NYC-area death/doom quintet, GREY SKIES FALLEN, has issued the latest in their extensive roster of independently-released recordings, with the Earthwalker single (via a free digital download, as the 7″ vinyl version is completed) all while the band continues to construct material for their next impending LP.
With merely two-songs, Earthwalker does an impressive job of delivering a solid new serving of GREY SKIES FALLEN’s mammoth musical ways, with over thirteen minutes of brand new material. This is some of the final material to be recorded at Audio Playground (RIP), with additional recording handled at Suffolk Recording Studios, the tracks recorded, mixed and mastered by Keith Moore. The namesake track, “Earthwalker” dominates the A-side, its immediately massive delivery fueled by a steady pace backing a grand and epic aura, with searing, blackened scorn infiltrating the powerful layering of multiple vocal styles which take control of the track. Side B’s nearly seven-minute “Safe Passage,” with a more plodding momentum, shows each element of the five-member faction pushing to the surface — intoxicating waves of synth, pummeling bass thunder, interwoven guitar leads, and that dynamic array of vocal styles culminate within one of the most inspiring epic doom tracks from the band to date.
Earthwalker is set for October release on 7″ vinyl, the pressing limited to 120 copies on grey/green swirl wax with a lyric insert, the full-color artwork throughout once again provided by Travis Smith (Death, Opeth, King Diamond) as with other prior GREY SKIES FALLEN releases. But in addition, the band has graciously released the EP as a FREE digital download to their loyal fanbase.
