Chrome Ghost House of Falling Ash

Album Overview

House of Falling Ash shows Chrome Ghost expanding upon their signature post-doom style. This album seems to bring out the beauty that doom can possess. These six tracks are atmospheric and dense resulting in a calming heaviness. It's a heartfelt heavy album that takes chances and delivers in a big way.


The Music

The sprawling doom will have you drifting into their atmospheric world. Mesmerizing fuzz along with beautiful psychedelic buildups create a unique listening experience for doom fans.


The Vocals

The vocals contain wonderful light-toned harmonies that work perfectly against the music. They are almost operatic and soothing at times. The occasional sludge heavy vocals are thrown in just enough for welcome variety.


Album Art

The ominous cover artwork by Dillan Samuelson will lure you in. If you don't know the band, the painting suggests the album will be in the heavy realm.
