Colin M. Gritty vocals, killer riffs, rumbling low end, and thunder in the drums. If you like you stoner metallic and catchy look no further. I dig it! Favorite track: Seeking Eden.

𝔩𝔬𝔲𝔡-𝔮𝔲𝔦𝔢𝔱-𝔩𝔬𝔲𝔡 𝓣rue veterans under multiple monikers, Sigiriya now summit a sierra overlooking the most venomous of valleys. Triumphally expansive, 'Maiden Mother Crone' bears the twin virtues of hard journey to high vantage. Suitably propulsive sonics maintain the effort, suggesting both the vastness of the vista and gainsaying of ghosts upon the trail. The cathartic solos alone are cause for plotting a skyward course, but the primo riffage and primevally pitched vocals are kindred conspirators. Favorite track: Dark Call.

about

Shine on...

Welsh mountain men and valley crawlers Sigiriya are the first to admit to their faults - and yes, they got it wrong. The darkness hadn't died. The eternal turn is undeniable. After the light of every day comes a veil of night, throwing real-world shadows into the soul of the Light Seeker.

Personal trauma, mental and physical health issues, and even new drummer Rhys Miles (who replaced Darren "TDB" Ivey before the writing of ‘Maiden...’) staring down the grim Reaper directly, have taken their toll on Sigiriya – ‘Maiden Mother Crone’ has been a tough album to harness.

Recorded with Adam Howell at UWTSD Studios in Swansea (with additional work by Matt Williams at Sunnyvale Studios), and mixed and mastered at The Bridge Studios & FX London by the lord of heaviness Richard Whittaker, it's a monolith of light at the end of the tunnel, a rage against the system, a modern myth and a call to atavism.

‘Maiden Mother Crone’ is undeniably heavier, slower and darker in places, yet in others it soars and roars higher and brighter than ever. More mature in its focus, sound and integration of lyrics and influences than previous releases, with ‘Maiden Mother Crone’, Sigiriya shine onwards through this eternally turning cosmos.
