by Hundred Year Old Man

  • Cassette

    Leeds’ Hundred Year Old Man raised the bar for UK post-metal in 2018, crafting a rich soundscape that walks the seemingly impossible line between expansive and claustrophobia-inducing. It’s strange that a genre borne out of experimentation is now so reliant on rigid tropes, but HYOM are here to right those wrongs on their debut album, mixing in touches of both light and dark to provide a sound that’s bleak, desolate and corrosive but also poignant and ambient.

    The band know their way around a muscular riff, and aren’t afraid to throw in just enough melody to keep things alluring as well as abrasive. The band’s interlocking use of shifting dynamics is truly mesmerizing, and means that whilst there are obvious touching points in bands like ISIS and Neurosis, these inspirations provide only a fraction of the whole picture. HYOM are a band who know where post-metal has come from are keen to show where it should go next.

    We couldn't turn down the opportunity of being involved in the re-release of one of our favorite albums of 2018, available through us as a limited edition Cassette, with two bonus tracks ( one of which is a Hexagon Trails remix ) taking the run time to nearly an hour and a half. Download card of the 2 bonus tracks and sticker included.
