|Occult proto-doom trio HAZEMAZE share their compelling new album ‘Hymns Of The Damned’ in full today via Doomed & Stoned and Deaf Forever. Official release is set to November 22nd on Ripple Music.
The Obelisk describes “Hymns Of The Damned” as “Righteous and portentous” whereas Doomed & Stoned explain that “this whole album is an ear magnet from start to finish and satisfies with that level of Scandinavian quality we have come to expect, but always admire. Skål!”
Brace yourself to hear HAZEMAZE at their darkest, most energetic and heaviest yet as they have truly upped the irons on ‘Hymns of the Damned’. The band is ready to take on the big league and are bringing the riffs the size of mountains, so get ready to be washed over with heavy, fuzzy riffs and low-ends. It’s soon time to rip it up to one this year’s best heavy stoner doom albums, ‘Hymns of the Damned. We are all damnned, we are all cursed so let the ripple of riff-waves carry us away.
Says the band: “We are extremely excited and humbled to announce that we have signed a record deal with Cursed Tongue Records and Ripple Music for the release of our second album entitled “Hymns of the Damned”. It´s an honor to collaborate with two amazing labels that really embraces the heavy underground scene in both Europe and US, and becoming a part of that family.”
Recorded & Produced at Studio Underjord together with producer Joona Hassinen.
HAZEMAZE ‘Hymns Of The Damned’
Out November 22nd on Ripple Music (preorder CD)
and Cursed Tongue Records (vinyl)
have been striking since 2016. The Swedish doom trio recorded a 70s hard-rock oriented debut EP entitled “Wicked Ways” the same year. However, it did not take long before the band began writing more songs, which evolved into a more doomed sound. Two years later, their self-titled debut album was released through Kozmik Artifactz, and the overwhelmingly positive response from every corner of the stoner/doom scene helped the band to break new territories and gain recognition in the local scene and beyond
Now it’s time for the next chapter in the story of HAZEMAZE, a record that is far heavier, darker and doomier than its predecessor. “Hymns of the Damned” will see the light of day in the fall of 2019 on CD and digital via Ripple Music and vinyl via Cursed Tongue Records.
