After their debut full-length album, ‘Puritan Masochism’, took the entire doom and heavy metal scene by storm upon its release two years ago…

March 11, 2022, will see critically acclaimed Danish blackened death-doom outfit KONVENT return with a sophomore offering that doubles down on the band’s songwriting talent and brutal, heavy sound!

The sonic evolution of KONVENT over the course of just two years is immediately evident on Call Down The Sun, surprising with new elements at every turn.

Undoubtedly inspired by recent dark times, the ongoing pandemic, and the cancellation of live performances, the new album sees the Copenhagen-based band more pissed off, fast-paced, and pitch-black throughout.

Rikke Emilie List’s guttural, sublime growls and fierce screams perfectly integrate with a heavy as hell wall of blackened death and funeral doom metal riffs from guitarist Sara Helena Nørregaard, backed by a thick, profound rhythm section provided by bassist Heidi Withington Brink and drummer Julie Simonsen.

Recorded and mixed by Lasse Ballade at Ballade Studios, Copenhagen, and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege Studio, the new album’s thunderous apocalyptic sound is impossible to escape.
