Wereju
Offaly, Ireland
http://www.myspace.com/werejumusic
Offaly, Ireland. The ambient drone side project of Irish ultra doom heavies Wreck Of The Hesperus, Wereju deviated from the mothership bigtime, their take on the slow and low a whole ‘nother beast entirely, and then even not all that beastly. It wasn’t massive or heavy or sludgey, instead it was dreamy and mysterious, the low end more soothing than corrosive. There were definitely some intense moments, but for the most part, the sound of Wereju was a gorgeous blackened late night shimmer.
