Watch their brand new video for « Sky Burial » right now! « Warlung replaces the lysergic fog with the dry heat of their desert surroundings.

WARLUNG‘s haunting melodies and crushing riffs perfectly unite beauty and brutality, and their new song « Sky Burial » will rip you to shreds and free your soul! The Texas foursome brilliantly melds NWOBHM and proto-doom influences, modern heavy and picturesque horror themes without ever sounding dramatic or pompous. Their sense of storytelling and gift for delivering massive and invigorating riff rock anthems will win over fans of Ghost, Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats and Pentagram.

WARLUNG took the heavy rock underground by storm in 2017 with the release of their debut album « Sleepwalker ». Playing festivals such as End Hip End It Fest and opening for acts like Wo Fat and Dead Meadow, they quickly gained a cult following and high praise by both fans and critics alike. Less than a year later, they entered the studio to record their second album, which was released in February 2019. Immortal Portal hit #14 of the Doom Charts and was included to Weedian’s first artist compilation. WARLUNG continued to host various breweries and festivals like SXSW, and quickly became a fan favorite within the local rock community and abroad. Their audience grew as they opened for bands such as High Reeper, Forming the Void or King Buffalo. Their hotly anticipated third album « Optical Delusions » (2020, Heavy Psych Sounds) was hailed as « prodigious » by Metal Hammer and « texas-sized, riff-glazed doom seasoned with psychedelia and 70s prog » by Zero Tolerance Magazine.
