Oakland-based sextet, Secrets Of The Sky,will begin their next West Coast trek in just one week, followed by another tour of the coast just several weeks later.

 

First up, Secrets of The Sky will head out on a headlining voyage next Friday, March 28th, with a week-and-a-half of shows confirmed throughout Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Utah, Colorado and across their native California through the second week of April.

 

Secrets Of The Sky‘s upcoming West Coast tour with Godhunter was also announced earlier this week. On June 6th and 7th the two acts will rendezvous at the annual Doom In June Fest in Las Vegas, both set to perform amidst the lineup including Novembers Doom, Christian Mistress, Acid Witch, Ides of Gemini, Demon Lung and more. From there they’ll co-headline a course through Oakland, San Luis Obispo, Glendale, Palm Desert, Tucson and Phoenix. A special collaborative release from both bands is presently being finalized to be sold on this tour, with full details to be announced in the coming days.

 

The six-member crew has also been busy raking in new endorsements over recent weeks in efforts to continually re-maximize their massive auditory delivery, and recent sponsorships from Spector Basses, Dean Markley Strings, Eventide effect pedals and Pigtronix effect pedals have all been sanctioned.

 

Italian label, Kolony Records, released To Sail Black Waters worldwide in October, exposing the planet to the band’s expansive, powerhouse style of fusing progressive elements into their crushing doom metal foundation. Three of the band’s six members each contribute with multiple instruments, layering synth/keys, violins and an array of vocal styles atop the crushing rhythm section and massive triple guitar attack, resulting in a dense and stunning forty-one minute opus. Bulldozing over doom, death, black, prog and post-metal genre boundaries, the expansive power of To Sail Black Waters was recorded over an eight month period of recording sessions at Trident Studios with engineer/producer Juan Urteaga (Testament, Machine Head, Cattle Decapitation), and appeared on over a dozen best of 2013 lists including Decibel, MetalSucks, Metal Injection, Metal Insider and more.

Secrets of the Sky is six guys from California making some seriously dark and sludgy metal. If you have not heard of them yet you need to check out their music immediately. You won’t soon get their beautifully dark music out of your head.

These master metal musicians dropped their debut album To Sail Black Waters a week ago via Kolony Records and have just finished ripping across the west coast with In The Silence.

I had the chance to catch up with them over the weekend to talk about the record, touring and how things are going with Kolony Records.

Check out the Metal Riot interview here.

Posted by longhairedpoet on Thursday, August 15, 2013 at 1:29 PM (PST)

Secrets of the Sky Oakland doom metallers Secrets of the Sky have premiered the lyric video for the song “Sunrise” off of the upcoming album To Sail Black Waters.

Guitarist/keyboardist Clayton Bartholomew had this to say about “Sunrise”:

“We are proud to be releasing the lyric video for the song ‘Sunrise.’ The video was put together by vocalist Garett Gazay, and he used imagery that he felt best conveyed his lyrical content and theme for the song. We think it turned out nicely and summarizes the metaphorical concepts laid out by the lyrics. Enjoy!”

To Sail Black Waters will be released in Europe on October 4 and 5 and in North America on October 8 via Kolony Records.

Check out the “Sunrise” lyric video as well as an audio stream of “Decline” here.
