KOTM is happy to bring you this punishing split 12” between Suffering Luna and Suffer The Storm.
Suffering Luna team up with The Astronaut King for a cross country collaboration to bring you the feral offering “Most High,” which walks the line between mammoth-sized doom and psychotic noise, creating an almost trance-like listening experience. Fans of early CAVITY, GRIEF, and 16 will be sure to devour this potent piece of noise inspired psych-doom. Suffering Luna has been pushing their brand of psychedelic hardcore since the 1990's, periodically surfacing from the underground to play and record with power violence, doom, and crust bands around Southern California before disappearing back into a haze of smoke. Their partner for this record is The Astronaut King from St. Charles, Illinois, whose mission is to explore acoustic and electric guitar improvisation as anti-social behavior.
Suffer The Storm’s twenty-two minute droning funeral hymn, “Squalor,” takes the listener on an unforgiving trip to the deepest depths of human filth, despair and misanthropy. Guttural death metal-esque vocals pave the way for this absolutely devastating slab of doom. Samples and various atmospherics help to enhance the mood of grim foreboding, and bring the listener closer to the edge of the abyss. Fans of WINTER and MOSS will not be disappointed. Hailing from the San Gabriel Valley in the apocalyptic landscape of East LA, Suffer The Storm features members of LIFE IN EXILE, GUERILLA SABOTAGE UNIT, and FUNERAL DOGS.
