A strong, dark rumbling like a crossover of Industrial Godzilla and Aboriginal RoboCop - the strong foreboding intro to this new track by Mairu is more than promising - it is like another proof why the British Post-whatever-scene is one of the most vibrant at the moment.And Mairu are one of the many beating hearts in the middle of that vibrancy tornado! Enjoy “Atar”
Sol Cultus is a mighty record, one you shouldn’t miss when you like your Post-Metal atmospheric and your Sludge a bit more on the technical side. “Atar” itself is a great example for it combines the harshest of Himalayan Walls of Sound with a good feeling for the Industrial tinges of the Mid-English kingdom of Rust that was once the throbbing heart of the global Empire. It feels like you had channelled those sounds that are a little rough around the edges into the foundations of their miracle brew. Your set-up needs a little cleaning? Just tune in to “Atar” crank it up to 12 and watch those tiny flakes fall from your speaker!
