Have the last few days got you blue? Do you find your emotions operating on a scale ranging from incredible anger to crying-into-your-whiskey sadness? Truth be told, YOU ARE NOT ALONE. It's safe to say anyone with a brain likens the same frought conclusions as you, but with so much BLAH going around, what musical offering could possibly soothe our societal pain? A big dose of Gidrah just may be in order.
Sure, metal may not change the current political climate, but Gidrah's crusty sludge is just as heavy as our hearts, serving as a close sonic alignment to our collective feelings. The most recent winners of our Artist of the Month poll dropped their demo no more than two years ago but the intensity of their at times bluesy riffs, seasoned with hints of breathy punk rawness and an overall atmospheric weightiness that encompasses the glum mysteriousness of existence, make for the best form of stoner doom metal to let your mind escape to.
From their Eh, Fuck It Dude, Let's Go Destroy Cities (a message that is even more relevent now) demo to their most recent split release with doomy duo Urchin, we need more Gidrah and we need them now.
