Chicago progressive post-doom metallers Taken By The Sun is streaming “Fuse”, off their new album Taken By The Sun, out February 24, 2015, here.

Stream “Ornaflux” here.

Tracked almost entirely live at Steve Albini‘s Electrical Audio Studio, engineered by Sanford Parker (Twilight, Voivod, Eyehategod, Yob etc.) and mastered by Collin Jordan (Eyehategod, Indian, Wovenhand, Voivod etc.) at The Boiler Room, all in Chicago, Taken By The Sun is an eight-track, forty-two minute audio expedition that recalls the confounding atmospheres of veteran sound contortionists Neurosis, Isis, Pelican, Rosetta, Mouth Of the Architect, Red Sparowes, and The Ocean.

Spawned in 2011, Taken By The Sun features members of architectural experimental metal technicians, Scientist. Though clearly rooted within The Windy City’s venue-quaking, riff-worshipping doom and stoner metal traditions, Taken By The Sun takes their audio manifestations far beyond those confines brandishing fuzz-addled guitars, grinding bass, cavernous drums, and dry-throated vocals fused with prog metal acrobatics, lush vocal harmonies, and pedal steel twang to heighten the intensity and plain epicness of their meticulous arranged compositions. With their self-titled debut, Taken By The Sun translates the energy and diversity of their live performance in recorded form. Tracked live with only minimal subsequent overdubs, the album is faithful to both the earnestness and magnitude of the band’s sound. Multilayered, nuanced and gristly, thick gnarled riffs coil around gravel-throated voice incursions, the planet rumbles, tracks heave like the sky is breaking.
