Cerberus Shoal do excell in the ways of a hypnotist. The hazy guitars and aimless mumblings act as a mind masseuse and melt you down to a sack of lazy skin. The floating glimmering guitars and random windchime notes on Myrrh (Waff) are muscle soothingly good. The music is not very hard to describe either, because it isn't very complex. I have to disagree with you because I don't use to album to sleep, it actually wakes me up. This is a solid album, especially the three 'Myrrh' tracks.
Cerberus Shoal was a United States rock band formed in 1994 in Boston but largely based in Portland, Maine. They split up in the mid-2000s with some members going on to form Fire on Fire. The band's initial line-up was Caleb Mulkerin (guitar), Josh Ogden (guitar), Chriss Sutherland (bass guitar, vocals), and Tom Rogers (drums). They took their name from an old book of poems that students at Brown University had written in 1893.
Cerberus Shoal biography Cerberus Shoal was formed in mid 1994; where the collective came together in Boston. Caleb Mulkerin relocated from his native South Portland while Chris Sutherland and Thomas Roger were in attendance at universities in surrounding areas. While their final member Josh Ogden made his weekly travels from Falmouth to attend band rehearsals. The raw energy combined with clear evidence of musical talent is palpable. Their later album ‘Homb’, while more restrained, gives off some of the same force and would be a great lead-in to this album for anyone wishing to explore the band’s music.
Cerberus Shoal formed in the fall of 1994. All three were fresh from the American high school system and aspiring to begin a new way of life as well as a musical group.
The first recording done with Harbeson and Kovaceic aboard, Homb shows the band now fully settled into its own style of drone and psych exploration. While still theoretically a rock band, Cerberus Shoal clearly is more interested in exploring wherever or whatever exists to perform on or with.
