Brave The Waters is streaming Chapter 1 – Dawn Of Days EP in its entirety here, which is now out digitally and physically versions to be released at a later date.

Created by Tom Anderer (bass guitar, acoustic guitar) and Rick Habeeb (guitar), both of whom also perform in death/doom quintet Grey Skies Fallen and blasting hardcore/grind henchmen Buckshot Facelift, Brave The Waters Chapter 1 – Dawn Of Days debut EP was created with an improvisational, synchronized jam style. Spontaneously created with exceptionally minimal planning, and soaked in Strymon’s Big Sky Reverberator, some of the record’s six winding songs were envisioned and recorded in a half hour.

Grey Skies Fallen Releasing Introspective/Along Came Life Digitally As Pay As You Wish Format

New York blackened death/doom metal outfit Grey Skies Fallen have released Introspective/Along Came Life CD, is now available as a pay as you wish download format via Bandcamp.

The fourth release from Grey Skies Fallen, the four-song Along Came Life EP, was released in 2010, recorded during tumultuous times for the band. This is the last recording with original member Joe D’Angelo on guitar, and sitting in on bass was Paul LaPlaca (October Thorns, Zandelle). Two years later, they released the three-song Introspective EP, the 2012 recording captured at a point when the band was technically a three-piece, with Dave Case (Helmet, Afterbirth) providing bass tracks. This EP features the twenty-one minute title track, perhaps the most ambitious recording from the band to date. Both recorded at Keith Moore at his Audio Playground in Patchogue, New York, together, these “lost EPs” fill the void between GSF LPs, bridging 2006’s Two Way Mirror, and 2014’s The Many Sides of Truth, and now see rebirth in one deluxe digipak CD, displaying the artwork by Travis Smith in a physical delivery for the first time.

The band is continuing to write new material for their follow up album to The Many Sides Of Truth.

New York death/doom outfit Grey Skies Fallen will be releasing Introspective / Along Came Life on March 3, 2015 on CD and as a pay as you wish format here.

GREY SKIES FALLEN’s fourth release, the four-song Along Came Life EP, was released in 2010, recorded during tumultuous times for the band. This is the last recording with original member Joe D’Angelo on guitar, and sitting in on bass was Paul LaPlaca (October Thorns, Zandelle). Two years later, the band released the three-song Introspective EP in 2012, and was recorded at a point when the band was technically a three-piece, and featured Dave Case (Helmet, Afterbirth) filling-in and providing bass tracks. This album features the twenty-one minute title track, perhaps the most ambitious recording from the band to date. Both recorded at Keith Moore at his Audio Playground in Patchogue, New York, together, these “lost EPs” fill in the long gap in between LPs, bridging 2006’s Two Way Mirror, and 2014’s The Many Sides of Truth, and having previously only been released through Bandcamp until now, will now be issued together on one deluxe CD package.

Collectively issues GREY SKIES FALLEN on the upcoming double-EP package,

“This release signals the first time the Introspective EP and the Along Came Life EP have been made available in a physical format. These were digital-only releases, mainly due to the financial situation of the band around the times these EPs were recorded. Now, we are able to unveil these in a beautiful digipak CD format with Travis Smith artwork on the front and back covers, and also throughout the layout.”

GREY SKIES FALLEN has also been heavily involved in the writing process of their next brand new LP which will be recorded mid-year and released shortly thereafter. While they will be enlisting the talents of producer Keith Moore once again, as on the bulk of the band’s recorded works, Moore’s Audio Playground studio was heavily damaged in a fire last Summer. A rebuilt studio is in the planning stages, and in the meantime, Moore works out of a local studio where GREY SKIES FALLEN and interconnected acts Buckshot Facelift, Brave The Waters and more are also preparing to make new noise. More updates on all of the mentioned recordings will be released in the coming months.
