Today's "New Band To Burn One To" comes to you from Denmark.
Plöw is a band that started in the spring of 2009. Originally founded by front man Rune Bæk and lead guitarist James Becker. Later that year two of their old Højskole friends joined them. Mads Bruun Rasmusen respectively playing bass and Søren Stenger tightening up the rhythm department. About 3 months after the band got fully formed they recorded their first EP. This 6 song self titled debut was recorded at M&T studios in south Jylland and was then later on released in February of 2010. The release came only a week before Plöw emerged on their first tour. The tour was a 9 day tour around Denmark where they served as a support band for the Swedish Stoner Rock band New Keepers of the Water Towers.
Following the tour Plöw kept on roaming the underground scene of Denmark. Playing a handful of gigs inside and out of Aarhus. Teaming up with bands like Magnified Eye, Double Space, AEDRA, Drön, Ruun and Hexis. In January 2011 Plöw emerged to the M&T studio again tracking what would come to be their next EP. Plöw started by releasing the single High Tide with a following video. The video has gotten allot of praise around the viral community as well as the song. In December 2011 Plöw released their second EP, Bicentennial Picnic.
Bicentennial Picnic contains 4 tracks including the single High Tide. Bicentennial Picnic is only available online at the moment. But in early 2012 it will be released in a physical form and will be for sale at their live concerts.
Stay tuned for more news and updates.
"Sometimes a band's name is as appropriate as to the music they play. Plow "plows" through each track with reckless abandon and in a scene which was once vibrant and healthy, now just nothing more than trampled wasteland. Plow plays a rumbling brand of Stoner Metal enhanced with an element of resonating Sludge overtones. Their 6-song EP "Bicentennial Picnic" is just a tease as what to expect from Plow. The guitars scream and hum, drums are beaten to a pulp, and the vocals seer to the point you are gasping for air. Once the band lets up you find yourself not wanting but needing more. Until then we have this EP, now go get your fix."(((gogoyoko|behance|youtube)))
