Shlohmo "Buried" Video

Posted by , Feb 12, 2015 at 12:33pm

Shlohmo shares a video for "Buried".


When speaking to The fader about his upcoming album, Dark Red, Shlohmo described it as "if Electric Wizard tried to make an R&B record, or if Boards of Canada met Burzum by the River Styx." For those of you familiar with metal, IDM and/or Greek mythology, it should be clear to you after hearing "Buried" that he hit the nail on the head with that description.

Beginning with a dirge of low-end that sounds like an electronic version of the bassline on Electric Wizard's "Funeralopolis", the song goes on to emulate Boards of Canada's "Julie And Candy" and climaxes with some revalatory distortion a la Burzum's "Dunkelhiet". Shlohmo's changing the game, y'all.

Dark Red is out April 7th.
