On the Radar: Mühr

Hell fucking yes. Usually the protocol for this kind of thing is to put the words up top and the audio below, but fuck that, you need to hear Mühr now. Here’s “Shepherd” and “Blood” from their Bandcamp page:

Fucking HUGE tones. Mühr, a trio who I first heard about on the forum here, take the gargantuan, giant-headed riffage of Dutch countrymen Toner Low and slow it down to spread across the two tracks on their demo, leaning just on the doom side of stoner/doom and maybe giving a tonal nod to landmark Italian trio Ufomammut with some of the subtle background noise underlying. However you look at them though, these two songs are massive, and most definitely worth investigating.

Shepherd/Blood, which between the two tracks is over 24 minutes long, is available for a name-your-price download or 10 Euro physical vinyl purchase here. The crushing psychedelia and lumbering riffs need to be heard if you’re a fan of either of the above mentioned bands, or, you know, have a skull you don’t mind getting caved in by low end. This is heavy shit, folks. Definitely eager to see where Mühr go next. It’ll be hard to miss for the giant fucking footprint they leave behind.
