ZT have hooked up with Finnish duo Desolate Realm to bring you a stream of their new self-titled album, to be released on 23 April.
Formed by members of Decaying, Chalice and Altar of Betelgeuze, Helsinki’s Desolate Realmcombine the epic grandeur of doom-metal acts like Candlemass and Solitude Aeturnus with classic heavy-metal of Savatage and Metal Church and the mighty groove of Black Sabbath.
Following a promising debut EP Unleash The Storm released in early 2020, the Finnish duo return with their first full-length album featuring eight new tracks full of epic melodies and gripping, heavy riffs. This is doom-metal that leans on old-school and classic influences so you won’t find fuzz or psychedelic textures here, instead, the epic melodies, heavy riffs and belting vocals are the driving force of this album.
If you’re a fan of epic and traditional doom-metal like Solitude Aeturnus, Grand Magus, The Gates of Slumber be sure to give Desolate Realm a listen, you won’t be disappointed.
