Yellow Eyes‘ Immersion Trench Reverie was one of 2017’s finest black metal albums, creating a cold-yet-thrilling atmosphere that left the listener feeling a sense of adventure. The same can be said of the band’s new album, Rare Field Ceiling. Set for a June release on Gilead Media, Yellow Eyes once again incorporate Siberian field recordings and unorthodox sounds into the album, like on first song “No Dust.”
“Will [Skarstad, guitar] came back from another trip to Siberia a few weeks before we went into the studio, and he brought home a new series of field recordings that became vital to the shape of the album. You’ll hear a fragment of that in this track, as well as a plucked zither-type instrument made by our bassist, Alex [DeMaria].”
Listen to “No Dust” below; Rare Field Ceiling is available for pre-order before its June 28 release.
