In short, hell f'n yes. If you haven't dug in to the Shooting Guns catalog yet, you are most definitely missing out. Single-handedly the most played band in the Captcha HQ this calendar year. I just can not get enough. Well, we just got some more. 15 copies of the SG/Zaum split. Approximately 20 minutes per side, so a nice long dose of some heavy, doom-y, end-of-times sludge. I love it.
The Prairies are meeting the Maritimes on a new split LP, as Saskatoon psych titans Shooting Guns have announced that they're teaming up Moncton fusionists ZAUM for a joint release. Himalaya to Mesopotamia will be out on November 6 .
Although the whole thing consists of just four songs, they're all epic in length. Shooting Guns' three songs on the A-side are each more than six minutes, while ZAUM's single-song B-side is a whopping 19 minutes.
According to an announcement, Shooting Guns are "hard at work fortifying the heavy end of the psychedelic spectrum, haunting the foggy moor between Sabbath-styled doom riffery and heavy pulse-riding krautrock."
ZAUM, meanwhile, are said to offer "a monolithic doomy mantra based meditative experience forged by bass and drums interwoven with sitar and synth textures."
Himalaya to Mesopotamia will be available on hand-numbered "amberstone" coloured vinyl..
We got 15 copies of this bad-ass split in. $22 shipped. Will combine with other orders.
