Portland-based progressive sludge metal titans LORD DYING today unveil their stunning new video for “Nearing The End Of The Curling Worm.”
The track comes by way of the band’sMysterium Tremendum full-length, released late last month via Entertainment One (eOne). Filmed by Nesto [www.nesto.co], the consuming, near-six-minute clips fuses performance footage with kaleidoscopic, often unsettling dreamscape imagery perfectly capturing the track’s monolithic heaviness both in sound and theme.
LORD DYING’s Mysterium Tremendum was recorded at Los Angeles’ West Valley Recording Studios in August of 2018 with producer Mike Plotnikoff (Fear Factory, In Flames), mastered by Howie Weinberg (Slayer, Nirvana, Pantera, Red Hot Chili Peppers), and boasts the arresting planetary landscape-inspired cover art of Steve R. Dodd. A colossal, riff-heavy concept album borne out of personal sorrow, Mysterium Tremendum delivers eleven heaving tracks that examine death and what may or may not lie beyond.
LORD DYING will kick off a North American headlining tour in support of Mysterium Tremendum on May 8th in Seattle, Washington. The journey will wind its way through more than two dozen cities, concluding on June 8th in the band’s home city of Portland, Oregon. Support will be provided by psychedelic doom duo Year Of The Cobra. See all confirmed dates below.
“…its use of swelling melancholia during the two-minute introduction sounds like the prelude to demise, complete with hints of violin that seamlessly metamorphise into a new brand of LORD DYING sludge. Guitarist/vocalist Erik Olson’s vocal range has expanded this time around, offering clear and refined death growls that complement the progressive and euphonious riffs.” – MetalSucks on “Freed From The Pressures Of Time”
“LORD DYING’s about-face came out of nowhere and it works despite the odds. Mysterium Tremendum is definitely album of the year caliber and rightfully so because it’s more than an album, it’s an experience.” – Indy Metal Vault
“Mysterium Tremendum is an entirely different animal, mixing the band’s masterful use of heavier-than-thou bucketfuls of sludge with more progressive musical leanings, acoustic interludes, and actual singing. The result is a massive and mature musical study of the psychology of death and what might await us in the afterlife, replete with any and all misgivings we might harbor regarding our collective mortality. This album, and its concept centered around death signals a triumphant rebirth for LORD DYING as a band. Do not miss out on this experience.” — Heavy Music HQ Best Heavy Metal Albums April 2019
