Misfit1969 First I must say this is just bass and drums and they fill the songs up! Yes I realize this is not singular, I do love OM. Second they have a Lord of the Rings epic which is kool. Third the lyrics are interesting. Good stuff from Boston! Favorite track: Awake.

wolfhunter Dirty. Dingy. Heavy. Groovy. These describe Olde Growth's self-titled release. I love these bass and drum doom duos, but these guys stick out, for sure. Plus, what can be better than a 9-minute song that encompasses the entirety of J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings Trilogy? Favorite track: Cry of the Nazgul / The Second Darkness / To the Black Gate.

Olde Growth Boston

With bass and drums, Olde Growth creates music that evokes the awe inspiring relics of the natural world - giant trees that span millennia, jagged, snow-capped mountains that only the bravest of souls attempt to scale, oceans who’s mysterious depth are as alien as the most imaginative worlds out of science fiction.

Track Name: The Grand Illusion
On these bloody battlegrounds / we sail a sinking ship
I've seen the future / and it don't look so grim
Time is an endless library of scenes
But we're stuck facing forward / on a bloody, one way track

Iron eagles fly in reverse in the glowing sky1
Bellies open wide and drawing up metallic pills
That sucked the fires from the ground and raised the rubble up
And all the life that was extinguished flourishes once more

Comets of fire / burst outside the rail car
Small points of light punctuate / the darkness!
As I lie here dying / will you heed my final words?
Throw away your stone / and KILL, NO MORE!

Iron eagles fly in reverse in the glowing sky!
Bodies ravaged as the sparrows fall in at their side
To rip the bullets from their flesh and heal their battle wounds
And take the bombs to be dismantled so they can harm no more!

Track Name: Life in the Present
Down and out, dry and heaving
Loss of hope, anguish
Being in time, ford the crossing
Choose to live, break the cycle

Your own mortality will set you free!

Scale the highest mountain
Sail across the sea
Ride the steeds of lighting
Swim beneath the clouds
Feast upon the succulent flesh of the Earth!

Souls drift on cosmic waves
Light of a thousand candles
Burns through the eternal night!
Track Name: Cry of the Nazgul / The Second Darkness / To the Black Gate
I. Cry of the Nazgul

Listen you can hear the sounds, the screams of the wraiths
Beating blackened wings against the air
circle like vultures o're the kill

War declared on all creatures and beasts
Against the trees that set their roots down in the soil

Ambush of the orcs, take up our swords
Their blackened blood will stain the ground!

Beware of the snake that bears no fangs
Follow into the spider's lair

II. The Second Darkness

Forces of darkness amass, legions of doom await
Battle wil rage, heads will roll
Rivers of blood will flow through the land
Fight for the future, fight for valor, for peace!
Shrouded in darkness, the light burns on

Great beasts charging, clouds of fire
Spineless cowards fleeing the burning eye

Vengeance, thirsty for blood
Darkness envelopes the Earth!

III. To the Black Gate

Heir to the throne, take up your sword
Put your helmet on and answer the call

Holy sons of old, lead the battle cry
Wield your brazen bows and let the arrows fly!

The paths of the dead come alive tonight
Men of the mountains, fulfil your oath to release your soul

Brothers of creation, raise your bloodied arms
Stand up to the shadow, singing a victor's song!

Blackened clouds stretch across the sky
To the black gate, see you on the other side!
Track Name: Sequoia
Rise, touch the sky
Reach for the clouds
Rings spread with age
Drink from the ground

Eons pass, empires fall
Seasons change, the tree awakes

Grains of remembrance, limbs as mighty oaks
Pillars to heaven hold up the sky
Towering sequoia, shrouded by the fog
The spirit sings...

Ancient as the mountains
Giant of the Western shore
Drank from the waters of a thousand springs
Roots penetrate deep into the earth
Mighty redwood forest, slay me with your shade!
Track Name: Awake
I dreamed of a river winding through open space
Trees and creatures I'd never seen
Filled a landscape so vast and pure
Birds sailed across the sky. The Earth turned...

Awake! Obey! Stand in line! Escape!

Your history is written in the books you burn
Memories eroded, all that remains shrouded in the words of elders
Exterminate the unclean, feed the furnace, the source of all energy

All you've ever known are shadows, the shadows on the wall
Your origin lies, your origin lies on a distant world
The truth you seek, the truth is just another layer deep
Open your eyes, open you're eyes and look upon the stars!

Waking minds can see what's been hidden
From our eyes, gonna leave this world behind

Awake! Obey! Stand in line! Escape!
