Sourvein’s “Avian Dawn” Will Give You the Bird Flu
Man, Sourvein’s upcoming new record, Aquatic Occult, is shaping up to be one of the year’s best stoner albums. The band has already let us hear “Ocypuss,” which features Randy Blythe, and premiered “Aquanaut” at MetalSucks.
Now, they’ve released a video for “Avian Dawn,” and while the video itself is pretty by-the-book — it’s a lot of black and white footage of the band in the studio, which, while interesting to check out, isn’t exactly groundbreaking it its storytelling — the song itself is a kickass-yet-mellow sludge track. This is a perfect song for to hear live about forty minutes after you’ve smoked up, where the initial Holy Shit moment of the high has worn off and you’re feeling at one with everyone around you at the show.
Check out “Avian Dawn” below. Aquatic Occult comes out this Friday on Metal Blade.
