Official press release:
Portland heavy metal unit Lord Dying will release their anticipated third studio album Mysterium Tremendum worldwide on April 26th via Entertainment One (eOne).
Captured at Los Angeles’ West Valley Recording Studios in August of 2018 with engineer Mike Plotnikoff (Fear Factory, In Flames) and mastered by Howie Weinberg (Slayer, Nirvana, Pantera, Red Hot Chili Peppers), Mysterium Tremendum is a monolithic, riff-heavy concept album boasting eleven heaving tracks examining the many facets of dying and what may or may not exist in the afterlife.
An emotionally satisfying record, lyrically and musically Mysterium Tremendum‘s exploration of death goes beyond the mere longing for it in order to see what lies beyond (“Lacerated Psyche” is about the death of guitarist Chris Evans’ sister). There are many layers to it – you might even find parallels between the record’s concept and life itself. It’s a journey. And in their quest to pursue death, Lord Dying has themselves found new life.
Lord Dying’s Mysterium Tremendum will be released on CD, double LP, and digital formats. For pre-order options follow this link.
