Spiral Skies return with their 7th release of psychedelic rich metal
Death Is But A Door has this haunting psychedelic rock aura. The album is not extremely heavy, but has a dark feel, which stems from the lyrics
Singer Frida Eurenius has a swagger about her singing that is addicting. She has this resemblance to Lucifers' Johanna Sadonis with inflections of Grace Slick
There is a 70s trippy vibe on this album, the production is raw that will translate flawlessly in live shows
Spiral Skies do a wonderful job at creating their own signature sound in the heavy psych genre. This could be one of the more original psychedelic metal albums to hit our rotation so far this year.

While The Devil Is Asleep
This track is flat out addicting, the chorus will stick with you. We love the contrast this song brings as it travels through soft psychedelic moments to heavy blues jam, plus her vocals are perfection in this tune.
Heart of Darkness
This song shows a bit more of the darker side of Spiral Skies. its heavy and bluesy, the rhythm at the 2:13 mark is fucking brilliant.
