For the unfamiliar, Tucson sludge trio North proudly carry on in the direct Neur-Isis lineage of sludge and post-metal, and do so with excellence. As the group celebrate their tenth year as an active unit, North continue to finesse their sound of crushing and foreboding riffs and melodic introspection to become an act that does not merely mimic, but lead the pack in keeping the form alive and well.

Take for instance the group’s stunning new track “Old Blood,” one-half of the band’s forthcoming digital EP Through Raven’s Eyes, arriving August 14th through Prosthetic Records. The track ebbs and flows through staggering southern grooves and suffocating doom to surprisingly buoyant instrumental interludes. We’re proud to present its world premiere, which you can stream after the cut.
