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.
