Limited edition 2LP in a deluxe gatefold sleeve on colored vinyl

Instrumental Doom Quartet, Clouds Taste Satanic, release their fourth album, The Glitter of Infinite Hell. This new record features 4 songs on 4 sides of vinyl clocking in at just under 75 minutes and hearkens back to the band's debut, To Sleep Beyond the Earth, which presented 1 song in 4 parts over 2 sides of vinyl. TGIH also sees the band revisiting the slower tempos of TSBE on the first 2 tracks showcasing the bands Doomier impulses which they have dubbed "the Dark Album". The second 2 tracks make up the Light Album and have faster and Stonier leanings. If it's not apparent front the title, this is a concept record referencing the 9 circles of Hell in Dante's Inferno. Although only 4 circles are titled, each son contains shades of the other 9. Likes its predecessor Dawn of the Satanic Age, TGIH was engineered and mixed by Ben Rice at Degraw Sound in Brooklyn and mastered by Alan Douches (High on Fire, Converge, Mastodon) at West West Side Music. The Gatefold cover art, Descent Into Hell", screams Hieronymus Bosch but is actually credited to "Follower of Bosch". The inner gatefold and sleeves representing Hell's connection to Space are original pieces by artist Goatess Doomwych whose work has graced numerous doom covers including the debut album by Dead Witches. All told, as Hell beckons, are you doom enough to consume?
