"The concept album 'Suffocating In The Swarm Of Cranes' is telling a story about a person who falls victim to his thoughts and becomes consumed by the pressures of the outside world. Suffering from insomnia, the day by day routine and the security that things are completely out of control nowadays, all of this puts so much pressure on him that he is slowly losing his mind. It's a huge story about a person and the sickness, his state of mind and how his psychological conscience develops. More...

It's a huge story about a person and the sickness, his state of mind and how his psychological conscience develops.
"This story is representative for a more and more fast moving time such as today where it's way too easy to lose control and to get buried by the growing weights on our own backs. Compared to our last releases, we've got the most mixed style on the new album and it has a lot of dynamic. It's more aggressive than the other stuff. It still has influences from sludge, black metal, doom, hardcore or post rock parts. It's a wide range of music which makes all of us feel really comfortable!"
The album's track listing is:
2. Drowning By Wing Beats
3. In the Rivers Bleak
4. I Fade Away
5. Beneath The Crown Of Cranes
6. Giving Their Heir to the Masses

Downfall of Gaia has signed a deal with Metal Blade Records for the release of new album "Suffocating In The Swarm Of Cranes." The record label commented:
"It's with great pleasure that Metal Blade announces the signing of Germany's Downfall of Gaia! Downfall of Gaia eschews clichés and delivers a monolithic, yet melodic, wall of sound. The band formed in 2008 in Hannover, Germany and has released a demo cd, a split tape, a split LP, and a full length album. Their split with In The Hearts of Emperors can be found on bandcamp here.
"Downfall of Gaia started out as a crust band, but quickly developed further and have become much more difficult to compare to any other bands. Over the years, their songs became longer, slower, heavier; their influences range from doom to black metal, from down-tempo, to sludge, and hardcore. Their songs have and epic and majestic vibe, with enough musical peaks and valleys to keep listeners rooted firmly to the earth throughout 9:00+ minutes of music. More...
