Stream Usnea’s Random Cosmic Violence in Full Right Now


UsneaI’m really into Portland-based doom-bringers* Usnea; I’ve already waxed ecstatic about two of their new songs, and I’m not really quite sure what else can be said about their new album Random Cosmic Violence that I haven’t already said. Simply put, Usnea are that rare doom band that can write cinematic, epic pieces full of drama that are ALSO memorable songs.

*Side note: why is it that bands that play doom are always labeled as “bringers”? Where all the black metal-bringers and metalcore-bringers at?

Anyway, stream Random Cosmic Violence below in full courtesy of Stereogum and see what I’ve been raving about. The album comes out on November 10th via Relapse Records and can be pre-ordered here.
