IO Exclusive Album Stream: haarp’s “Husks”

. . .

haarp’s new record may be titled Husks, but in my mind it might as well be called “Porridge” because it does more than a few things just right. Obviously adjusted way below standard tuning, this album is slow and low enough to qualify as sludge/doom, but still retains the ‘rock’ part of rock ‘n roll–it isn’t so bottomed out that it can’t be followed.

And then “singer” Shaun Emmons shows up with his vocals that are reminiscent of hardcore, but pushed to a deeper level of dark and heavy. I can appreciate a man who brings just the right amount of growl and grunt.

As a follow-up to haarp’s first full-length, The Filth, we get less of a departure and more of a continuation of that harrowing sound on the three 9-minute-plus tracks of Husks. Why fix what ain’t broke? Like I said, Husks is just right. We will be streaming the album in full via the players below until the day of release on Tuesday, September 18th.
