SOM (Junius, Constants, Caspian members) Release New Album ‘The Fall’
“SOM craft songs of epic melancholy that stagger the ears as well as the heart.” — Onion AV Club
“Serenely slowdive into shoegaze.” — SPIN
“A big, atmospheric mix of shoegaze, post-rock, space rock, and sludge metal, all led by Will’s ethereal vocals which give the music a calming, dreamy vibe that contrasts beautifully with the heavy riffs.” — Brooklyn Vegan
“A very particular brand of chunky, crushing metal that still retains a very hopeful, beautifully shoegaze sound to it.” — Metal Injection
Post-metal shoegaze trio SOM release their new album ‘The Fall’ out now.
SOM premiered visualizer video clips for 4 album tracks, all of which were created by visual artistJosh Graham (Neurosis, Soundgarden.) Metal Injection hosted “Black Out The Sky” HERE.
Brooklyn Vegan shared “Open Wounds” HERE. Exclaim! premiered “Ten Years” HERE. And, Heavy Blog Is Heavy launched “Prayers”HERE.
On their debut record, SOM “craft songs of epic melancholy that stagger the ears as well as the heart” (Onion AV Club) and “serenely slowdive into shoegaze” (SPIN). Drummer Duncan Rich and bassist Justin Forrest build thunderous rhythms that give drive and pulse to the fuzzed out wall-of-synth-and-guitar-noise. Dark and heavy throughout, their music is complemented by memorable hooks and melodies in singer/guitarist Will Benoit’s somber, lamenting vocals.
Featuring founding members of seminal Boston space rockers Constants — and former and touring members of Adai, Junius, Rosetta, and Caspian — SOM wrote and recorded their debut album at Benoit’s solar powered The Radar Studio, along with engineer Daryl Rabidoux (Doomsday Student, Drowningman).
The Fall is available on CD, cassette and download on November 9th, 2018.
