Master of Muppets Fittingly enough, this sounds like the haunted space between Glare of the Sun and Dead to a Dying World, with a good bit of Saturnus or Doom: VS sprinkled in for good measure. Progressive, atmospheric doom of the highest caliber, The Earth is Silent is an immersive and highly enjoyable experience, standout stuff in what's been a standout year for doom as it is. Favorite track: When The Morning Came.

meat_tornado Beautiful album of doom in the vein of Saturnus. Also explores a lot of different musical ideas. Favorite track: White Skies And Grey Lands.

about

SUN OF THE DYING is a Spanish Doom/Death Metal band, with its
roots set on 90’s music as My Dying Bride, Paradise Lost or Anathema,
and adding a more modern sound taken from Shape of Despair, Ahab or Swallow the Sun.

SUN OF THE DYING starts in 2013 as a side project between
Casuso and Lavín beside their main bands (Apocynthion and
CrystalMoors). In 2015 the band is completed and they start
recording their first album. After some changes, in 2017 Sun of
The Dying gets a stable line up that remains until today.

In april of that year 'The Roar of the Furious Sea’ is released by
the mexican label Throats Productions, recorded and mixed by
the band members and mastered by Fede Pajaro. Throats Productions
edits the album, the cover is designed by Israel Pato
and the artwork is made by Tumulus and Crafts.

During the next months they do several shows with bands like
Ocelon, ADE, Trono de Sangre, Malammär, Atrexial or Womb.
Sun of the Dying took part in the 2018 Spanish W.O.A Metal
Battle and they reached the finals, surprising with its different
approach to Doom Metal and intense live performance.

Quote:
„Spanish death/doom metallers Sun of the Dying are back with their sophomore album, The Earth Is Silent. A spiritual successor to their debut album, this record follows its footsteps in a more emotional, atmospheric, yet harder way.

In the vein of the british and nordic doom/death metal tradition, and drawing inspiration by classic mythology and the works of Dylan Thomas, H.P. Lovecraft and Cormac McCarthy, the seven songs of this release take the listener on a epic journey through despair and rage, from the thunderous skies to the abyssal depths of the ocean.

With The Earth Is Silent, Sun of the Dying have raised a monument to endings: the end of hope, of love, of life, and of the Earth itself. And in the aftermath, there is only silence.“

Track Name: A Dying Light
There was a flame somewhere dark
A dim light of hope that wished to last   
At its end it knew dark is right

The fade of existence                    
The perspective of a new dawn               

Cold fear cries silent tears             
Broken hope leaves anger thoughts

All the moments I left behind
Now come as loss and despair

The empty solitude
Reminds you that it’s gone
Rage against the dying of the light 
Just rage tearing you up inside

Shattered, gone, holed up in myself
Timeless place between flesh and bone

At the pain we find the reason
An answer to fate

The empty solitude
Reminds you that it’s gone
Rage against the dying of the light
Just rage tearing you up inside

The empty solitude
Has showed me who I am 
Rage against all I’ve lost
Just rage is what I’ve become
Track Name: A Cold Unnamed Fear
She came to me
She stood on the cliff
She looked silent and pale
Hearing the furious sea

Life is just a drop in time
The tides and the waves are forever
Death moved us away
And death brought us together
Again

She was void of emotions
Only regrets
She carried my seed
And a cold unnamed fear

Life is just a drop in time
The tides and the waves are forever
Death moved us away
And death brought us together
Again

Sad child of despair
Growing to a queen
She took her last breath
And walked into the water
She just said my name
She just said my name

And she became one with the ocean

Life is just a drop in time
The tides and the waves are forever
Death moved us away
And death brought us together
Again

She said my name
And she became one with the ocean
Track Name: Orion
The moon shows the calm of the sea
A quiet reflection of hope over me
The wet cold heals the invisible scars
That still bleed inside

The crow awaits 
For a chance to strike
Following the sun desires

By a single shot a hunter was hunted 
Losing his bright
Rising his hand he tried to achieve the sky
To join the stars

Falling to the oceans depths
Facing the roughness of the death
A water abyss of void and painless dream
Numb my soul

Mercy of a Father
Reignite a light
And let it guide the night

By a single shot a hunter was hunted 
Losing his bright
Rising his hand he tried to achieve the sky
To join the stars
Track Name: When The Morning Came
When the morning came
There was no hope
There was no joy

When the morning came
The sun was white
Behind the clouds

When the morning came
There were no smiles
No caring words

Everything was lost
When the morning came

When the morning came
Everything was cold
Everything was grey

When the morning came
We were all alone
Abandoned and stray

When the morning came
Mankind left its place
In this shattered throne

The day after the end
When the morning came

The Earth is silent
Strangely peaceful
A heavy calm
After the storm

Among the grass
The winds blow gently
The last breath of a dying world

When the morning came
The ancients took
What’s theirs by right

When the morning came
We embraced fear
To guide our steps

When the morning came
The air was strange
Water was sour

Everything was lost
The day after the end
When the morning came
Track Name: Monolith
Another day of calm and cold in this ship
waiting for a sign of mercy of our god
Meanwhile the ice bright like a silver knife

Behind the mist I suppose I see something dark
A cyclopean stone with many lights like stars

I can feel myself drowning
I’m still dreaming, I know
but i have to go

In my soul I feel the void is coming
easing my fear and clouding my mind
Through Abyss my lord is calling
with whispers about the echoes of the past

Now I can see the world around me
The clarity of knowledge
Show me the emptiness of my existence

In my soul I feel the void is coming
easing my fear and clouding my mind
Through Abyss my lord is calling
with whispers about the echoes of the past

In my soul I feel the void is coming
easing my fear and clouding my mind
Through Abyss my lord is calling
with whispers about the echoes of the past
Track Name: White Skies And Grey Lands
The rain became the shroud
That hide us from the sun
Your loss painted that winter morning
Like a picture
Of white skies and grey lands

Of white skies and grey lands

No farewell, no last words
Only the taste of the wine

As I carry your coffin
I still hear your voice

I lead the black procession
I take you to the stone
You teach me how to dance
To the tune of the vultures

If nothing stays forever
If all we love just fades away
Why should we try, why should we pray
To a deaf god of nothingness

A cold winter morning feast
Clothes of ashes, glasses of sand
Then you taught me how to dance
To the song of the vultures

If nothing stays forever
If all we love just fades away
Why should we try, why should we pray
To a deaf god of nothingness

The rain became a shroud
A picture
Of white skies and grey lands
Of white skies and grey lands
