Atmospheric doomsters SECRETS OF THE SKY ready to release their sophomore album - check the first single


Do you enjoy psychedelic paths in music, over heavy guitars and gloomy sounds? Perhaps a touch of growls and harsh vocals to complete the dark atmospheric doomness? Then SECRETS OF THE SKY will surely take you by storm…The band from Oakland, California recently signed a deal with the mighty Metal Blade Records and is ready for the release of the sophomore album titled “Pathway”. The successor of 2013’s “To Sail Black Waters” that will come out on May 18th in Europe and one day later worldwide was engineered, mixed, mastered and co-produced by Juan Urteaga of Trident Studios in collaboration with the band.

SECRETS OF THE SKY promises a wholeheartedly felt experience on the meticulous, blackened soundscrapes they create. As the label’s press release states “sonically, SECRETS OF THE SKY aimed for a massive, clean, and organic sounding production. Much time was invested in obtaining huge drum sounds and the focus was on single performance takes throughout the process. The result is an ambitious foray into conceptual storytelling, coupled with emotional music full of peaks and valleys. This is a metal record, to be sure, but more importantly, it sounds like an album of music. This is not a random sequencing of songs or a search for a “hit” single; the tracks all have their place in the story, and the cuts in between actually drive the narrative through sound effects and ambiance. SECRETS OF THE SKY‘s Pathway is an experience to be had, as well as a record to merely be heard.”

The first single of the new album is “Three Swords”, which you can enjoy in the Soundcloud widget below. Guitarist Clayton Bartholomew commented: “‘Three Swords’ was the first song we put together for the new album when we started writing it back a year or so ago. In fact, the songs on the album were written in the order they appear on the record. The first album, To Sail Black Waters, ends with a single guitar part fading out, and the same riff fades in to the Pathway album via ‘Three Swords.’ The song is just a piece of the overall puzzle that constitutes Pathway, which I believe as an album is more well-rounded and dynamic as a whole than any of our previous work.“
