The Progressive Space Rock/Doom Metal hybrid Earth Altar and Heavy Stoner/Doom power trio Sun Below unleash a riff-Heavy journey across time and the cosmos on their upcoming split album “Inter Terra Solis.” Having sculpted an epic ride of distorted guitar, vocals and trippy lyrics, the bands explore the labyrinth of the human psyche and the unpredictability of the universe within a ponderous palette of crushing doom and stoner-tinged mystery. The “Inter Terra Solis” is due out on September 15th via Black Throne Productions.
First on the split, Earth Altar is the interplay between the complex, diverse drum style of Jon MacIsaac and the unique, ethereal bass guitar playing of Spencer Trout. Earth Altar seeks to leave these mundane bonds and ascend through the heavy and the other-worldly. Mixing Stoner Rock, Doom Metal, Space Rock, and Psych Rock with Progressive song structures, cosmic musings, and world-wide influences; Earth Altar sounds uniquely themselves.
Closing out the album with three immense tracks, Sun Below is a Heavy Stoner/Doom power trio playing a signature brand of self-described “Sativa Rock”: a combination of Fuzz, volume, and Heavy grooves. Sun Below seek to spread their infectious, rollicking sound to the masses and their mission remains to create riff Heavy Rock fused with the sonic weight of crushing Doom. The current lineup of Jason Craig (guitars/vocals), Liam “Acid Goblin” Gray (bass) and Will Adams (drums) blend these elements into long burning jams that worship at the altar of tone, riffs, and smoke.
As above, so below, the duality of the underworld and the cosmos, the microcosm and the macrocosm is thoroughly traversed through the lyrical themes and tones of each band. While Earth Altar and Sun Below tackle a different aspect of our reality and nature, each is intimately tied with the other.
