“A Sabbathian dirge swirling with Southern Gothic vibes and lifted above the fog by Crystal’s soaring vocals. For fans of Black Sabbath, Windhand and Royal Thunder.”– Revolver Magazine
“1823 characterizes EMBR somewhere between doom and ambient sludge or post-metal, but one of the most encouraging aspects of the album is that it’s less about conforming to style than it is about offering its own take through largesse and range alike, the changes in structure and arrangement adding to the focus on craft that is so prevalent throughout.” – The Obelisk
EMBR’s new video for ‘Where I’ve Been’ taken from their upcoming debut album ‘1823′ (via New Heavy Sounds) is undoubtedly an expert blend of tonal heft and melody.
EMBR are four musical kindred spirits who have delivered a crushing, yet beautiful debut album in 1823. At this point, it is worth stating that the title 1823 has special significance. It’s not just a numerical title, it has substance. Eric Bigelow (drummer) has been on the list for a kidney for around 4 years.
The songs on 1823 are loud, brutally beautiful, aggressive, abrasive and at times atmospheric, uplifting and emotional. Welcome to the next chapter of EMBR.
1823 will be available on LP, CD and digital on July 17th, 2020 via New Heavy Sounds. Pre-orders are available now: http://smarturl.it/Embr1823
