THE WEIGHT OF THE WORLD

AFTER LENGTHY LABEL UPHEAVALS, 40 WATT SUN ARE FINALLY READY TO UNLEASH THEIR BRAND NEW ALBUM ‘WIDER THAN THE SKY’ AND PATRICK WALKER IS READY TO TALK ABOUT IT TO TERRORIZER

At long last, five years after the sublime, gut-wrenchingly beautiful ‘The Inside Room’ – a record that is still very much in our usual rotation – was released, 40 Watt Sun return with its successor. After a debut that meant so much to so many people, and on top of it from a band that appears to be a logical continuation of the equally relevant Warning (whose ‘Watching From A Distance’ is just about the best doom record of this century), it could prove difficult to hit that soft spot of the heart once more, but fear not. ‘Wider Than The Sky’ is everything any 40 Watt Sun fan has dreamed it could be in these five years, and more besides. The songs feel more daring and even more vulnerable than before, while Patrick Walker’s impassioned singing is more dynamic and loose whilst retaining all its emotional weight.

About Terrorizer Magazine

It’s always a pleasure to feature Darkthrone on the cover of Terrorizer. They are a truly reliable band that not only continue to deliver utterly awesome songs, but fly the flag for the metal underground. New album ‘Artic Thunder’ doesn’t disappoint and we hope you’ll enjoy our cover feature as much as I enjoyed reading it when it landed in my inbox. September is always a time when the music industry recovers from the summer festivals and starts to look forward to closure on the year, and believe it or not, start to think about 2017 and next year’s releases. On the horizon there’s new albums from a newly reformed The Obsessed and Obituary just to whet your appetite already. Next year marks the 30th anniversary of Celtic Frost’s ‘Into The Pandemonium’, so I hope to see some kind of reissue. Noise/Tom G – if you’re reading! In the meantime, the rest of the year will see an awesome line-up at this year’s Damnation Festival in Leeds and a fuck load more releases to look forward to – including amazing albums by Venom Prison, 40 Watt Sun, Lucifer’s Chalice and The Dillinger Escape Plan, to name just a few. I’ve also just finished reading former Cro-Mags bassist Harley Flanagan’s biography which is utterly fantastic. It’s out at the end of this month, we’ll be bringing you an interview next issue...
