From Svart Records:
Burning Saviours doom-monger spreads his wings into the northern darkness with his new project Heathen Rites. Heaving earthy doom, inspired by nordic folklore and ancient landscapes, »Heritage« is an epic and melodic hymn to northern nature and history. Formed in Sweden in 2018 by Mikael Monks, Heathen Rites create A-level, brooding, lingering, godless doom perfection, that swells from ornamental euphony to rousing, up-tempo doom rock with a Scandinavian flair. Lovers of nostalgic proto-metal, funeral doom and blues Americana will revel in the dark folk setting of »Heritage«, where tone-full riffs echo across the hoof-thundering wilderness. Beautiful droning passages and punishing sermons to please fans of classics like Candlemass and Pentagram but with a decidedly modern nordic folk-horror flavour. Dig into »Heritage« and discover your dark and gloomy roots.
Let the first single by Heathen Rites, »Midnight Sun« illuminate your dark and gloomy roots!
