We are extremely pleased to bring you the exclusive premiere of Birds of the Apocalypse, the brand new track from the upcoming album by the same name from Rotterdam, Netherlands based psychedelic doom/metal quartet GULA, out December 15th.
About The Album
The band’s sophomore album follows the footsteps of their debut in nature but expands on all fields, with the band’s signature sonics having become a fuller and more holistic experience in the composition process. Being significantly more diverse and experimental when compared to the debut – and including a broader array of synth work for an example – Birds of the Apocalypse was as customary for them, recorded live with just a few overdubs here and there. GULA’s combination of psychedelic music with doom and metal tendencies topped off with calm and atmospheric passages is a particularly organic and gripping one, and whoever finds themselves from listening to Birds of the Apocalypse, will find its hooks and textures highly enjoyable.
Taking their name from the Mesopotamian goddess of healing often portrayed with a dog by her side, GULA’s lyrical content seeks inspiration from movies, literature, and philosophy, applying further weight to the already ponderous album.
