UK Epic Metal Duo LETHEAN have premiered forthcoming album The Waters of Death. Stream it at lethean-uk.bandcamp.com/
To be released on November 9, The Waters Of Death is an epic doom monolith that will appeal to fans of the genre, especially those into Solstice or Atlantean Kodex’s atmospheres. Accompanied by atmospheric cover art courtesy of German artist Stefan Bleyl, The Waters of Death is an album that details themes of decline, departure and the passage of time, reinforced by diverse imagery drawn from mythology, literature and the elements. Ambitious in scope and rich in the fundamental traits of epic heavy metal, The Waters of Death firmly places LETHEAN into their own category where class, intelligence and a taste for the bold reign supreme.
The Waters Of Death will be released on compact disc, vinyl and digital formats. Visit the links below to pre-order the album.
LP (limited 400 copies, black vinyl, includes insert & download card):
The album is the first product of the fledgling Seven Gates recording studio in Gothenburg, Sweden, with Jamie Elton (ex-AMULET) in the producer’s chair. Recorded in the age-old tradition with microphones in front of loud Marshalls and given an analogue mastering by Jaime Gomez (ANGEL WITCH, PARADISE LOST) of Orgone Studios, London, The Waters Of Death has a traditional tone that sets it apart from highly-polished contemporary metal.
“With ‘The Waters of Death’ Lethean delivers the epic metal debut of the year!”
– Hellfire Magazin
“Fans of epic heavy metal take note- anyone into the stuff should be into this, and I’m sure plenty of others would as well if they have any passing interest in heavy metal.”
