Having burdened the Earth with thunderous, noise-ridden sludge since 2004, the great unholy beast known as Whitehorse has dragged its carcass around the world, spewing audible viscera in its wake — and the band have the scars to prove it. For two decades, Whitehorse has toured extensively through the USA, Europe, Japan, New Zealand and Australia, rattling bars, venues and entire neighbourhoods with their heaviness and shaking the very souls of the punters.
‘Death Weight’ is their mind-alteringly heavy new album. Brutal and beautiful, intense and intricate, epic and electrifying – this expansive double LP lifts Whitehorse’s already stellar sonic practice to terrifying new heights. Folding together elements of grind, metal, sludge, industrial noise and general auditory carnage, ‘Death Weight’ is a long-form magnus opus that further cements the bands rightful place at the forefront of the international art-doom movement.
