Stream The Otolith’s (ex-SubRosa) awesome 10 minute doom/folk song “Hubris”



The Great Doom-Folk Band SubRosa are no more, but four of the members have continued with a like-minded band The otolithwhose expected debut album Limina Sheet out October 21 via Blues Funeral Recordings (pre-order). They recently released the first single “Sing No Coda”, and we are now preparing the second single “Hubris”. It’s a 10-minute trek through dark fiddle-fueled passages, ten-ton doom riffs, clean vocals and guttural screams. The Otolith are masters at the quiet, pretty parts as well as the heavy parts, and it all comes together in this stunning song. Sarah says:

“Hubris” is a fine example of a piece of music inspiring a lyrical story. Back in 2019, [violinist] Kim [Cordray] wrote the riff around which we built this song. This is the riff that starts around 7:03. For some reason, when I listened to it, it showed me an outlet for deep-seated anger. It is anger towards an enemy who hides his identity, and in the worst case, this enemy is yourself. It is the enemy trying to scare you. Fear of losing what you have, fear of death and, worst of all, fear of taking the risks necessary to grow. “Hubris” has become our way of shouting at this enemy and banishing him. Giving in to fear turns us into slaves, unable to get off the hamster wheel. Instead, we want to climb to the top of a metaphorical cliff and finally be free, light-hearted enough to pass the Egyptian test of the scales. Stop fearing death long enough to live.
