With roots firmly planted in the heavy metal traditions of the Pacific Northwest, Burial Clouds’ music bears a dim light in a dark land; an emotional response to the human experience of life in a decaying empire.
Drawing influences from doom, psychedelia, post-metal, and grunge, Burial Clouds‘ well crafted songwriting is ambitious in sonic scope. Heavy without being cliche, complex without falling into self-indulgence and epic without pretension.
Burial Clouds were originally an instrumental band, but have recently been joined on vocals by actor/musician Michael Malarkey (Vampire Diaries, Project Blue Book). With this addition the band have reached a new level of expansiveness through Malarkey’s crooning blues-esque vocals and blistering screams.
Band Members: Michael Malarkey – Vocals, Matt Mitchell – Guitar, Keys, Aaron Matthews – Guitar, Flynn Hargreaves – Bass, Scottie Foertmeyer – Drums, Percussion
