10,000 Years


10,000 Years surprise-release third single from upcoming new album!

In a deadly storm of stonermetal mayhem 10,000 Years third and final single from their new album “III”, “Megafauna”, sees the Albatross-crew face the perils of a valley where time’s stood still for two million years. Or has time moved backwards?
This blistering new track will be sure to tide all disciples of the riff over well until “III” is unleashed upon the world on June 24th.

“Megafauna” will be released digitally on Bandcamp and the usual streaming services, featuring new, exclusive artwork by longtime collaborators Negative Crypt Artwork.

“III”

As the crew of the “Albatross” make efforts to repair the ship and prepares to take it out into orbit in order to travel back through the rift in the space-time continuum in an attempt to seal it and restore earth to what it was, the Green King mobilizes his unholy forces to stop them from erasing the latest addition to his interdimensional imperium from existence.

Through unspeakable trials and tribulations, the remaining crew manages to narrowly escape the Green Kings wrath and finally take the “Albatross” back into space. After piloting the damaged ship out of the atmosphere and back to the point of the tear, they take it through the rift once more.

As they once again travel to suns beyond for the fate and future of humanity, they face the terrible uncertainty of oblivion and a destiny unknown…

2021 saw 10,000 Years lay waste to the underground world of heavy music with their debut full length album “II”. Now, barely a year later, they return with the conclusion to their epic trilogy.

Continuing with numbered titles, the new album is called “III” and concludes 10,000 Years conceptual exploration of mindbending sci-fi by way of absolutely facemelting stonermetal that will bring you to your knees in heavy worship.

Says bassist/vocalist Alex Risberg: ““III” feels like a continuation from what we’ve done before, a natural evolution of the sound of the band. We’ve expanded on the things we felt worked best the last time around, like the thrashy High On Fire-stuff and the more epic songstructures, all the while maintaining what this band is all about.”

Recording once again took place in the legendary Studio Sunlight with the equally legendary Tomas Skogsberg manning the controls.

The album will be released on vinyl by underground heavyweights Interstellar Smoke Records with a CD and digital coming from Death Valley Records as well as a limited edition cassette tape from Olde Magick Records.
