In a deadly storm of stoner metal mayhem 10,000 Years third and final single from their new album »III«, »Megafauna«, sees the Albatross-crew face the perils of a valley where time’s stood still for two million years. Or has time moved backwards?
This blistering new track will be sure to tide all disciples of the riff over well until »III« is unleashed upon the world on June 24th.
»Megafauna« is released digitally on Bandcamp and the usual streaming services, featuring new, exclusive artwork by longtime collaborators Negative Crypt Artwork.
2021 saw 10,000 Years lay waste to the underground world of heavy music with their debut full length album »II«. Now, barely a year later, they return with the conclusion to their epic trilogy.
Continuing with numbered titles, the new album is called »III« and concludes 10,000 Years conceptual exploration of mindbending sci-fi by way of absolutely facemelting stoner metal that will bring you to your knees in heavy worship.
Says bassist/vocalist Alex Risberg: “»III« feels like a continuation from what we’ve done before, a natural evolution of the sound of the band. We’ve expanded on the things we felt worked best the last time around, like the thrashy High On Fire-stuff and the more epic songstructures, all the while maintaining what this band is all about.”
Recording once again took place in the legendary Studio Sunlight with the equally legendary Tomas Skogsberg manning the controls.
The album will be released on vinyl by underground heavyweights Interstellar Smoke Records with a CD and digital coming from Death Valley Records as well as a limited edition cassette tape from Olde Magick Records.
