MAKE - Trephine Cover

North Carolina doomsters impress on debut...

Ambitious beginnings for this young Chapel Hill band who’ve merged a love for hypnotic repetition, dystopian sci-fi and all things heavy for an assured and intriguing debut. While the most immediately noticeable aspects of ‘Trephine’ are the dense, sludgy, post-metal riffs it’s the more inchoate elements – fizzling noise influences, extended ambient passages and a clear appreciation for the cyclic meditations of Lungfish – that’ll keep you coming back. These nuances and the band’s knack for seismic sweeps and surges should be more than enough to pique your interest and we’d wager that even better things are still to come.
