HULL : The Legend Of Swampgoat


This track "The Legend Of Swampgoat" by the band HULL is one that has been needed to emerge on the music scene / platform. HULL delivers the song in its true form, sludgy, melodic and extremely catchy. It's beginning pulls you into the song and midway picks up its tempo to deliver the punishment to you. When I put this on I was immediately drawn into it. I have listened to it numerous times. I look forward to picking up the 7 inch ASAP as it is released.

From the band "Originally tracked in 2007, Swamp Goat laid dormant while writing material for HULL's debut full length, Sole Lord. After a rigorous touring schedule, then the follow up to Sole Lord, the sophomore effort Beyond The Lightless Sky in 2011, Swamp Goat got lost in the caves and forgotten... until now."

The tune features on the band’s forthcoming Legend Of The Swamp Goat seven-inch released via HULL’s own Iron Orchestra Works imprint and Midnight Collective. Bearing the stunning artwork of Nathan Overstrom, the single appears on Side A while an etching occupies Side B. "Legend Of The Swamp Goat" comes in limited pink, blue, green, and white vinyl.

Elaborates Noisey, “True to form, this ‘new’ tune bombards the listener from every angle with clever arrangements and bluesy bluster. ‘Swamp Goat’ is a hazy, hellbent ride through thickets of distortion and syrupy sludge.”

In related news, HULL will bring their walls of sonic enormity overseas for a stint of live rituals alongside Boston doom bringers, Elder. The tour will commence on April 14th, following HULL’s previously announced appearance on this year’s edition of Roadburn in Tilburg, Holland, and swarm fourteen cities with included performances at Desertfest in Berlin and London. A European-only exclusive sea-foam colored version of the "Legend Of The Swamp Goat" single will be available throughout the tour.

HULL materializes as a massive entity storming stages and immersing their audiences in a blanket of grandiose down-tuned compositions. A shifting fault line of decibel heavy harmony, this collective force converges in a collision of thrash, doom, classic rock, and formal orchestral works. HULL commands their listeners through each riff with incredible precision, as a seafarer guides vessels through ominous waters. Submerged in cosmic soundscapes, HULL challenges the mind with flowing, off-time fugues and powerful, dynamic movements. Brace yourself for an onslaught of eruptive force as a new world of music is formed in the deafening clap of thunder that is HULL.
