Many Blessings - Ripe Earth

Ripe Earth is the debut of oneman unhinged deathwave assault Many Blessings.

“Ethan Lee McCarthy is very good at what he does. His many projects (Primitive Man, Vermin Womb, and Clinging to the Trees of a Forest Fire to name but a few) have gained him notoriety in his local scene in Denver, Colorado, as well as on an international scale, and demonstrate audio torture better than or equal to anyone in the extreme music scene. His solo project, Many Blessings, continues this tradition of darkness, but in a deceivingly subtle and abrasive way with its debut record, Ripe Earth. It paints a menacing, monster-around-the-corner/in-your-heart kaleidoscope of sound that is part drone, mostly noise, and a great deal of texture. McCarthy displays a unique level of diversity and dexterity in his songwriting with Many Blessings. Rather than a one-off side project, Ripe Earth is rife with fantastic ideas that are given the time to run to their full extremity, leaving not one despair dripped note go to waste. A fantastic record for noise fiends, and anyone who has enjoyed McCarthy’s work so far.” -Heavy Blog Is Heavy

“From the Mile High City of Denver, CO comes something birthed from the lowest depths of one man’s own psyche. That man is Ethan McCarthy, best known as the guitarist / vocalist of Primitive Man and Vermin Womb but unlike those bands, this is something else altogether different. A thoroughly frightening descent into the innermost recesses of stark, damaging aural depravity.” -Riff Relevant
