PRE-ORDERS: The Haunting Green - Natural Extinctions

Posted by Nick Skog on Wednesday, February 6, 2019 Under: The Haunting Green
We are now taking pre-orders for the 6 panel digipack of "Natural Extinctions", the debut album from The Haunting Green. Release date is scheduled for March 5 but we are expecting to ship these out about a week early! THG is a duo based in Northeastern Italy that builds on a doom metal foundation with post-metal, drone, and percussive elements to create a unique and quintessential sound. Formed in 2012, their music is constantly going in the direction of a coexistence within the aggressive vibes of extreme metal with ambient-drone and dark electronic music.

After a debut EP and collaborative split album, “Natural Extinctions”is their first full-length album which explores the inability of human beings to preserve their innocence and the bond with nature during their existence. The focus on “Natural Extinctions” is to merge extreme metal with the suggestive language of drone / ambient and ritual music, highlighting in some ways the "percussive" side of their music. This isn't an ordinary concept album but, actually, there is a hidden thread connecting the 7 tracks, relating the inevitable destiny of every human being to inhibit, suppress and lose, along his life, some of the most pure and atavistic aspects of their own soul, to adapt and live with the hostile environment that surrounds him. Adaptability on the one hand strengthens and leads to move forward, but, on the other hand, corrupts and makes us lose the most spiritual and pure side of us: the most precious.
