UK Epic Metal Duo LETHEAN have premiered forthcoming album The Waters of Death. Stream it via Bandcamp widget below.
To be released on November 9, The Waters Of Death is an epic doom monolith that will appeal to fans of the genre, especially those into Solstice or Atlantean Kodex‘s atmospheres. Accompanied by atmospheric cover art courtesy of German artist Stefan Bleyl, The Waters of Death is an album that details themes of decline, departure and the passage of time, reinforced by diverse imagery drawn from mythology, literature and the elements. Ambitious in scope and rich in the fundamental traits of epic heavy metal, The Waters of Death firmly places LETHEAN into their own category where class, intelligence and a taste for the bold reign supreme.
The Waters Of Death will be released on compact disc, vinyl and digital formats.
The album is the first product of the fledgling Seven Gates recording studio in Gothenburg, Sweden, with Jamie Elton (ex-AMULET) in the producer’s chair. Recorded in the age-old tradition with microphones in front of loud Marshalls and given an analogue mastering by Jaime Gomez (ANGEL WITCH, PARADISE LOST) of Orgone Studios, London, The Waters Of Death has a traditional tone that sets it apart from highly-polished contemporary metal.
