My little old Swedish grandmother used to say to me... " Steve, if your going to get into this stoner doom shit then fucking do it right " she would have loved S:T ERIK........
Favorite track: Black Wall.
The Shrieks From Below
I remember listening to this band some time ago, downloaded the demo (or whatever it was) probably from the Sludge Swamp Blog then getting bored with it very quickly. This however is top notch Stoner/Doom
Favorite track: Your Highness.
Debut full-length album “From Under The Tarn” is a brilliant first step of a Swedish doom metal band S:T Erik towards the top of the genre. The music is mainly inspired by bands like Ufomammut, Sleep, Om, Electric Wizard and High On Fire. But the combined influences of the members’ previous engagements (ranging from death metal and stoner to post-rock), extensive use of spacey synthesizers and something as rare as a talented vocalist, result in an interesting sound, quite unique to the genre. Psychedelic doom metal filled with dense riffs performed by S:T Erik is an outstanding discovery for adepts of the genre.
