|Albuquerque, NM doom/post-metal trio NIGHT TERRAIN have set July 24th as the day on which their gripping and wholly creative full-length debut American Dream will be self-released. Theirs is a sound that is hard to peg, but does at times bring to mind acts like Neurosis and Pink Floyd. The riffs can go from slow, sludgy and droning to uplifting or face melting within a heartbeat. The mission statement is to make music that conveys the human condition and can appeal to just about anyone while sticking true to its post-metal and doom metal roots.
