For many, the desert evokes images of brutal isolation—an unforgiving landscape of endlessly intolerable conditions.

I found myself living in the desert for a short period of time; having survived the harshest summers in the hottest temperatures, I discovered that the desert offers creative-types a deep peace, a stillness and unyielding stability; that that the sweltering mountainous topography is in fact a canvass for cultivating creativity—that there’s a precious beauty beneath the brutality.

I hear this expressed in the music of North, a Tucson, Arizona-based band whose heavy-handed music is equally as heavy-hearted—doom-inspired, post-Isis Metal adorned by musicality and emotionality.

“We really pride ourselves on bringing together [heaviness and musicality in our music],” says North drummer Zack Hansen. “The heavy coincides with emotional and beauty, and none of it overpowers itself.”

It’s easy to say North is much like Isis or Pelican, because there are components of each in North’s musical “sigh,” but there are particular aspects of the band’s sound that are unique only unto to them—perhaps it is the how well the vocals wail alongside the overwhelming powerful guitar riffs, or even how well the bludgeoning rhythm section builds musical intensity, but suffice it to say North’s sound is uniquely “North,” a one-of-a-kind aural experience outfitted by just really-well written tunes.
