Maeth – Oceans Into Ashes

Maeth – Oceans Into Ashes
Self released – 2013
Rock, Sludge, Metal, Stoner, Prog, Psych, Post
Rated: *****

Last year the four Minnesota guys from Maeth surprised with an intense and extremely impressive EP called Horse Funeral. And now we are treated to their full-sized debut: Oceans Into Ashes. Which is probably another contender for the Stoner HiVe top 20 list of 2013. They’ve stayed in touch with that earthy, natural and mystical sound we heard on their first release but take it to an even higher level of mania. This is pure passion. This is how edgy people get when bad weather is about to hit the islands. A delicate and explosive balance between wild and cautious. For it is an awesome and astonishing adventure; a musical saga that wants to explore every nook and cranny of and island filled with creatures that experienced a different evolutionary route. The tales told by the guitarlines and blaring riffs, the brilliant drumwork that pounds out history and a bass that throbs and glows and functions as the very edge of this enigmatic atoll are simply incredible and highly emotive. This is what we call a maethsterpiece…
