Fans of gothic death-doom metal, rejoice! A new single from Barren Earth is here to rock your world. Their upcoming third album is called On Lonely Towers, and if this song, ‘A Shapeless Derelict’, is anything to go by, it’s going to be a doozy.
Featuring flourishes of symphonics throughout the track, along with doomy, drawling riffs drawn across ravaged and acidic vocals, this song hits the atmospheric mark entirely. The guitars swirl together with clean singing reminiscent of Candlemass and My Dying Bride, complementing the atmosphere of the track perfectly. Featuring lyrics that are about a “forsaken girl [wandering] through both physical and mental landscapes without direction as hallucinations and desperation tear at her mind,” according to vocalist Jon Aldara, the picture the track paints of a bleak and desolate landscape is complete.
On Lonely Towers will be out March 24th via Century Media.
