Upcoming Release Update!!

We are excited to announce that the next release on Heavy Earth Records will be a split between Mares Of Diomedes and Copenhagen based purveyors of doom Dreich. The split is due to be released on vinyl, cassette and digital(date TBC)

This will be the first release from Dreich who formed recently in 2015. In the words of the band, "Dreich is an expression of the suffering of the human condition on this mortal coil. The oath was sworn and the allegiance is kept by four wretched souls brought together by forces unknown to summon: the bleak, the heavy, the horrid, the animalistic and the energy and beauty within darkness.

In sonic ritual Dreich conjure hypnotic rhythms and entrance their fiendish victims."

The tracks from Mares of Diomedes are their second instalment on Heavy Earth Records, following on from their self titled debut EP - available here - https://www.heavyearthrecords.com/shop.
