Earth Ship stream “Resonant Sun”

Ever since their inception in 2010, Berlin 3-piece EARTH SHIP have built their reputation in the vast field of the stoner / doom / sludge underground scene as one of the most relentless and heavy-hitting live bands out there. With their thunderous blend of sludgy riffs, bluesy leads, virulent vocals and a massive dose of both groove and humour, vocalist Jan Oberg, his wife Sabine (bass) and Sebastian Grimberg (drums) have taken EARTH SHIP to the stages of Desertfest, Stoned From The Underground or Pelagic Fest, and tours with bands like RED FANG, TORCHE, CROWBAR or VOIVOD. After 3 albums on Pelagic, the band signed with NAPALM RECORDS for the release of 4th studio album “Hollowed“ in 2016. But the alliance didn’t last long, and the band returned to our welcoming arms here at Pelagic for album #5: Resonant Sun.

Here is a quote from Earth Ship:
“It’s time for us to unleash our fifth record RESONANT SUN, the consequence of countless hours on the road & intoxicated madness. We’re pumped with the outcome – and think we’ve managed to strip it down to the raw essence of what the band has become.

Drawing inspiration from opposites – RESONANT SUN will take you on a hard-boiled trip through a vast array of emotional oddities. We can’t wait to finally show you this filthy, fuzz-laden doom monster and hope that you’ll love it as much as we do.

Go let the fuzz take you!””

Band Of The Week: Lord Mantis

lordmantis2009 saw the birth of Chicago’s Lord Mantis with their debut record, Spawning the Nephilim, and they have proceeded to rise from the depths in the next five years, spreading their filth virally with every set of speakers they embrace. Throughout the years, they have displayed a very unique sound that melds the doomiest, most skull-crushing aspects of sludge metal with the atmosphere and intensity found in black metal.


Their malicious and offensive lyrics are coupled with their noisy and stomach-churning sound, which makes for some very inaccessible, yet almost euphoric, music. Their latest record, Death Mask, easily demonstrates Lord Mantis at their most primal and visceral, even as they continue to bend genres and push the envelope.
