Heavy as the deepest winter chill, the kind of chill that cracks the bones, Heavydeath are aptly named and aesthetically envisioned. Sarcophagus In The Sky is an album of dark midwinter hunting, spear-in-hand, waist-deep in snow, while silently invoking primitive gods to intercede on behalf of your survival. The is a mammoth album of immense, capacious death-doom, suffused with bowel-rumbling open chords of earth shaking malignancy.
Sarcophagus In The Sky full stream, review and interview at Doomed & Stoned!
“The album opens in characteristically stormy fashion with an ominous, rumbling – the sound of anticipation that I’ve come to identify with HEAVYDEATH. “The stone has a purpose,” a grave voice utters prophetically. “A new journey begins, soon after dark.” And with that, we are immersed in the dark, strange reality of the Sarcophagus In The Sky. As with all of HEAVYDEATH’s work, the riffs are intuitive, the rhythms well-placed, the low-end growling like hungry beast on the prowl, the atmosphere charged with electric mist. Heavy as all hell.
Something untoward is about to happen. A sky-bound monolith has appeared suddenly and without warning. Who or what is it? For the answers, you must dive headlong into each of these ten tracks. The new album is releases on November 17th and can be pre-ordered on LP, CD, Cassette, and digital formats.”
