LORD DYING PROGRESSIVE SLUDGE METALLERS UNVEIL NEARING THE END OF THE CURLING WORM VIDEO
MYSTERIUM TREMENDUM FULL–LENGTH OUT NOW ON ENTERTAINMENT ONE + BAND TO KICK OFF NORTH AMERICAN TOUR THIS WEEK
"...its slow build into soaring melodies and heavier sludge is extremely gratifying, feeling like a journey was accomplished over the song's runtime." – Decibel on Freed From The Pressures of Time
" Mysterium Tremendum makes guitar solos cool again...." – Exclaim!
“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
Toronto, ON – May 6, 2019 – Portland-based progressive sludge metal titans, Lord Dying, today unveil their stunning new video for Nearing The End Of The Curling Worm. View/share the video here.
The track comes by way of the band’s Mysterium Tremendum full-length, released late last month via Entertainment One (eOne). Filmed by Nesto [www.nesto.co], the consuming, near-six-minute clip 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.
