Spanish death/doom newcomers SUN OF THE DYING have released a new single called “When The Morning Came”. The song is featured on their upcoming second album, The Earth Is Silent, that’s due out from AOP Records on November 29th.
“This song talks about the End. It pictures a barren world, in silence, in peace, after mankind leads itself to its own destruction. A vast emptiness through a raging Doom Metal storm, with acoustic and jazzy elements. One of the sources of inspiration of this portrait of void and despair is the book “The Road”, by Cormac McCarthy.” – SUN OF THE DYING
SUN OF THE DYING crafts a style of death and doom with its roots drawing influence from early acts like MY DYING BRIDE, PARADISE LOST and ANATHEMA, and adding a more modern sound inspired by the likes of SHAPE OF DESPAIR, AHAB and SWALLOW THE SUN.
SUN OF THE DYING began in 2013 as a side project between Casuso and Lavín from their main bands (APOCYNTHION and CRYSTALMOORS). In April of 2017, the band released their debut record, “The Roar of the Furious Sea,” with the mexican label Throats Productions, and after which they performed shows with OCELON, ADE, TRONO DE SANGRE, MALAMMAR and ATREXIAL and WOMB.
Now the SUN OF THE DYING returns with a breathtaking and ferocious follow up, The Earth Is Silent; a bleak and beautifully chaotic record of some of the best death/doom to come out of Spain in years.
