Fostermother: Massive-sounding 7-tracker and Romulus and Remus!

Fostermother - Hedonist

Romulus and Remus were the son of the god Mars according to legend and lived around 700 BC. According to another legend, they were dieted by a wolf winner who was consequently a Fostermother for them. 2700 years after that event Houston fuzzed-out doom trio Fostermother share details for new album The Ocean on Ripple Music; watch Hedonist video now, a dark and prophetic video!

Originally a solo project Travis Weatherred, quickly joined by bassist Stephen Griffin, Fostermother  made an impression within the stoner and doom scene with their self-titled debut hitting both soft and hard in all the right places, leaving oddly-comforting destruction in its wake”(Everything Is Noise). Now a three-head hydra with the addition of drummer Jason Motamedi, the band signed to Californian heavy rock powerhouse Ripple Music for the release of its follow-up The Ocean. This massive-sounding 7-tracker cranks it up on all levels: it’s darker, harsher, slower, fuzzier, more rumbling than ever, and uncompromising in its ability to drag any listener into the darkest alleys of the human soul.

Frontman Travis Weatherred about the album: «The album is largely about dealing depression and isolation. It also speaks on individuals who would eagerly trade everything and everyone in the pursuit of their own self-interest all while casting judgment on others. These behaviors have a negative impact on friends, family, and society as a whole. Depression is viewed in two ways lyrically; a lack of desire to take care of yourself and the drive to move past it by seeking redemption and new motivations. The Ocean represents Isolation in society. I often find my healing/coping process is found best when I clear my thoughts in quiet room which is where the album ends».

All music was written and performed by Travis Weatherred (vocals, guitar, synth, drums) and Stephen Griffin (bass, keys, and additional guitar). It was produced and mixed by Travis Weatherred. The artwork was designed by UK-based painter Ryan T. Hancock.

Om Ulf Backstrøm (6841 Artikler)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
