Fistful of DOOM Your sonic pleasure den will not be complete without a listen to this viscerally charged, sludgy, doom feast. The lighter moments (and I use the term loosely), on tracks like "Emergence," accentuate the murky, atmospheric depths of tracks like "Incantation" and "New Dawn." Finally, "Beast of Waste and Desolation" queues up to confirm your suspicion that there is, in fact, no light at the end of this tunnel.... or is there? Favorite track: Beast of Waste and Desolation.
Incantation 18:37
Spirals 10:54
Emergence 03:18
New Dawn 13:17


Horse Latitudes are known for their slow, primordial and powerful music, combining suffocating doom, black metal and hypnotic psychedelic repetition to form their colossal vision. Primal Gnosis marks the first studio contribution with Antti (Moog & noise), bringing a new dimension of dark synth into Vellu (bass), Heidi (bass) and Harri’s (drums & vocals) song-writing process.

Over the vasts spans of their tracks, the doubled-up bass guitars assail and attack notions of sparsity with a complex sense of melancholia and aggresion that, combined with the smashing constant of percussion, attain a disturbing momentum. They display their avant-ferocity in a refracted manner, confronting monastic chanting with necro savagery, leading clinically detached post-punk queues of notes in to noise-rock crevasses, all the while finding more fuel for their greedy, churning engine. A highpoint in their outré discography, and an impacting occasion for denizens of unconventional and epic heavy music.

The album was recorded in two sessions during Autumn 2015, the first taking place at Studiogenes, Ikaalinen (engineered by Kalle Nurmi), and the second at Audiospot, Helsinki (engineered by Kimmo Tyni). The album was subsequently mixed by Kalle Nurmi and mastered by James Plotkin.
