Barrows fuses atmospheric and heavy music in the form of sprawling concept albums. The band creates entrancing, circling riffs and rhythms intercut with explosive peaks and brilliant subtleties.
Weight of the Tide –
Weight Of The Tide is a heavy, dynamic metal band from Reno, Nevada, featuring the two most prominent metal musicians in the history of Northern Nevada, frontman Mark Moots (vocals/guitar) and Jason Thomas (drums), the two core members of December during that band’s entire tenure, 19942004. The band’s debut EP, Epliogue, was released in Spring 2014.
December were the first band signed to Earache Records via that legendary label’s US offices, and they toured extensively throughout North America and in Europe with acts such as Kreator, Destruction, The Haunted, S.O.D., Crowbar, Cephalic Carnage, Stampin’ Ground, and The Berserker in support of their Devin Townsend produced debut for the label. After the dissolution of December, Moots focused on The Swamp Donkey from 2005-2012, which allowed him to work with slower tempos but equally punishing riffs, as evidenced on both the band’s self released debut and on its followup, The Trouble With Crusades, on another UKbased label, Undergroove Records, while Thomas kept time for Cranium – an eclectic jazzmetal act with several independent releases – and other projects until reuniting with Moots late in 2012. As both the feel of the new songs and the lineup of The Swamp Donkey started shifting, Moots recognized the birth of a brand new beast, and named it Weight Of The Tide.
In addition to adding the mustseeittobelieveit drumming of Thomas to its arsenal, the band upped the ante further by adding former Knightfall/Beard The Lion guitarist Jestin Phipps and former Red Cel bassist Marcus Mayhall to its ranks.
Weight Of The Tide is now armed with seven devastatingly heavy yet melodic tracks recorded and mixed by SpiralArms vocalist Tim Narducci and Drag Me Under guitarist Jeromy Ainsworth, and are currently seeking a suitable home for their particular brand of sonic mayhem.
Before Epilogue was even completed, Weight Of The Tide had begun making waves with their live show, opening for Eyehategod, Diamond Head, Raven, Volture, All Hail The Yeti, and Gypsyhawk, among others, over the past year.
Gravity Lord –
