Doom/sludge metal trio Druids have released the music video for "Dreams of a Surface," the lead single from their new album Cycles of Mobeum, out now on Sump Pump Records.
Druids’ third album, Cycles of Mobeum, tells the tale of Warpia and her home planet Mobeum (so named as a nod to the French comic book artist Moebius, whose work is a major influence on the sound of the record). The doom/sludge metal trio from Des Moines that Band Bombshell calls “thrilling” released the 8-song full length on June 3rd from Sump Pump Records, with cover artwork by Mark Facey.
Druids’ debut was released first as a limited edition CD on Ruleogy Records and later that year on cassette by Ea, Lord of the Tapes, before the album was re-released on CD by Austrian label PsychDOOMelic Records with a reissue on LP by Don’t Shoot Records. Druids put out their follow-up album, The Sound of Meditation, in their present form of a trio in 2013.
Cycles of Mobeum, recorded and mixed by Phil Young at Wabi Sound and mastered by Carl Saff (Earthless, Coliseum, Urge Overkill), was released on June 3rd on CD and vinyl formats on Sump Pump Records.
