Secrets Of The Sky Announces "To Sail Black Waters" Release Date

Italian metal label Kolony Records this week discloses the official worldwide release dates for "To Sail Black Waters," the pending debut album from Oakland, California’s ambidextrous progressive doom collective, Secrets of the Sky. The following press release was issued about the band:

"Secrets of the Sky projects a unique brand of cinematic, cerebral, atmospheric metal with a persuasion towards doom metal and even more blackened influences citing The Ocean, Opeth, Isis, Agalloch and others.

"On To Sail Black Waters, three of the band’s whopping six-member lineup each make contributions with multiple instruments, layering synth/keys, violins and an array of vocal styles atop the crushing rhythm section and massive triple guitar attack, the resulting four massive tracks a dense and stunning, forty-one minute opus.

"The booming, pristine production of the album magnifies the band’s power with impeccable clarity, the outcome of a massive spread-out eight month period of recording sessions at Trident Studios with engineer/producer Juan Urteaga (Testament, Machine Head, Cattle Decapitation)."

Kolony will release "To Sail Black Waters" throughout Europe on October 4th and 5th, and in North America on October 8th. Preceding the album’s release, Secrets of the Sky will soon unleash a new video for the song “Decline,” which was filmed with director Andrew Nethery in Los Angeles back in June. For now, listen to the audio of “Decline” in the player below. Catch the band live:

8/06/2013 Stork Club - Oakland, CA w/ Lightsystem, Lament Cityscape
