... a little late on this, but Sky Burial are releasing Where Four Rivers Flow on LP through Replenish Records. I have definitely been digging this a lot lately.
Formed in Tennessee in early 2009, Sky Burial is a four-piece band from Nashville that combines elements of doom, post-metal, and post-rock to create a somber, yet peaceful atmosphere of minimalistic arrangements and passionate segues. The band's heavily instrumental approach to post-metal is sparsely decorated with messages of self-betterment and hope.

...is finally available.
Limited to 350 copies on single sided Clear vinyl and just 50 copies on tape. This might be one of those uber rare releases that you spend a bunch of time tracking down to complete your collection.
'Magpie & Raven' sees Pyramids at their most sprawling and with moments of ultimate bombast. With piano provided by Clay Ruby (Burial Hex) as an integral part, the 25 minute plus track weaves around this motif with massive guitars and a spoken word performance that is truly epic before everything dissolves in a maelstrom of organic noise as Wraiths eviscerate the previous musical section to its very atomic particles before all comes together again and the track ends with a sense of calm conclusion.
This amazing release is presented as a limited edition one-sided clear vinyl LP in a signature AB vellum-style sleeve with artwork by noted tattoo artist Simon Erl. The multi-layered artwork can all be soon as one whole when held up to the light. Comes with an MP3 download card. Housed in heavy PVC outer sleeve.
Grab it here... while you can
