THE WOUNDED KINGS To Release “Consolamentum” In FebruaryWednesday, 11th December 2013
Candlelight Records has confirmed a February 25th release date of Consolamentum, the label debut from English doom metallers, THE WOUNDED KINGS. Produced by Chris Fielding (ELECTRIC WIZARD), the album will be available for preorders via iTunes and other digital platforms beginning January 14th.
Discussing the album earlier this year, guitarist and band founder Steve Mills revealed, “this album will be our most expansive and heaviest.” Indeed it is. Consolamentum’s opening song, “Gnosis,” clocks in at a mammoth thirteen minutes. From there it latches on to your soul as it travels a dark and desolate sonic terrain. “The entire album was recorded and mixed in six days during the hottest week of the year in a studio miles from anything in the Cornish countryside,” shares producer Chris Fielding. “Recorded completely live, it captures the natural feel of the band. I find it to be a real step forward musically and very rewarding.”
To date the Dartmoor-based five piece has released three full-length studio albums and a well-received split album with Richmond, Virginia’s COUGH. The band has been finding a growing American audience since the release of their 2011 album, In The Chapel Of The Black Hand.
