British occult rock giants Alunah share new song “Hunt” ; new album ‘Violet Hour’ out October 11th on Heavy Psych Sounds
Birmingham’s doom rock frontrunners Alunah return with a consuming fifth album “Violet Hour” this October 11th on Heavy Psych Sounds, and share a brand new track.
“Violet Hour is a bold stride, and an album rife with character, melody, heft and impact. Alunah set a whole new high standard from which to work as they continue forward” praises The Obelisk.
This new album sees the energy of Alunah‘s dark, doom-tinged hard rock being cranked up with the arrival of guitarist Dean Ashton (Diamond Head) alongside the lush vocals of Siân Greenaway and rhythmic foundation of Dan Burchmore and Jake Mason. Recorded at the historic Welsh Foel Studio and produced by Chris Fielding (Conan, Electric Wizard, Primordial), these eight tracks display a searing combination of melodies, riffs and focused writing.

The band tells more about this new song: “During the writing process, it became clear that different dynamics were emerging. ‘Hunt’ is built on our earlier style, but becomes it’s own entity as the song unfolds. Some of us consider this a favourite to play, so it feels right to let it loose ahead of the album release.”
