Chaos Records is proud to announce the upcoming release of Ark, the new album from Sydney’s THE SLOW DEATH on March 16. The mournful new epic follows hot the heels of band’s 2014 Chaos Records split release with MAJESTIC DOWNFALL.
Ark crawls along the bottom of humanity’s vast ocean of misery through six masterfully arranged tracks of Funeral Doom. The sense of dread is omnipresent, yet so is the dark, chilling beauty of compositions that are surprisingly varied. Whether the stunning contrast of Gregg Williamson’s cavernous growl to Mandy Andresen’s (MURKRAT) ghostly croon, the seamless movement between crushing riffs and melancholic picking, or the bleak, windswept keyboard soundscapes, the one certainty is that Ark is destined to be among 2015’s most celebrated Doom releases.
Ark will be released as a limited edition (1,000 copies) 6-panel digipak with 16-page booklet. The album can be pre-ordered at this location.

The Chosen Ones
THE SLOW DEATH ONLINE:
Pre-orders are being taken for the new Graveyard After Graveyard (swe) ‘Hellhound On My Trail’ MINI CD, and they will start shipping in February 23rd.
Graveyard After Graveyard is about Rogga Johansson attempting to play a different style of music, leaning more towards the thrashier, blackened spectrum of death metal. Teaming up with the GRAVE guitarist and drummer of SINNERS BURN, the trio play some invigorating black/death/thrash metal that will have you tapping your feet and bobbing your head furiously. There’s a trademark riffing style, a subtle groove and lots of force in the music. This stands apart from the weak-sounding black/thrash revivalists and oozes sheer power and confidence. This is a very potent, compact and relatively fresh-sounding release featuring the tireless legend.
