Since their inception in late 2011, the Nordic heavy noise rock duo BARREN WOMB have been raising both eyebrows and hell with their deafening volume, heavy grooves and minimalistic approach.
Through tireless road work and a slew of critically acclaimed releases, the band have smashed their way into the international underground and gotten a well deserved reputation for being a live act you wouldn’t want to miss. Bloodshot guitars are whipped together with bombastic drums to create the backdrop for doomsday prophecies and stories from the dark side of life. Two sounds like ten when crude dynamics and the power of the riff collide to hammer their point across.
The duo have previously toured the US and Europe multiple times, where they’ve shared stages with among others Entombed A.D, Voivod, Conan, NoMeansNo og Årabrot, and have played at festivals like SXSW, Tallinn Music Week, Øya and Pstereo.
On April 22nd, Records Store Day, BARREN WOMB will release “Crown Control”, an EP somewhat out of the ordinary for the duo. Lyrically it’s still rooted in their usual bleak universe, but the distorted guitars and drums have mostly been replaced by banjo and acoustic guitars. “Crown Control” comprises 5 winding, misanthropic tracks in the AltCountry-/Folk-tradition, and will be available both digitally and on limited vinyl through All Good Clean Records.
