A follow up to 2015’s critically acclaimed debut Out of the Garden, The Ruins of Fading Light is a collection of existential meditations set to the backdrop of looming, apocryphal vestiges from a lost dark age. The lyrics explore the limits of faith and family, life and loss, strength and pride. Between thundering riffs and plaintive acoustic moments, the music explores new territories on the landscape of epic doom and heavy metal. Still, one message echos as CRYPT SERMON march onward, “We’re doomed.”
The Ruins of Fading Light was again recorded, mixed, and mastered by Arthur Rizk (POWER TRIP, ETERNAL CHAMPION, SUMERLANDS, and more) at Creep Records. Album art comes courtesy of vocalist Brooks Wilson.
