Onrust tribute pt. 2 | Grown BelowMarch 2, 2014
We proudly add Grown Below to the line-up of Onrust Tribute pt. 2!
Grown Below arose from the ashes of Timer in early 2011, continuing the path to the full album The Long Now with the same sound, but more evolved. With the rising of this fresh band the decision fell that from then on Matthijs (who previously was the singer of Timer) also took on the guitar and helped the band sound more like it should. Grown Below may be influenced by the usual suspects (Cult of Luna, Isis, Tool etc. ) but they certainly go beyond being mere epigones. Mixing ambient and atmospheric pieces with beastly heavy monolithic blows to the head, their music results in a promising and unique sound that can only be grasped as dark and utterly bleak. The second album by the Belgium band continues traditions of the debut album, however, more conceptual. Interlaced guitar passages create an inimitable atmosphere typical for post rock while sludge metal riffs do not allow to monotony to dominate. Episodic appearance of bugle and trumpet ensure new sound which is not common for post metal. The album is addressed to fans of Isis, Cult Of Luna, Mouth Of The Architect, Rosetta.
