münn

Woodsmoke is an interesting label out of Salem, Oregon that specializes in fantastic lo-fi tapes from a number of doom, drone, and black metal entities like Leech, Soleil Noir, Mania, Ancestortooth, Dusk Summon, Vault Dweller, Destruction Ritual, and münn. Here I present the münn cassette in its hypnotic entirety. I guess Woodsmoke is too cult for a website. Anyone desiring more information should write to them, perhaps they will reply.

If you're at all familiar with the place, it's a little hard to imagine anything remotely cool coming out of Salem, Oregon. But if anything were going to come out of Salem, Oregon, it makes sense that it would be doom.

Salem Oregon gave birth to the THRONES! Have you seen the life size bronze statue they erected in downtown Salem? Joe with his double bass guitar in full bronze glory! Epic! Best Salem tourist attraction I tell ya!

Dead Earth Records has nothing to do with Woodsmoke. Do not contact either label for information regarding the other.

This tape is great. This is how slow terror doom should sound, just naked to the bone pain. Reminds me bit Monarch! - S/T CD. Thanks for this.

salem has always had some small pockets of goodness. i used to do house shows out in keizer, and had lots of different bands play, because there were always the jaded, angry kids like one arm and dead(def leppard referencing thrashy hardcore), sector 7g that was sludgy, or my old band that was a pretty blatant hellnation ripoff, to cold dead handz who are straight up hardcore... but for every leech, mania, etc. there are ten bands who sound like creed, tool, and now i imagine, nickelback. i got the fuck out of there as soon as i could. i cannot give enough props to the kids who run woodsmoke for their work to create something in that shithole.

God, this is so emotionally exposed that its confrontation is double-layered, both in vocal content and musical. Neither camp can contain its bitterness fully. Completely tremendous. Thank you for giving this effort the chance to reach a few more people, it deserves it!

R.I.P Joris. We miss you.
