HEATHEN RITES - New Album Out In August, First Single Available For Streaming

Heathen Rites, a project by Mikael Monks from doom metal band Burning Saviours, will release a new album entitled Heritage via Svart Records on 27th August. Mikael Monks spreads his wings into the northern darkness with his new project Heathen Rites. Heaving earthy doom, inspired by nordic folklore and ancient landscapes, Heritage is an epic and melodic hymn to northern nature and history. Formed in Sweden in 2018, Heathen Rites create A-level, brooding, lingering, godless doom perfection, that swells from ornamental euphony to rousing, up-tempo doom rock with a Scandinavian flair. Lovers of nostalgic proto-metal, funeral doom and blues Americana will revel in the dark folk setting of Heritage, where tone-full riffs echo across the hoof-thundering wilderness. Beautiful droning passages and punishing sermons to please fans of classics like Candlemass and Pentagram but with a decidedly modern nordic folk-horror flavour. The first single, "Midnight Sun", is out now to illuminate your dark and gloomy roots. Give it a listen! Link
