VOW OF THORNS Announce Canadian Tour Dates; Streaming New Track ‘Meeting On The Astral Plane’


Canadian black metal doom fusionists VOW OF THORNS announce they will be hitting the road for a five-day tour of Ontario and Quebec with Minnesota’s atmospheric black metallers ASHBRINGER. The tour will kick off on July 12th in Montreal and wrap up on July 16th in London to support VOW OF THORNS‘ upcoming album “FAREWELL TO THE SUN” DUE OUT JULY 15TH to follow the 2013 debut EP ‘Forest Dweller‘.

Their first single and the album’s opening track “MEETING ON THE ASTRAL PLANE” is now streaming on Youtube an you can hear it below.

Guitarist D. Richards comments on the track:

‘MEETING ON THE ASTRAL PLANE’ tells the story of one man’s escape from physical reality to a place of infinite possibilities; an existence free of mortal boundaries. The escape, however, is only temporary and he must return to his lowly existence and face himself, which he does in the following track ‘Great Abomination’. His experience on the astral plane leads him to believe that death may be the ultimate escape. As our protagonist’s experience progresses so does the music. From the triumphant march of the opening riff to the crushing doom encased ending.
