During their prolific first decade, the Tucson-based gloom metal trio NORTH released fouracclaimed EPs and two well-receivedfull-lengths in addition to playing nearly 300 shows across America with the likesof Deafheaven, Red Fang, Neurosis, Pelicanand Intronaut. In 2015, the band’s profile will continue to rise via reissues oftheir debut release “Siberia” (2006) and their most recent EP “Metanoia” (2014), which will both be made available on June 2 via Prosthetic Records.

“Siberia,” which has been out of print for years, showcases the group’s compelling origins as a post-metal instrumental outfit, while “Metanoia” — which was self-released in limited quantities last year — displays the sludgy brand of doom that Decibel hails as “a wall of crushing, psychedelia-tinged post-Neur-Isis mania.” In addition to separate limited-edition, hand-screened and hand-numbered colored vinyl releases (white for “Metanoia,” clear for “Siberia”), the two recordings have been combined onto a single 12-track CD release featuring unique reversible artwork as seen above. Pre-orders are available now at
