This Is Caveman Music For A Crumbling Society
Hailing from Portland, Oregon three piece avant metal band Under Mountains sound like the slowly shifting tectonic plates that their name suggests. Take the one part The Melvins back masked slow dirge and throw in a liberal sprinkling of the trademark hyper blasts of noise from San Diego's The Locust and you’re somewhere near to describing what UM sound like.
They have one self titled EP of psychedelic aural terror out to date on the indie; Eolian Records and recorded in 2004, which is available direct from the bands website. A split 12” with fellow Portland dwelling spastic metal outfit; Rabbits is due for released on 27th May 2006.
