kriscarterart The next stage in the evolution of an already mature band is something to behold. DRUIDS delivered something both original and yet comfortably familiar in Monument and I can't help but hit repeat. A well constructed wall of sound that fits comfortably between the ears and the soul. Do not start on this album, start at the beginning and make your way through the story. You will not be disappointed. Let Yeyin drive you to Shevast... it'll blow your mind. Favorite track: Shivast.

New Breath 04:31
Speeding through dimensions Controlling my breath We’re quickly Quickly escaping the horn Running the passages Tunnels within I’m sinking Sinking with the heptagons I feel it in my mind I need it It's racing all the time I feed it Glow on the horizon Collapses at once Witness the dawn of creation I feel it in my mind I need it It's racing all the time I feed it Some day you'll realize It's reaping up inside When differences align, It's time.

Iron Healer 04:42
Walk through the gate of consciousness Stone floors drop from under you Align the spirit with chakra Body and night become one Electric waves Meditation Fall before your protector Healer My healer I fear nothing at all Meteors collide in nothingness Creating technicolor rays Landscapes collapse the horizon Bracing vessels for the annular Sifting through the heavy cosmic chaff Shall we take another age from reality? Electric waves Meditation Fall under your protector Healer My Healer I fear nothing at all Healer Cosmic arrows Buried deep In the temple Iron and sleep Healer My Healer I fear nothing at all Healer My Healer I feel nothing at all

Show your eyes through curtains of gold Will you capture the serpent? Rake the irons deep in your mind Feed the diamond what it desires I am seeking true purpose Free the blood trapped in his veins Hide your eyes from curtains of gold I am not your forgiver You will pay for what you have done Showing teeth to his master Shadows swallow him whole He is trapped..in a labyrinth of mirrors and eyes Reading scripts to the masses Beholder of future He’s awoken the prophet deep inside in her mind Out of the sun, he'll rise Honor the wind in his flight Smoke will rise from the cavern Slowly seeping the truth Build the compass align with the sun and stars Arrowsmen they must gather Pyramidian crest Form the shape of sacred geometric god Out of the sun, he'll rise Honor the wind in your flight Arrows to skin, spirit fades Fear what comes next, talisman Bask in the rays above Pray to the tide, when it comes Wave turned to flame again It carries you, to the end Rest your mind and see Colors in eyes, that seek Visions of trigon, in dye Mirrored to purify

The Whip 03:42
Razor to tongue Blistering Sun Breathing the dust Of the seasons Master of none Shielded from lust Race for the blood Of the henchmen Send them back from whence they came Whip in tow Sharp in the air Crack on the necks Of betrayers Who are they now? Cowards laid waste Leaving their vessels For the vultures
5.
Shivast 05:27
Staring through miles of dark glass At the end, cloaked in deep red Hidden bull, oscillation Tongue of flame, honors rebirth After all that I've seen After all that you've lived through How can you bare the weight When the winds are against you Left to bleed on your own Left to suffer the winter How can you bare the cold When the beast has betrayed her I am nothing without her Shivast holding the secret Curtains hung from the sky All her life she's been blackened Golden beast lies behind Waiting for absolution Show me what it desires Show me what it will kill for Giving into the eye As it lures you closer I am nothing without her Shivast holding the secret Lost through visions of Yeyin Found the creature in labyrinths Taming the bull In dreams of green And gold A paradigm Shifting in space And time

about

thecompanykc.com

"The Des Moines, Iowa-based three-piece’s music is certainly nothing to laugh at, with its acrobatic guitars, Circadian drumming, and power-driven vocal harmonies. And yet at the same time, the band doesn’t want to distance themselves from the sounds and trappings of the psychedelic rockers before them."
- Kerrang!

"While expansive and patient, "Mirrors" — which will appear on the group's forthcoming LP, Monument — never lacks movement and intrigue. The riffs are contagiously filthy, headbangingly heavy, and set to a commanding beat that forms a steel backbone to the probing wails in the foreground. With distorted vocals that sound like they come from beneath a layer of grit and wrath, the track is a scorching entry in the halls of psych rock and stands out from the crowd with its unwillingness to sacrifice fury for exploration."
- Revolver Magazine

"Druids are one of those bands that I expect to be cropping up in more places over the next few years. Just from hearing their new single "The Whip," it's immediately clear that these guys are onto something special. "The Whip" sounds like early Mastodon slowed down, stripped out a lot of the weird sound effects, and maybe recruited Scott Kelly and full-time as their vocalist. It's a song that mixes stoner riffs with furious vocals perfectly, yet forges its own identity with massive drum breaks around the 2 minute mark and full-band unison lines toward the end that are sure to knock your teeth right to the back of your throat."
- Metal Injection
