MOUNTAINS CRAVE unleashed "MOUNTAINS CRAVE" (EP), 12/12/2014 via NO FUN INTENDED.
FROM AVANTGARDE MUSIC:
These days we will offer a taste of our coming Spring 2017 releases....
Ladies and gents, please welcome Mountains Crave
"Istigkeit (We Saw Them Of Old)" is the track chosen by the band to present their debut album 'As We Were When We Were Not'
Including past and present members of A Forest of Stars, Old Corpse Road, The Afternoon Gentlemen, Gets Worse and Masochist, Mountains Crave began in March 2013. The band released their self-titled EP in December 2014 through No Fun Intended. After sharing stages with Urfaust, Winterfylleth, The Great Old Ones, Heretoir, Saor, Thranenkind, A Forest of Stars, Dragged into Sunlight, Harakiri for the Sky and Barshasketh amongst others, in May 2016 the band entered the studio again to record debut full-length 'As We Were When We Were Not' with Rob Hobson (A Forest of Stars, Haar) at Silent City Studios.
Expanding on the blueprint laid down in their eponymous EP, incorporating disparate influences from Pink Floyd to Wolves in the Throne Room. Deftly interweaving blast-led savagery with delicate and pensive atmospherics, the listener is stimulated on both a visceral and cerebral level. Inspired by Aldous Huxley's 1962 lecture on visionary experience, the album explores themes such as spiritual enlightenment, death and the afterlife and man's kinship and subsequent alienation from the universe.
