Crow Black Sky Release Crushing Second Album.

January 2018 sees the release of Sidereal Light – Volume One, the highly anticipated second album from Cape Town based atmospheric black metal band Crow Black Sky.

This is the first offering in a series, much darker than the bands earlier styles. The lyrical concepts on the album include topics such as the cosmos, time and existence.

The overall feel of the album is summed up perfectly in the second track on the album “To Fathom The Stars”: Within this existence and cosmos so vast, we are nothing, as is our past. Observing their motions and workings from afar – With reverence, with worship, with wonder, I fathom the stars

Written, recorded, produced, and mastered at guitarist and founding member Gideon Lamprecht’s home  studio over a period of about five months.

It was the only way to bring the concept to life, and to get the atmospheric/cosmic sound and essence that we were after. “– Gideon Lamprecht

Sidereal Light – Volume One is available for free download via BandCamp

“ From the voracious drumming and volatile riffage which serve as the unshakable backbone of every track, to the increasingly vicious vocals of screamer Ryan Higgo, whose snarling delivery serves as a potent counterpoint to the chilling, celestial melodies which underpin each song – is just that much more intense, more intricate, and more immersive than ever before.” No Clean Singing

A third, untitled album has been in the making for a few years; the songwriting is complete, and the band is currently in the recording process.

Name is Austin, peeps call me Austinrock. I like to interact with bands. You DO NOT have my permission to utilize any of my profile information nor any of the content contained here \m/{*¿*}\m/ ...THERE...OK. I'm a huge Melodeath metal fan. I'm proud to be a METALHEAD. Metal isn't for everybody, it's for the chosen few. Most friends I have tell me they don't understand why I like metal, that it is too much noise. They just going to have to listen beyond the noise and the truth is they don't have to figure it out, it is either in you or it isn't. Metal is my morning coffee and it's my night sleeping pills...
