BIBLICAL is the sound of mountains splitting and oceans parting.
Formed in Toronto, Canada during the spring of 2010, BIBLICAL delivers crushing riffs drenched in cinematic
atmosphere. Their fierce live show has earned festival and touring slots with top artists such as KYUSS, DEATH
FROM ABOVE 1979, THE SWORD, RED FANG, TORCHE, FUCKED UP and ANDREW WK.
In 2011 they released a self-titled EP that delighted rock fans with a blast of tense garage metal steeped in
minor-key twang and sludgy, organ-soaked breakdowns. POP MATTERS called the release "a grand debut" while
stoner aficionados THE OBELISK praised the band's sound, noting "BIBLICAL's swagger is definitely their own."
But that was just a preview of the epic jams to come. In March 2014, NEW DAMAGE RECORDS released BIBLICAL's
debut LP: MONSOON SEASON to unanimous acclaim from rock and metal press. Lauded by PITCHFORK as a
"climactic, Red Sea-parting surge of narcotic guitar" MONSOON SEASON is a thunderous opus of haunted
psychedelia. While punishingly heavy, the album is cloaked in texture and dynamics, casting aside the tropes of
hard rock in favour of atmosphere, tension and palpable dread.
Drawing from folk melodies, heathen spirituality and trance-inducing doom, Völur weave a hypnotic web of chthonic noise on the yawning gap of silence. A deep sound that moves through melodies, riffs and timbres slowly as a seeress chants rites for souls long past.
