FACT Magazine – Full Album Stream

Josh Graham is currently best known for the metal band A Storm Of Light (who recently appeared in our list of the top 40 post-metal albums), but lately he’s explored a very different direction with his project IIVII (pronounced “Eve”) conjuring electronic soundscapes. Next week he will release the project’s debut album Colony, which we’re streaming in full.

It’s not unheard of for metal and ambience to mix, but rather than something like Burzum’s Filosofem, Graham feels closer to Fenriz’s Darkthrone-side project, Neptune Towers, by pushing off from metal’s earthy roots and into deep space. Colony is a record that embraces science fiction tones, often feeling like the soundtrack to some unfilmed epic through all its textured drift and bubbling synths. 

Stream Colony below and grab it September 4 via Consouling Sounds.

BLACK GALAXY

EXPLORE THE FARTHEST REACHES OF SPACE WITH IIVII AND THE NEW TRACK “BLACK GALAXY”

Josh Graham’s A Storm of Light project focused on the dirge and purge of doom, punk and more, following in the footsteps and expanding on the teachings of his alma mater, Neurosis. Now with his new project called IIVII, Graham delves deep into uncharted territory to explore dark synth soundscapes and ambient. The new track, perfectly named “Black Galaxy” and featuring an astronaut-like figure on the artwork, sounds like the score for a trip into the great black beyond. Check out the new track below for the first time and order yours via Consouling Sounds but gas up first, you aren’t coming home for a while.
