Damn, what a bad ass EP! Five riff heavy tracks whose names come from cities that have been completely wiped out by the sea. Music that can rock my balls off and teach me something new at the same time?!?! Oh yeah, dig it.
Favorite track: Rungholt.
Oarfish EP is the first release by Swedish heavy music project Oarfish.
Crafting a sound as big as the world ocean, the EP sets the fate of five sunken cities to music. Oarfish carefully blends raw riffs with shifting harmonies, odd time signatures and ambient sections. All while never compromising the overall heavy sound.
Follow the Oarfish, brave the depths.

A miserable, euphoric, atmospheric, melancholic, melodic, bone-shaking avalanche. Hike to a misty waterfall valley in Iceland with this in your headphones, and switch between screaming in futile rage from the mountaintop, and sobbing silently at your own reflection in the surface of the lake below. Inimitable. warmhotself
