A ritualistic, meditatively uplifting, doom soundscape, »Burning In Heaven, Melting On Earth« is a sensuous, ever-mutating musical experience. Sunnata produce a pulsating mystic dirge which shimmers with odd beauty and uplifting melodies. The result is an atmosphere of sacred submission immersed in huge dynamics for the duration of the album’s 46-minute expanse.
The band on new album: “Thematically the album explores different angles of religious fanaticism. »Burning In Heaven, Melting On Earth« questions the sacrifice of individual-self and the general sense of trusting your life to a crystal ethereal being represented by humans of flesh, bones and sins, and discusses consequences of doing so.”
About the song: “Ravens and crows were found at battlefields as they were feeding from death corpses. That’s why crows in various mythologies are considered harbingers of doom, but not only it. This bird also brings the power of foresight to those who work with it. Diviners, seers and sages alike believed that Crow spirit can see throughout time and past the veils into spaces and places often hid to humans. Crow as an animal spirit guide is not to fear change. Not to fear the new.
This song tells the story of people giving their life for faith. Convinced they are fighting the blind, they are all equal when the death comes. Crows are observers aware of change – the only constant in the universe.”
