Vinyl LP pressing. After a four year absence, North is back in 2012 with the epic the Great Silence. A twisting, heavy, gloom filled album of cosmological proportions, with howling vocals going back and forth between pure agony and harsh terror, guitar riffs tearing at the fabric of time, and drums and bass booming and blasting off into the atmosphere. After dealing with several on-again/off-again member changes, an extended writing process has resulted in a diverse, almost mentally exhausting musical venture into the great unknown of space. The record is even darker and heavier than North's previous records, the critically acclaimed What You Were (2008), the post-apocalyptic instrumental world of 2007's Ruins, and the cold ambient landscapes of their first EP Siberia. Recorded at Loveland Studios in Tucson, AZ with Dana Fehr in January 2012.
