Album Review

Haarp are a New Orleans sludge metal band. There have been a fair number of those since the '80s, most notably Crowbar, Eyehategod, and Acid Bath. But haarp chisel a unique niche for themselves, and it starts with vocalist Shaun Emmons, who sounds more like Behemoth frontman Nergal (that is, more like a blast furnace) than any of his Big Easy peers. He enunciates clearly, making all his lyrics (about being disconnected, stranded, etc.) easily understandable — which isn't necessarily a good thing, considering that images like "a tunnel full of teeth" show up in songs like album-opener "The Rise, the Fall." Behind him, guitarist Grant Tom chunks out riffs that sound like an earth-moving machine trying and failing to pull itself out of a sinkhole, while bassist Ryan Pomes and drummer Keith Sierra prove themselves capable of locking in at either midtempo punk speed or a desolate crawl. The production, by label owner Phil Anselmo, is excellent, giving each instrument its own space but building a wall of sound at the same time. There are definite precedents for haarp's sound, but they're on their own path, and this is a very solid full-length debut.

Customer Reviews

Eclectic Metal Punch In the Nose

These guys are yet another solid heavy band out of New Orleans and they're on Philip Anselmo's Housecore label. Heavy is sort of an understatement, I got cracked ribs just listening to the samples.

"Their music is crushing, resolute, dramatic and conceptually insane. If critics are going to try and lump them in with any one genre, then they'd better put the crown on haarp's collective heads once it s picked. This ain't Doom Metal by any stretch. haarp makes playing halftime sound like an original idea all over again. This music is essential."
~Phillip H. Anselmo
