If you know anything about Old Iron (aka Jesse Roberts, Jerad Shealey, and Trent McIntyre) then you know they create some intensely powerful music. Sure, it is a doom and sludge extravaganza but it contains some nicely enticing melodic nuances as well.
‘Lupus Metallorum’ is not afraid to explore and it goes carousing into revealing moments of psych and groove at times. Where the band’s February 2014 debut ‘Cordyceps‘ was more in touch with the drone-ier side of doom, the new record is a different story altogether.
Take the new ‘Lupus Metallorum’ album for a lumbering spin now via the Bandcamp embed below. The album was released today, August 18, 2017, and was recorded and mixed at Red Room Recording by Matt Bayles in Seattle, Washington. Mastered at AudioSiege by Brad Boatright in Portland, Oregon.
