CLOAK commented: "Our opening track 'To Venomous Depths/Where No Light Shines' kicks off the album with explosive energy. This song was the last composition that we finished during the writing process and immediately upon completion, we entered the studio. It encompasses our journey together since the birth of this band. From the writing development to our spiritual evolution, it stands as our mission statement. Let this be the doorway from which the dark energies that birthed CLOAK now beckon you to join us in the dance of death and rebirth!"

Atlanta, Georgia in the Deep South of the USA is probably not among the cities named as first suspects for a black metal influenced rock band to emerge. Yet there at the crossing of two old American railroad lines, CLOAK were conceived in the year 2013.

Their debut full-length, 'To Venomous Depths' is simply a perfect amalgamation of Nordic black metal with catchy hooks and melodic rock. And while the Americans are not claiming to be reinventing the wheel, their outstanding song-writing is catapulting this album to the top.

CLOAK have named DISSECTION, DEEP PURPLE, and FIELDS OF THE NEPHILIM as main influences, but their harsh yet groove-fuelled sound has invited critics to draw comparisons with such acts as TRIBULATION, WATAIN, and YOUNG AND IN THE WAY.

After spending two years in the rehearsal room carefully preparing their material, CLOAK released a first sign of life in the shape of 'Demo 2015', which created an audible buzz in the US underground.

A two-track, self-titled EP followed in 2016, gaining the Americans worldwide attention and critical acclaim. In their short time of existence, CLOAK have already shared stages with renowned acts such as WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM, WINDHAND, INTER ARMA, SATAN, and TAAKE.

It will not take CLOAK long to capture your interest, but with each new spin 'To Venomous Depths' will reveal new details that make their discovery worthwhile. There are no fillers on this debut album, just hits. Let's rock this cool darkness!
