Downfall Of Gaia Streaming New Album "Suffocating In The Swarm Of Cranes"

Downfall of Gaia has launched a stream of new album "Suffocating In The Swarm Of Cranes" in its entirety through CvltNation.com here. In addition to the stream, vocalist/guitarist Dominik Goncalves dos Reis has written descriptions for each song on the album, which should be of interest to fans as the entire album is sung in German.

"Suffocating In The Swarm of Cranes" is a concept album about an individual's struggles with living in modern, oft over-stimulated society. Comments Downfall of Gaia:

"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.

"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:

1. [vulnus]
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
7. [asphyxia]
