Mares of Diomedes – Belfast sludge/doom metal
What you may need to know…
01. Brothers Shea and Jordan make up both halves of Belfast sludge/doom-metal duo Mares of Diomedes.
02. Fuzzed-out, apocalyptic doom is the order of the day, with the band’s debut extended-player emerging midsummer of last year.
03. Streaming above is the band’s new split 12″ release alongside Danish doomlords Dreich. Available for streaming, download and physical purchase from the band’s Bandcamp.
04. On the road next weekend: Thursday December 1st in Belfast’s Voodoo, Friday December 2nd as part of promoters Burning Metal’s launch at Fredz in Cork, and on Saturday 3rd at the Roisín Dubh in Galway.
Verdict: Good, thick guitar tones and suitably substantial riffs. That’s the one.
