Vilnius, Lithuania based Atmospheric Sludge/Post-Metal band Cunabula has released the first single “Silent Somber Suns” taken from their upcoming debut album, “The Weight Of Sleep,” due out on August 11, 2023 via Sleaszy Rider Records/Adirondack Black Mass. Watch the video through the YouTube player below:
Cunabula hails from Vilnius, Lithuania. A dark, deep and crushing phenomenon with disturbing female growls is unlike anything local, or further, Metal bands offer. While trying to categorize Cunabula’s music one may find that stylistic boundaries are non-existent. Compositions carry Post-, Sludge, Progressive, Ambient, even Black Metal sound. And everything melts into a strange organism that breathes relentless darkness.
Cunabula started in 2016. Their live performances leave listeners in a state of fear and hypnosis. The same would apply to their upcoming new music.
The music for this release was recorded in several Lithuanian recording studios: Lapės Records (drums), Black Box Recordings (vocals), Agirdi Audio (guitar and bass). A Latvian artist, Gints Lundbergs, is responsible for mixing and mastering. His portfolio includes cooperation with, among others, Dissection, Frailty and Skyforger. The album cover was created by Nojus Petrauskas.
Date of release is scheduled for August 11, 2023. The CD will be released by Sleaszy Rider SRL, Pre-Order here. The album will also be released on vinyl via the American label Adirondack Black Mass.
