Simply titled S, the sophomore release from Wilmington, North Carolina-based band Mesmur is a metallic beast lurking in a dense forest of terrifying sounds that we don’t recommend listening to with the lights off.
The band’s guitarist, synth, and composer Jeremy L. checked in about the recording, noting: “This is an album we’ve had in the works for a long time, and it is by far the biggest thing we’ve ever created in terms of sound, themes, and general scope. It’s cold, it’s oppressive, and it’s hostile, but I also think it has a melodic flow to it that should appeal to fans of various styles of heavy music. I can’t wait to release it.”
