeds would be retold throughout history; and they called themselves Sun Eater. The trio seems to live inside long and elongated almost fragile compositions that thrive on a hypnotic and steady rhythm and a howling guitar. They take inspirational queues from Colour Haze, Sleep, Earthless and to a lesser extent the guitar freak out bands from the seventies. And apart from a sneaky sudden scream resonating from deep in some dark and dismal hole there is not a note or tone too many. Most importantly they dare to keep it that ‘simple’ and with that honesty make the three songs on their self titled debut EP and profound experience…
