SECRETS OF THE SKY will be test-driving tunes from their forthcoming Pathway full-length, set to drop next month. Thrusting forth thirteen dark brooding tracks of audio catharsis, Pathway features vocalist Garett Gazay fluctuating between monstrous growls and clean, soothing vocal cascades, all the while complimenting the twisted compositions of guitarists Andrew Green and Clayton Bartholomew. Bassist Ryan Healy and drummer Lance Lea round out the lineup, their rhythms and distinctive voices adding further depth to the collective’s meticulous, blackened soundscrapes. An ambitious foray into conceptual storytelling, coupled with emotional music full of peaks and valleys, Pathway is a metal record, to be sure, but more importantly, it sounds like an album of music.

SCRETS OF THE SKY’s Pathway will be officially unveiled on May 19th, 2015 via Metal Blade Records. For preorder bundles and a taste of first single, “Three Swords,” scroll on over to: metalblade.com/secretsofthesky.
