SECRETS OF THE SKY: New Full-Length From Atmospheric Doom Alchemists Streaming In Its Entirety At Invisible Oranges

With the final descent of Pathway, the latest studio offering from Oakland’s favorite atmospheric doom alchemists, SECRETS OF THE SKY, now less than one week away, today the sound sergeants at Invisible Oranges deliver the awe-inspiring production in its lingering entirety.

Engineered, mixed, mastered and co-produced by Juan Urteaga (Machine Head, Testament, Sadus etc.) of Trident Studios with SECRETS OF THE SKY, Pathway is the gargantuan, thirteen-track follow-up to 2013’s lauded To Sail Black Waters full-length. Shadowy, fluid, dark and dreamlike, Pathway is a true sonic expedition that yields varying moods and textures with each passing listen. Metal Injection crowned first single, “Three Swords” alone a “progressive metal masterpiece,” while Metal Insider gushes, “Epic is a word that gets tossed around way, way too much when discussing music these days. Even after its overuse has been acknowledged, at least in metal circles, it is still heard in places it shouldn’t be…this is not one of those places. SECRETS OF THE SKY have truly crafted a sound and an album fitting of the ‘e’-word moniker. It’s a colossal effort with some stupendous songwriting and production work.” Dead Rhetoric shares the sentiment calling Pathway, “an emotionally draining journey… the type of album that you can just close your eyes and visualize your own tale, even as some parts seem to prop up only after repeated listens,” further advocating Pathway for having, “all of the inner workings of a great and resonating album.”

As a precursor its release, today Invisible Oranges is pleased to offer up Pathway, likening it to, “the doom equivalent of Alcest’s Écailles_de_Lune or Solstafir on last year’s Ótta, records with beauty, staying power and just enough grit to carry the day.”

Get lost in the overcoming sounds of Pathway at THIS LOCATION.

And sample the stark and gorgeous Andrew Nethery (Melvins, Kyuss Lives, Dead Meadow)-directed visual accompaniment to fourth track “Angel In Vines” at where you can also sample second movement, “Three Swords.”
