This one goes out to all the peeps who wished the CURE were a bit heavier back in the day [and probably hated them - like I did] and or those who wish that MY BLOODY VALENTINE were still “fresh” blood — cira’ 1991.
Still trying to decipher the above logo? If so — it says Heinali and Matt Finney, who are a [self-described] drone metal/ambient/doom-gaze band with one member from the Ukraine and one from Alabama.These guys sent in some decent material quite some time ago, but it was their latest output [and persistent follow-ups] that inspired me to put hands on keyboard and words to blog. Much respect for the dedication.
Peep their “Plainsong” cover while reading…
btw I love where this takes me!
- They’ve released 4 albums and are working on their 5th. The album “Conjoined” is out now through Paradigms Recordings and their 4th album “Ain’t No Night” is coming out this spring as well.
- This duo seems to have a great work ethic and have most recently signed with R. Loren of Pyramids label — Handmade Birds for their 5th release.
- They constructed a 30 minute dark ambient soundtrack for a photo exhibit and it’s up now on their bandcamp site (under the pay what you want basis). Headphone time folks!
“Any money people donate will go towards paying for our album art from Black Uroborus. We’d appreciate any help and we hope you enjoy our music. Thank you!” ~Matt Finney
“I think it’s dark and it looks like rain,” you said
“And the wind is blowing like it’s the end of the world,” you said “And it’s so cold it’s like the cold if you were dead,” and then you smiled for a second.
“I think I’m old and I’m feeling the pain,” you said,
“And it’s all running out like it’s the end of the world,” you said “And it’s so cold it’s like the cold if you were dead,” and then you smiled for a second.
Sometimes you make me feel like I’m living at the edge of the world, “It’s just the way I smile,” you said
