Place Of Skulls Comments On New Album "As A Dog Returns"

Knoxville, Tennessee based religious doom metallers Place of Skulls have announced the upcoming release of their fourth full-length album, entitled "As A Dog Returns." The follow-up to 2006's "The Black Is Never Far" was recorded at Lakeside Studios in Knoxville by Travis Wyrick and founding guitarist/vocalist Victor Griffin with drums recorded and engineered by Mike Dearing. A brief video clip of the band in the studio can be found after the jump.

Said Griffin of the band's latest output: "The new album As A Dog Returns picks up dynamically where The Black Is Never Far left off. Where The Black... album had a bit more of a depressive theme lyrically, the new album tends to look to a brighter outcome. Musically we've gone further than ever before with dynamics and production. Though all the Place of Skulls brand of heaviness you would expect is certainly there, there's a nice ebb and flow with quieter parts which tend to set a very dramatic and melancholy mood at times to the overall album.

"With every album we've done," he continues, "our growth and progression has been evident, and this new release is no different. I'm really enjoying the growth of my songwriting as time goes by. I don't feel as if I have anything to prove so I think the writing gets more open, honest, and genuine with every release. We're very excited to finally get a new album out and hit the road again! Look for As A Dog Returns to be available in late September!"

The track listing is as follows:

1. Timeless Hearts
2. Breath Of Life
3. Though He Slay Me
4. Psalm
5. Dayspring
6. The Maker
7. He's God
8. Desperation
