Des Moines, Iowa-based trio DRUIDS have been around for the better part of a decade and released 2 full length albums and 2 EPs so far. The 2019 EP „Monument“ got our attention, not only with its face-melting heavy blues riffs and double picking attacks, sluggish drumming, psychedelic instrumental sections and incredibly powerful, rough yet melodic vocals all conjuring up the muchly cherished vibes of Remission-era Mastodon in a fictitious desert sessions environment… but also with the intriguing story behind: an unnamed protagonist’s journey through mystical worlds of the afterlife, with each song representing a unique spiritual lesson.
Druids certainly do worship the riff, and so do we. They will be recording their 3rd studio album and follow-up to „Monument“ in May, for a 2022 release via Pelagic. For now, you can head over to Metal Injection to listen how Druids claim „We Are Motörhead“ — we believe every word of it.
