Maeth, a band that holds the distinction of being one of only two bands I’ve traveled to California to see live, is back with a brand new record. Stream “Verne”, your first taste of Shrouded Mountain rightchyea.

Maeth is a band to behold. This Minnesota post-everything crew captivates and destroys unsuspecting fools all across the country with their intense blend of prog and polyrhythm. Audiences in the Northern (read: shittier) part of the United States will get a chance to be blown away in person when the band launches a brief tour starting TONIGHT.

In celebration of Shrouded Mountain, the band’s upcoming full-length, we’re pleased to premiere this track. “Verne” opens up with Sam, the band’s guitarist and flautist, flauting away on his lonesome. A hypnotic guitar line joins and soon the rhythm section lurches into an unsettling groove. Thunderous vox and deft fretplay interlock as the band takes you on a mind safari. Get trippy, y’all.

Shrouded Mountain is out October 28th. Pre-order it on a slick piece of wax from Minnesconsin records. Like Maeth on Facebook, then go see Maeth on tour at a venue near your area.

  • Maeth is wild! Thanks for this premiere, Joe. This sounds way more psychedelic.

    • Stockhausen

      Yeah it does. This song rules hard.

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            STILL WORKING MY DUDE! NO HEADPHONES (SAD FACE)

          • Stockhausen

            WELL SHOOT I WILL REMIND YOU LATER

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            THANKS!

          • Stockhausen

            JEFE. EVENING IS UPON US. NOW YOU MUST LISTEN.

            TAKE A GANDER AT THE TOP OF THE COMMENTS

  • Stockhausen

    A poem for Maeth:

    Maeth is very good
    And you really should
    Like them

  • Joaquin Stick

    I cannot buy this album yet, which makes me a sad panda, but I’ll settle for Oceans Into Ashes for the low low price of whatever I currently have in my Paypal. HH’s supporter comment made me chuckle.

    • The_Claudia

      When the album comes out officially late next month, it’ll also be pay-what-you-want for a digital copy! -Jay, Maeth’s non-HH drummer

  • Elegant Gazing Globe

    I’m not smart enough for this music

    • HessianHunter

      :'(

  • Jason Kolkey

    Omigod, omigod! Maeth IN MY NEIGHBORHOOD TOMORROW! I’m going to get the drummer to sign my chest!

    • HessianHunter

      Signature’s free, $5 if you want a picture with the talent. The talent is me. I am the talent.

  • Man this sounds really cool, I wish we knew some of the band members, I bet they’d be cool.

  • Hey for real though this post-flute metal is working for me. I’m a sucker for a good spacey-sounding woodwind next to more traditional rock instruments (see also: Xipe Totec)

    • HessianHunter

      Thank you for not saying Jethro Tull

      • Pffft, who am I, JJD?

        • Janitor Jim Duggan

          I can’t help but laugh at this.

  • HessianHunter

    HEY EVERYONE LOOKIT THIS THING I DID, MY BANDMATES ARE THE MOST TALENTED PEOPLE I KNOW AND IT MAKES ME CRY

    Also if it’s not clear from the Bandcamp page, if you buy the vinyl you get an immediate download of the full album. Once it’s officially released on Oct. 28th, it’ll be a pay-what-you-want download just like the rest of our releases.

  • Eliza

    This is really interesting in a very enjoyable way. Good job Maeth.

  • Ayreonaut

    Ew NYC….. Ewwww PA…… Not worth going to for me

    • Janitor Jim Duggan

      It’s a shame I have to miss it but I have work.

      • Ayreonaut

        me too… and in all reality i would much rather drive to PA instead of the city. i absolutely hate that place, and ive only been once.

  • Señor Jefe El Rosa

    Hmm, Jethro Tull

  • Hubert

    This music is music that is good.

  • Tampaxon, Flusher Of Gods

    Loving this. The flutes and worldly music widdlies made think that a Juno Reactor song was about to break out, though. Sounds like a flutey Neurosis.

  • Janitor Jim Duggan

    If I didn’t work I’d see Maeth on the 27th. I’m a busy man though so it’s not possible for me to make it.

    • Tampaxon, Flusher Of Gods

      I’d go see them if they ever played anywhere near here (or any decent band for that matter). Le sigh………..

    • more beer

      But Brooklyn isn’t in your area.

  • Guacamole Jim

    Damn!! That is some rad stuff. Very excited for the upcoming album! Also, I will be in Chicago tomorrow, and will maybe see if my plans could work out so that I could take in the Maeth show?

    • HessianHunter

      Dude, please do!

  • Mon*Star

    Gooski’s is an institution. An awesome neighborhood dive bar, a welcome watering hole to metalheads… and a shitty venue. That being said, I will do my damndest to get there a show my support.

    • HessianHunter

      Sounds like heaven

  • Waynecro

    This awesome jam confirms that I need more flute in my life.

  • Old Man Doom

    Goddamn, this is great. That artwork has got me projecting into the astral realms too.

  • Señor Jefe El Rosa

    I can dig this! A heck ton! I really enjoy the use of flute in the jammage, its practically not a flute anymore. If that makes any sense.

    • Stockhausen

      FOUND IT

      • Señor Jefe El Rosa

        GOOD WORK

    • HessianHunter

      I’m glad you remembered to check it out!

      • Señor Jefe El Rosa

        Good work man!

  • Count_Breznak

    Not sure if flute or tinnitus.
