Titled Deeper Than Sky, the follow up to 2013’s self-titled debut, commended by Metal Assault for boasting, “seven neck-breaking slabs of crusty, swinging, dark heavy metal,” in a 9/10 review, was recorded at Light Rail Studios in San Francisco and mastered at Trakworx Studio (also in San Francisco).
Issues the band of the forthcoming release, “VHÖL continues to explore unbridled, high energy metal with very little digital processing, and lots of sounds, riffs and ideas flying around. This music is all about the ascending side of the manic curve.”
VHÖL‘s Deeper Than Sky will be released via Profound Lore on October 23rd, 2015 with artwork, track listing and teasers to be revealed in the coming weeks.
