Sigiriya have issued a warning as they head into the studio to record their new album…
“Anyone mentioning deserts or the tedium of stoner-rock in regard to us will incur the wrath of the Dragon!” bassist Mead told DoomMetalHeaven, half-jokingly (we think, although we didn’t risk it).
The band from South Wales are heading into the studio next week to begin recording their follow-up to 2011’s thundering ‘Return To Earth’.
So how does Mead describe their current sound? “Elements of doom, crust, classic rock/metal and spacerock are audible – all filtered through the rivers and valleys of Wales,” he says.
“From epic swingers like ‘Guided By Mountains’ to dirty rock blasters like ‘The Obelisk’, it’s going to be enormous!”
The cover artwork for Sigiriya’s new album will be created by Jimbob Isaac, the acclaimed graphic designer and frontman with fellow Welsh riff merchants Hark (and ex-Taint).
For anyone familiar with ‘Return To Earth’ or Sigiriya’s previous incarnation as Acrimony, it’s time to get excited. Just don’t mention the ‘S’ word!
INSIDE KNOWLEDGE: Mead has revealed to DoomMetalHeaven that there will be a guest appearance from Charlotte Nicholls (ex-Crippled Black Phoenix), who is playing cello on the album’s final track. Nice.
