Origins by Mount Soma (Doom Metal, 2016)
Keith (Lead Guitar)
“The three tracks are connected thematically and follow a narrative arc originally intended as part of a long player but slimmed down for this initial release. The overarching theme was the journey from universal consciousness to matter and creation, to enlightenment, purification, consciousness death and rebirth and ultimate reintegration into the universal mind. A full circle. It incorporates two heavy tracks bridged by an atmospheric acoustic led piece, containing elements of stoner, doom, sludge, psych and whatever else you might find in there.
‘Origins’ is essentially a live studio recording with ‘Nebula’ and ‘Lazarus’ recorded live in the studio and ‘Origin’ recorded at a later date in the engineer’s living room. A few additional bits such as synths/effects were added afterwards.”
“Origins” will be officially released on the 5th April 2016.
