Mexico’s Chaos Records is proud to announce the upcoming release of "Ark," the new album from Sydney doom crew The Slow Death. The album is due out March 16th, and Chaos Records comments:
"The mournful new epic follows hot on the heels of band’s 2014 split release with Majestic Downfall. 'Ark' will be released as a limited edition (1,000 copies) 6-panel digipak with 16-page booklet. 'Ark' crawls along the bottom of humanity’s vast ocean of misery through six masterfully arranged tracks of funeral doom.
"The sense of dread is omnipresent, yet so is the dark, chilling beauty of compositions that are surprisingly varied. Whether the stunning contrast of Gregg Williamson's cavernous growl to Mandy Andresen’s ghostly croon, the seamless f movement between crushing riffs and melancholic picking, or the bleak, windswept keyboard soundscapes, the one certainty is that 'Ark' is destined to be among 2015’s most celebrated doom releases."
Pre-orders are up now at this location and the track listing is as follows:
1. The Chosen Ones
6. Adrift More...
