With a wealth of experience from internationally renowned acts; from former members of Finnish metallers AMORPHIS, to members of SWALLOW THE SUN, MOONSORROW and KREATOR; BARREN EARTH concocted some progressive and folk-textured death / doom magic of the highest order on their stunning 2010 debut album on Peaceville Records. Entitled Curse of the Red River, the album combined the best elements of soaring metal, prog, and more obscure psychedelic rock - from OPETH to PINK FLOYD, and PARADISE LOST to JETHRO TULL - and was released to universal praise. The Curse of the Red River recording session took place at Seawolf Studios, Helsinki (GHOST BRIGADE) in Summer 2009, with mixing carried out by the prolific Dan Swanö (KATATONIA, OPETH), who at the time commented: "One of the best albums I have ever had the privilege to mix. The album is THAT good!!". The artwork comes courtesy of Travis Smith (OPETH, KATATONIA, BLOODBATH).
