Deseized reveal artwork, tracklisting and release date

The Oslo-based progressive hardcore outfit is ready to release their follow up to the massive "Architects of Our Demise" with the five-track bonecrusher, "A Thousand Forms of Action".

"A Thousand Forms of Action" was recorded at several different locations, it is mixed and produced by the band and is "100% Deseized" according to the band members themselves.

The official statement from the band reads:
"This time around we produced the whole thing ourselves, and leaned on everything we have from experience and knowledge to create the coolest release we have so far. The music and the approach to it is more mature and more thorough and well thought through than before,  and we have chosen to reach a little further out of our box than we are accustomed to. The process itself is somewhere between gung-ho guerrilla and soberly, calculated method".

"A Thousand Forms of Action" can be purchased from the 23rd of October and available on all digital streaming platforms on the 5th of December!

Silence the Sky starts working on sophomore album

The atmospheric heavy hitters in Silence the Sky are working on their sophomore album and are currently in the writing stages. This will be their follow up release to the critically acclaimed “Ancient” that saw the light of day in 2014. The recording sessions will start between late 2015 and early 2016.

Hailing from Halden and later joined by some of Oslo`s talent, Silence The Sky made some tiny ripples with the debut "Citadel" an EP consisting of Death Metal and Metalcore. After a live debut in November 2011 the bands two founding members had to let go and change the dynamic, both in sound and members. Staying hidden for over 2 years, Silence the Sky started working on their debut album titled "Ancient". During this process the original members, Petter Hveding Hazen and Ulrick Nygård Berg, headhunted singers Audun Mehl (BLODSPOR) and guest vocalist Magnus Granholdt (SHARING OUT LOUD) to complete the sound they we`re chasing after. Later bassist Andreas Solum Stenvoll (BLODSPOR/DEAD TROOPER) and drummer Jon Eirik Bokn (DEAD TROOPER/METAL MILITIA) also joined to secure a hard-hitting live experience. The result is a heavy and atmospheric sonic explosion with polite nods to both post-rock, death metal and hardcore.
