Greek stoner rock/doom metal outfit The Same River have been making a name for themselves across Europe over the past few years. Now May 13th sees the release of their brand new album – titled The Weight Of The World.
The eight songs of the album embody the band’s love for heavy, rock-influenced psychedelic music. Lyrically, “Weight of the World” carries the band’s philosophical concerns about the decadence of human society filtered through the fears of an unknown world after this pandemic ends. Heraclitus, Albert Camus, Sigmund Freud, and many mythological aspects of our heritage (with a deeper meaning), such as Sisyphus and Prometheus, blend in a way and fulfills in rhymes what our vision for this world is about; solidarity, peace and understanding.
This week the band sat down with Dave Griffiths to talk about the album. Take a listen here:
