Raise your doom claws to the sounds of “Follow The Light,” from Cape Fear misery-makers, SOURVEIN. The brash number comes by way of the band’s forthcoming split with fellow riff-wielders, Graves At Sea, set for release next month via Seventh Rule Recordings.
SOURVEIN has been brandishing their sonic odes of doom and distortion for two decades. In keeping with their signature design, “Follow The Light” is the sound of a slow-roasted apocalypse – a tar-thick, bottom-heavy hymn, wrapped in a subtle cosmic rock swagger and punctuated by the gruff and gristly vocal cadence of guitarist/vocalist T-Roy Medlin. Recorded by Mike Dean of Corrosion of Conformity, the tune closes out what will arguably be one of the heaviest EPs to blow out your speakers this year.

In related news, SOURVEIN is currently en route to Tilburg where they’ll deafen the attendees of Roadburn alongside Graves At Sea. From there, the bands will join in an unholy volume takeover of Europe through April, coming to a ceremonial close at Heavy Days In Doomtown in Copenhagen. See confirmed dates below.
