UK’s finest purveyors of Occult Rock GREEN LUNG have revealed the details of their highly-anticipated third album “This Heathen Land” that will be released on November 3rd via Nuclear Blast Records.
Alongside the announcement comes the first taste of the record, in the form of the single “Mountain Throne”, a conflux of pyrotechnic guitar work and thrilling hooks.
Vocalist Tom Templar comments, “We couldn’t be more excited to share “This Heathen Land” with the world. This album is the culmination of five years of work as a band; an odyssey into the weird and wonderful world of British folklore that melds together our myriad influences – classic Rock, Doom, NWOBHM, horror film soundtracks, the BBC Radiophonic Workshop – and fashions something out of them that is utterly our own. “Mountain Throne” was the first song we wrote for the album, and feels like a natural bridge from the old GREEN LUNG to the new. We’ve always been inspired by the story of the Pendle Witches, and such an iconic subject required an epic rallying cry of a song – we hope that we’ve done these folk heroes justice!”
