Hedon Cries’ latest masterwork for free

Hellenic death/doom band Hedon Cries are offering up their third opus, The End Of The Path Is Nigh, as a free download. An independent entity from formation, this four-piece do everything off their own back and plan to release the album in a physical format soon, most likely on vinyl they say. It’s stunning to hear a band going it on their own with this level of musical mastery – why they haven’t been picked up by an enormous label is honestly mind-boggling given the quality on display here. Over nine tracks, Hedon Cries unleashes a constant flurry of mournful melodies underpinned by an aggressive Swedish death metal vibe, which uplifts the dreary gothic atmosphere to create something wholly new. Like Hooded Menace with less Candlemass and a liberal dose of My Dying Bride and Anathema instead. Visit their website and check it out if that sounds like your thing, there’s absolutely no reason not to.

    Right on! It’s very melodic as far as my tastes in metal go, but I found it irresistible by the second spin.
