Aseethe - Red Horizon

Unlike their usual Funeral Doom/Atmosludge/Drone Doom shizz, this is a reinterpretation of a couple of Barn Owl riffs from their album The Conjurer: very stonerish. I first came across Aseethe when I was searching for new drone doom, and found Reverent Burden. They follow Earth's later stoner work in that it is both repetitive but not totally drone; more relying on a chord for structure and not being simply BWOOOOOOOOOOMMMMM-style drone/doom metal. This, on the other hand, is much dronier and, despite being a "cover" of Barn Owl's work (which is in itself very referential to Earth), they have done what many consider impossible: the cover is better than the source. For nine minutes long, this is one of the best EPs I've seen released in some time in the drone rock scene. Get it.
