Crow Black Sky Releases Long-awaited New Album
Great news for fans of Cape Town-based atmospheric black metal band, Crow Black Sky, they have just released their highly anticipated second album, Sidereal Light – Volume One.
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
The Third Album
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.
