The Skinny: With the December 2nd release of their self-titled sophomore effort less than two months away, White Arms of Athena have unveiled the new song “Heavy Sleep,” the first piece of new music from the Texas-based, prog-infused quintet since their 2011 debut Astrodrama.
Recorded and mixed with Kurt Ballou (Every Time I Die, High on Fire, Kvelertak) alongside engineer/co-producer Travis Kammeyer (Storm of Light, Generation of Vipers) while being mastered by Alan Douches (Baroness, The Dillinger Escape Plan), the album consists of eight tracks showcasing the group’s “polished chops” and “compostional sensibility” (Decibel Magazine).
