Seattle noise makers Into The Storm have returned with their latest effort, “Where the Merfalo Roam”. The album which will be released on November 11th via Alive and Breathing Records, is a complex album containing ten compositions that have been painstakingly pieced together riff by riff. Fans of Baroness, Mastodon and Pelican should appreciate this album since it captures the essence of those bands at times, but also contains its own unique flavour. For example, the first half of the song “Maturin” contains a brass section and then shifts to noisy blasts of heavy for the remainder of the song. There’s even some honky-tonk, chicken pickin’ to be found in “Truck Van Trailer” hidden near the end of the sludge infused chaotic riffing. In conclusion, Into the Storm have created their most progressive and impressive work to date since their inception in 2010.
Today at The Sludgelord we can offer you a taste of this monstrous record in the form of new video for the track “Maths”, which is undoubtedly one of the album highlights . My calculations are that this track is a stonewall face melter. “Where the Merfalo Roam” can be preordered here
