What a great day today! The new revelation of stoner rock / doom The Same River has finally released the new full-length “Weight of the World”!
The Same River is a band from Athens. From the first day, they focused on writing songs that could deliver the band’s vision of this world – a lust for life and passion for making music.
The album “Weight of the World” features eight brand-new songs for a running time of almost 52 minutes, embodying the band’s love for heavy, rock-influenced psychedelic music. Lyrically, it carries the band’s philosophical concerns about the decadence of human society filtered through the fears of an unknown world after this pandemic ends. Heraclitus, Albert Camus, Sigmund Freud and many mythological aspects of our heritage (with a deeper meaning), such as Sisyphus and Prometheus, blend in a way and fulfills in rhymes what their vision for this world is about; solidarity, peace and understanding.
