Italian sludgers Deadsmoke will issue their second album for Heavy Psych Sounds this September. With the title set as Mountain Legacy, and newly-unveiled artwork keeping on theme with their 2016 self-titled debut, it seems pretty safe to expect the same kind of formidable tones and riffs that album promulgated in cuts like “Endless Cave” and “Wolfcurse.” Some songs just sound heavy before you even hear them, and certainly the stated thematic the record will examine is one of considerable heft. We’ll see how it goes, I guess.
Either way, one looks forward to hearing Mountain Legacy when the time comes. Presales start Sept. 1.
Deadsmoke is an Italian doom sludge band that sounds like amplifiers buried in the deep, with down-tuned monolithic guitar riff scraping the soil down to the core of the earth.
Slow, hypnotic, dissonant cadences recall the eternal need for isolation and the atavistic fear of nothingness. Sub-frequencies corrode the one last trace of human cognition, apprehension and judgment.
Your soul is already burned, smoke is what remains.
