Torn From Earth

Album Overview

  • Post-metal trio from Hungary return with a massive sonic bombardment of heavy and bruising apocalyptic metal

  • The scathing vocals have a sense of desperation. Think Crowbar meets Cult of Luna with a bit of ZAO for that hardcore feel

  • Self comes close to being an all out doom/sludge affair, yet they throw in these elements of spacious percussion and guitars. Creating a vey layered Post-metal sound

  • Tracks like "Morph" bring in touches of hardcore, which makes this album so fucking entertaining, they don't stick to one heavy formula

  • Fans who love Post-metal will easily gravitate to Self. This album is highly underrated within the genre

Standout Track(s):

Kings

This song pulls you into their Post-metal world from the start. The song has a very slight hardcore influence at times. And the dual vocals are insanely unrelenting and work very well together.

 

Brew Pairing

Saber Tooth Tiger by Rhinegeist Brewery in Ohio. This 8.5% IPA hits with notes of papaya, mango and peach yet finishes with a crisp clean citrus bitterness.
