Petrified: "Rooted"

The dark, acid-folk inspired axe workouts from Virginia's Petrified evoke being lost in the valleys of the Appalachian, searching for a path out, all the while daydreaming of what Grandfather Rock looks like from the top. Of course, one could take the easy route, or the injured route, and get heli'd out of the region to a place dotted with Tastee Freez's and Popeyes, but where is the adventure in that? Petrifried seems to understand this, as, according to the artist, these dirgey guitar drones, as heavily influenced by ragas and the occult feeling of the Electric Six Organs work, are nearing adolescence, many of them already in their tenth year of creation. Now seems like a perfect time for them to go off into the wild on their own.
