Atala Reveal New Track “Death’s Dark Tomb”

Twentynine Palms, CA-based sludge/doom metal group Atala recently announced the upcoming release of their full-length concept album, Labyrinth of Ashmedai, out January 26, 2018 via Salt of the Earth Records.

Today Atala debut a brand new song, entitled “Death’s Dark Tomb” – a track directly tied into the album’s demonic concept. The slow and low, sauntering crusher can be heard now below.

The concept of Labyrinth of Ashmedai is inspired by Asmodeus, or “Ashmedai”, the biblical “king of demons”. Conjuring grit-laced sludge inspired by their barren and often oppressive desert backdrop, Atala grips the listener with reflective, crushing doom atmospheres dripping with stoner rock and experimental influences to boot.
