From Forbidden Place Records:
Forbidden Place Records announces March 3rd release date for »The Eye Of The Icosahedron«, the new double album by Dungeon Weed!
Dungeon Weed’s first album, »Mind Palace Of The Mushroom God«, was conjured in the early days of pandemic lockdown as a collaboration between multi-instrumentalist Dmitri Mavra (Skunk, Slow Phase) and Chris McGrew, studio engineer/session drummer at San Francisco’s Wally’s Hyde Out, along with singer Thia Moonbrook. A concept album in which a sorcerer bargains for immortality with Orcus, God of the Underworld, and makes a deal that goes horribly wrong, »Mind Palace Of The Mushroom God« was an instant hit with its eye-blasting artwork and heavy “wizard sludge” riffs. The band was signed to Forbidden Place Records within days and the first vinyl pressing sold out soon after.
Now, the story comes to an epic conclusion in the new double album as the sorcerer seeks the mystical gem that will free him from the curse of Orcus.
McGrew, Moonbrook, and Mavra are joined by synth lord Rama to weave this eldritch tale of dark, mind-bending magic. Hypnotic riffs flow seamlessly into dreamlike interludes, transporting the listener through the many shifting moods of this psychedelic doom epic. Dungeon Weed’s “wizard sludge” is unique a heavy doom sound that touches on stoner rock, black metal, dungeon synth, prog, and more.
