Outer Gods – Ascend Unto The Seventh Throne artwork cover by Tobias Holmbeck

The 18th drownload is out now. Ascend Unto The Seventh Throne – A heroic and intense foray into dark occult drone music. Each track blends guitars and field recordings with synths and effects to make a strong case for the end justifying the means in the name of atmosphere and sound pressure. Created by an anonymous occult drone doom metal duo located in Atlanta, Georgia.

Original artwork by Tobias Holmbeck and mastered by Danny Kreutzfeldt.

Soon: Outer Gods on Drowning


Next drownload will be released early next month. It will feature a full length by American drone doom band Outer Gods.

This anonymous Lovecraftian duo makes occult soundscape-based metal with emphasis on extreme darkness and catharsis. Partly by maximized usage of guitars and vocals and partly by the inclusion of samples and technological enhancement of sound pressure.

Outer Gods put out their first demo in 2012 but several releases have been put out since. The duo is located in Atlanta, Georgia and consists of The Wrathe and The Flail. The Wrathe also records solo as Sareth Den.

The title of the forthcoming release is “Ascend Unto The Seventh Throne”. It will be the 18th drownload released by Drowning and feature original artwork by Tobias Holmbeck. It is mastered by Danny Kreutzfeldt.

Bitter Tree is the acoustic drone and post-doom metal solo project of William Patton – a rather young multi-instrumentalist who operates out of Ottawa. His work with Bitter Tree has a distinct timeless sound to it but is also vibrant, creative and evocative.

All Drowning releases are free drone & doom metal downloads known as drownloads.
