It's been nearly three years since Nordic duo BARREN WOMB's last full length release. To better understand their newest album "Old Money / New Lows", one must grasp their heavy-noise-rock in itself. The new album OM/NL professes the band's deep evolution of band into an animal all of its own.
"Out of sight out of mind. The tape is stuck, please rewind."
At first listen there's no way in hell you would guess that BARREN WOMB is just 2 members. They are just too damn heavy, and too hard hitting.
Their sound is hard to pinpoint which is best damn part about them. With songs like "Drive-thru Liquor Store" they are almost mistaken for a garage rock version of the Foo Fighters. Then there are tracks like "Mystery Meat" which I was/am hoping was a Fallout 4 reference and they almost have this "sludge-punk" sound similar to The Melvins.
The 8 track album has a ton of heaviness and catchiness all the way through. Whether you're a fan of distorted or clean guitar; screaming or clean vocals, and always behind a wall of pummeling drums.
