The album will officially be released on March 27 via Hell’s Hammer and pre-orders are still being taken here. Vocalist/guitarist Kareem Chehayeb offered the following comments on the record:
“The band started off as a straight up melodic death metal band,Catacombs took on a different shift. The thrash has virtually disappeared from our sound on this album and riffs have some added ‘colour’ now which was inspired by bands like Opeth, Gojira, Daylight Dies, and various jazz bands that really inspired me to start writing metal again. Catacombs also introduces occasional clean vocals, as well as more doom metal on some tracks.”

Regardless, check out the new Sigh video below. Continue reading
