Have you ever heard a riff and thought, "I wonder what that would sound like if it were slower and heavier?" Well, GREEN DRUID has.
Since the dawn of metal, those with a taste for the heavier side of music have often mused over what popular songs would sound like if they were more distorted, more crushing, more... doomy. So in June 2018, psychedelic stoner doom collective GREEN DRUID went into Module Overload Studios in Denver, Colorado to answer the age-old question once and for all - Will It Doom?
In the first episode in the series, the band put LED ZEPPELIN to the test, with their 1970 classic track "Immigrant Song". Watch the video now to find out if it will doom here <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bHLyRKODPNo>.
GREEN DRUID guitarist Graham Zander comments:
"The idea for Will It Doom - especially with the first episode - came from taking old records and playing them at slower speed. Once we heard what 'Immigrant Song' sounded like at that tempo we started trying it with other riffs to see which ones translated the best. Sometimes the results were pretty unexpected."
Back in March, GREEN DRUID unleashed their monolithic debut album 'Ashen Blood', which Metal Injection called "The perfect jam for any fan of psychedelic doom", and Heavy Blog Is Heavy described as "chock-full of dense tones, crashing riffs, and a stoner haze so thick the album should come with eyedrops". The album also led to GREEN DRUID winning the Best Metal Band award in Colorado's lifestyle, fashion, culture and entertainment publication 303 Magazine.
