HULL‘s crushing Viking Funeral EP is currently streaming in its entirety via Decibel Magazine’s recently relaunched website. The unsung, 16-plus minute EP was initially self-released by the Brooklyn-based, three-guitar led sludge metal collective back in 2007 — their first official recording. It comes hand numbered/crafted with stunning artwork by Jorden Haley [http://www.karbine.com], (available in poster format for purchase via the band directly at: http://www.hullandhighwater.com/merchandise.
Said the band of the recording: “Viking Funeral is a two-movement EP that focuses on the life of war and struggle of an antiquated culture…This EP will eventually be part of a full-length album that touches on life, death and afterlife in the Viking mythology.”
