Hello, Friends. Welcome to the world premiere of the third album, Cycles of Mobeum, from the Des Moines, Iowa-based doom/sludge metal trio, Druids. The 8-song Cycles of Mobeum is set for vinyl and CD format release on June 3rd, 2016 via Sump Pump Records and today we’re offering a window into the entire recording! So, without further ado, sit back, relax and get ready for some heavy hearing.

Recorded and mixed at Wabi Sound by Phil Young and mastered by Carl Saff (Earthless, Coliseum, Urge Overkill), Cycles of Mobeum, according to the band, “tells the tale of Warpia and her home planet Mobeum (so named as a nod to the French comic book artist Moebius, whose work is a major influence on the sound of the record).”
