SKY BURIAL: Self-titled: CDEP

Mar 07, 2011

Taking their name from a Tibetan funeral rite of dissecting and placing a body for the birds to dismember, these guys out of Tennessee similarly offer up their own body of three tracks for dissection. Simply labeled “One,” “Two,” and “Three,” the songs blur together with melodic—almost minimalistic—guitar instrumentations riding above a festering undercurrent. Incorporating two drummers, the song structures swim from gracefully somber to a wall of guitar and black metal barks. Part doom, part metal, this five-piece band is something to keep an eye on.
