August 04, 2015  •  Leave a Comment
Following the recent news that the Arizona-based gloom metal trio NORTH would unveil their first new material with Prosthetic Records later this month, today the band premieres "Old Blood" -- one half of their upcoming "digital 7-inch," "Through Raven's Eyes," scheduled for release on Aug. 14.
"The track ebbs and flows through staggering southern grooves and suffocating doom to surprisingly buoyant instrumental interludes," remarks Heavy Blog Is Heavy while praising NORTH for "continu(ing) to finesse their sound of crushing and foreboding riffs and melodic introspection." "Old Blood" can be heard via its exclusive worldwide premiere on Heavy Blog is Heavy HERE or streaming directly below.

Upon signing with Prosthetic Records earlier this year, NORTH reissued two of their most lauded efforts, 2006's "Siberia" and 2014's "Metanoia," on both CD (a single 12-track release featuring reversible artwork) and LP (separate limited-edition, hand-screened and hand-numbered colored vinyl). The band hit the road earlier this summer on a headlining tour across the U.S. with support from Secrets of the Sky and Cold Blue Mountain and will once again embark across the States following the release of "Through Raven's Eyes" later this month. Full dates can be found below, including a handful of gigs featuring Set and Setting as well as select shows alongside acts including Primitive Man, Vattnet Viskar, Bereft and Inter Arma.
