A Frith Befould
AEIR is a narrative-driven progressive sludge metal collective based in the UK and the US; featuring current & ex-members of Light Bearer, Momentum, and Basement. The first album ,Vol I: A Frith Befouled" consists of five songs, that musicwise partways continue where Light Bearer left off and beyond that is reaching new shores when it comes to the atmosphere and tonal approach. These first recordings display an emotive, melancholic and yet heavy conceptalbum that prefaces an original allegorical tale of feudal misrule, proletarian dissent, Mesopotamian divinations, and the rampant molestation of sentient environs. The project looks to create atmospherically dense and emotionally devastating compositions akin to the chimeric soundscapes mastered by the likes of Neurosis, Swans and Envy.
