Texas-based DEAD TO A DYING WORLD has created an album of monstrous proportions with the long-awaited follow-up to their 2011 self-titled debut album, as Litany delivers over an hour and thirteen minutes of apocalyptic metal through six massive tracks which thrive somewhere between doom, blackened crust, and dark post-rock. The seven-member lineup includes vocalists Heidi Moore and Mike Yeager, viola player Eva Vonne, guitarists Sean Mehl and Gregg Prickett, James Magruder on bass, multiple types of guitars and piano, and Cyrus Meyers on drums, concert bass, and orchestra bells. Also invited into the collaborative fold for guest appearances on this album are some of the creative minds behind Pallbearer, Sabbath Assembly, and Pinkish Black, whose contributions bring the entrancing narrative within Litany an unapologetic authenticity. Litany was recorded at The Echo Lab, produced, engineered, and mixed by Billy Anderson with additional engineering by Matt Pence and Justin Collins, pre-production by Chris Williams at Tidepool Studios, with mastering duties handled by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege. The album’s artwork was handled by Sera Timms and the layout and design by Kevin Gan Yuen. The band’s sound reaches brilliant new heights on Litany; the record is a statement, a mantra, an epilogue, yet it gives just a hint to the musical manuscript underwritten by DEAD TO A DYING WORLD.
