Denver’s Pile of Priests have been around since 2009 and have slowly been carving out a name for themselves in the death metal arena. Their first full length Void To Enlightenment saw the band get down and dirty with their own style which traverses tech death but offered so much more than just tech and old school. And now with their second offering Pile of Priests they truly carve their own path in today’s death metal landscape with razor sharp attention to detail and nasty little hooks that set deep. This is an album that will appeal to a broad set of metal and heavy rock fans, it’s broad and diverse without ever losing its vicious edge. So, head below for all the details.
Ahead of Pile of Priests‘ release, the band took some precious time to chat with Buke about the upcoming album and how it was to work with a legend such as Dan Swanö. They also spend some time on the 70,000 Tons of Metal cruise, the Denver metal scene, not being proggy, and a whole mess of other topics. This is their conversation — jump in and take listen!
Many thanks to Pile of Priests for their time!
