With the release of their Metal Blade debut Suffocating In The Swarm Of Cranes on the horizon, Downfall Of Gaia have been slowly unveiling the album, with the latest being new track ‘Drowning By Wing Beats‘, available for streaming courtesy of the German division of Metal Hammer. ‘Post-sludge’ or something similar would probably be the best descriptor for the bands NeurIsis style brooding, containing trudging doom sections, suffocating riffs and even some distinctly ‘black metal’ blasts.

The recent (well, not really but the wound still feels fresh) demise of aforementioned legends Isis, it’s nice to find some fresh blood willing to fill the void so competently. Suffocating In The Swarm Of Cranes will drop on October 8th worldwide.
