« Morierishas an unmatchable sense of impact; each smack of the floor tom and each warbly high note on the bass pop out of the mix in gritty clarity, whereas elsewhere they might have been mixed into near-nothingness. Unafraid of its rough and nastier edges, there’s no amplifier worship or tacky occult worship to be found here: just heavy music meant to rattle the bones. » describe Invisible Oranges editors.

Dripping with fuzzed-out guitars, soaring vocals, and swaggering groove, North Carolina duo CRYSTAL SPIDERS’ debut album ‘Molt’ (2020) quickly won the hearts of stoner metal fans and critics alike. Now for their eagerly anticipated follow up ‘Morieris’, bassist Brenna Leath (Lightning Born, The Hell No) and drummer Tradd Yancey (Doomsday Profit) take a lead guitar assist from Mike Dean — Corrosion of Conformity bassist and Leath’s bandmate in fellow Ripple Music labelmates Lightning Born — for a rollercoaster ride of doomy atmospherics, razor-sharp riffs, and infectious rhythms.
CRYSTAL SPIDERS fits within the lineage of Sabbath-bred influences ranging from Fu Manchu to Kyuss, from Weedeater to Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats. But their broad scope — which pulls eagerly from classic rock dynamics and hardcore punk intensity, psychedelic texture and bluesy swing — pulls the band closer to contemporaries like Year of the Cobra and The Well.
