Posted in news on February 24, 2010 by heathenskulls

Only a few more shows to go, be quick, tickets selling fast!

Heathen Skulls is proud to present from Olympia, USA, atmospheric black metal titans and Southern Lord recording artists Wolves in the Throne Room. Drawing comparisons to the eerie atmosphere bleakness of Burzum & the fierce blackened blast attack of Darkthrone, Wolves in the Thorne Room have set a new standard in American Black Metal by combining classic era Norwegian black metal with a devastating modern sound that’s entirety of their own. Together with feedback drenched, French funeral doom lords MONARCH (now featuring Robert MacManus of Grey Daturas on drums), both bands will touring Australia Nationally.

MONARCH Melbourne headline show / LP Launch!

Posted in news on February 4, 2010 by heathenskulls

As a pre-tour warm up event, MONARCH are doing a special headline show on Wednesday 17th of February at the Ding Dong Lounge in Melbourne to launch their new LP “Sabat Noir“!

Supports on the night are Hotel Wrecking City Traders, Agonhymn & Encircling Sea.

Entry: $15 / Doors: 8pm

Recorded in late December in Bayonne, France, and featuring Robert MacManus (ex-Grey Daturas) on drums, Sabat Noir is one 30 minute long track thats been split into two parts and spread across both sides of the Sabat Noir LP.

This is some of the darkest funeral doom that Monarch’s ever committed to wax, it’s way heavier, more textural, melodic and sonically dense.

Released on Heathen Skulls, Sabat Noir has been pressed onto 170 gram wax, is limited to 400 hand numbered LP’s and will have slightly different artwork to that of the European pressing, due out in early April for their European Tour.
