Naam: Kingdom (2009 Album)

One of the newest signings to Tee Pee records, home to Graveyard from last weeks fresh metal Thursday, Naam play heavy psychedelic doom stoner rock in Brooklyn, US.

From their myspace:

‘Disgusted by the lack of heavy, psychedelic rock and roll, We deliver our deafening sermon to bring a new dawn for all civilization. The vast seas cannot drown Us, the darkest caverns cannot conceal Us, We will conquer insurmountable foes. We are war, We are peace, We are time and space, We are infinite, We are Naam.’

Nicely put.

Their album, ‘Kingdom’, released (2009), is certainly one of those that take a few listens to get your head around.

Whilst areas such as the heavy stoner grooves of ‘Skying Slip’ or the cracking interplay between dreamy and heavy riffs in ‘Black Ice’ will grab you from the first listen, other tracks such as the opener ‘Kingdom’, running at 16.24, and the exquisitely atmospheric ‘Icy Row’ definitely reveal different experiences with each listen.

To get you started, here’s my personal favorite off the album, the heavily Sabbath influenced ‘Frosted Tread’:

Here’s hoping they make their way to England soon as their live shows look like an absolute treat, here they are performing ‘Kingdom’ recently:
