Mar "Trust in Nothing" TapeSelf-Released
The crushing weight of doom metal unites with the urgency of hardcore in Mar's debut full-length Trust in Nothing. Vocalist Kay channels lived experiences of trauma and oppression into harsh, powerful screams, while the duo fluidly trade off instruments. The result is devastating sludge done by any means necessary, layered with samples and atmospheric interludes.
Formed in 2014, the two-piece met via a classified ad for a shared practice space in Providence. The two found common ground in their love for slow, heavy music, and originally performed with Eiríkr on vocals & bass and Kay on drums. They've since evolved, with a collaborative approach to instrumentation and Kay as the new frontperson.
