Beneath Oblivion put out a monster of a record back in 2011 in the form of From Man To Dust. As our own Shane Mehling--never one to sugar coat things--once explained on this very site, "[r]arely do you hear a doom band so good at integrating other influences, from folk to death metal to experimental samples, while being so fucking good at also playing doom." A testament to the album's staying power, we're proud to premiere the video for "The Atomic Mother", the record's second track and a nine-and-a-half minute exercise in devastation.
If you haven't already, be sure to pick up a copy of the album from our pals at The Mylene Sheath. You can also catch the Ohioans up close and personal most of next month on the following dates:
