Description

Traditional Doom, Post-Metal/Post-Core

This mysterious group from the UK plays emotional and crushing music in the style of Warning. In their unusual and intense take on traditional doom, The River combines mountainous riffs and harsh feedback with depressive female vocals and deeply personal lyrics. Their newest work, Ez No Ozunu, sees them taking a lighter, instrumental approach. Very cynical, yet captivating music that lies close to the works of Patrick Walker (from 40 Watt Sun as well as Warning).
