Soom – Night On Meadow


Soom – Night On Meadow
Robust Fellow – 2014
Doom, Noise, Metal, Drone, Atmospheric
Rated: ***

Originally released two years ago the boys from Robust Fellow Productions thought it was about time to bring their home country band Soom back under everyone’s attention. Ukraine is their stomping ground and Kharkov their home town. And the three-piece bring forth some unholy noisy doom metal on Night On Meadow.

The effect of all ten tracks is cumulative. It is a sound you can get used to. But only if you want your brain scraped. It gets into your teeth as well as your ears. It vibrates in the knot of nerves behind the breastbone and seems to eat at the damp and delicate tissue behind your eyes. Most of all though, it gets into your head, telling you that everything you’ve ever been afraid of, is waiting, just behind the next curve of the trail or that pile of tumbled rock, waiting, to snake out of its place and get you…
