Amid Devonia's Alps - Out Now

The new Urthona CD is here, and it's humungous. An hour of garage-metal, rural-psychedelia spread over three massive, long tracks. Taking over where I Refute It Thus' Sun and Moon So Heavy left off, it's super-intense Slab Rock all the way and comes in a tri-fold eco-sleeve with inserts, field recordings in Devon and Wiltshire, photos by Julian Cope. Hell yeah, it's totally up-for-it free-noise ampage, tho' careful aural scrutiny may reward the listener with the discovery of distant melodious undertows. Available from and other places in due course. I'll add a sound file soon.
