about

European orders available here basick.supplies/collections/north

"A sludgy, post-metal masterpiece" - Nerdist

"North do the impossible on their compelling latest album: make post-metal not suck." - Revolver

"the compositions and atmospheres that North brew on this record are increasingly immersive" - Metal Injection

" this is one heavy band: flighty post-metal this ain't, world-moving doom/sludge it is" - Bravewords

"With Light the Way, North have jumped up an unthinkable amount in the ranks of their doom/post/sludge metal peers." - Toiletovhell

"There are elements of both Kowloon Walled City and Black Sheep Wall here, but with a more noticeable pain and sadness: the plaintive, desperately sad music polarised by the brute force and slow pace of the rhythms, and the vocal nastiness" - Ghost Cult Mag

"an authoritative display of sludge metal that knows what it wants to be and delivers with quality." - Nine Circles

"Light The Way chugs forward like an unstoppable locomotive, you can get the fuck on board or you can get run the fuck over." - Thy Demons Be Scribblin

"There is something almost therapeutic about what North have done on Light The Way and it suggests, to me at least, that they are turned on to something greater." - Two Guys Metal Reviews

"I can see these guys being the pioneers of a unique genre for metal" - Head Banger Reviews

"...imagines the epic progressive doom of Neurosis as post rock, roaring hoarsely over waves of riff that are almost symphonic in their grandeur." - Blurt Online
