DOWNFALL OF GAIA: Post Black Metallers Announce US Takeover

Post black metallers DOWNFALL OF GAIA will be returning to the States beginning August 16 in Wallingford, Connecticut with additional shows to be confirmed in the coming weeks. Additionally, DOWNFALL OF GAIA has posted a video that includes footage from their recent European tour. The skillfully shot, black and white video can be seen on YouTube HERE.

Dark, ominous, yet not completely hopeless, DOWNFALL OF GAIA‘s music is as uplifting as it is overwhelming. The aural peaks and valleys fill the often lengthy tracks with a rewarding listening experience. The band’s critically-lauded album, Suffocating In The Swarm Of Cranes, was released in October of 2012. The music video for “In the Rivers Bleak” can be streamed at Created by John Bradburn and Andy Paton and the clip, according to DOWNFALL OF GAIA, was filmed “on a rainy English night and delivers in a perfect way the mood we tried to capture on this record. It’s completely filmed in black and white and it’s a view right inside the story of our new record.”

DOWNFALL OF GAIA make a huge statement with what could be one of the finest post metal records in recent memory.” – 4.5/5

“Pitted somewhere between modern psychedelic black metal and barbed doom of Neurosis, there’s a cold smother to DOWNFALL OF GAIA‘s sound that envelopes you like an iron winter fog. With a pallet so rich in shades of grey, DOWNFALL OF GAIA have crafted Suffocating in The Swarm of Cranes to be as evocative as it is desolate.” — Terrorizer Magazine

“There isn’t a dull moment of this release, even the moody parts are fraught with tension as you wait for some sort of impending release whether it’s a hardcore crust beatdown or breathtaking black hued blasting peak, fraught with emotion.” —
