Barren Earth: Back and Melo-Doomier Than Ever with “On Lonely Towers”
That barren streak comes to an end right now with “On Lonely Towers,” the title track from Barren Earth’s forthcoming third full-length, out March 30th via Century Media. The track delivers everything you want from this band and more — supremely doomy and soulful melancholy, an epic, demanding song structure (nearly 12 minutes!) and that [old] Opethian sense of composition throughout. New frontman Jón Aldará does a fantastic job on both the growls and cleans. I’m confident this album will rip it.
