Comments Downfall Of Gaia:
"The concept album "Suffocating In The Swarm Of Cranes" is telling a story about a person who falls victim to his thoughts and becomes consumed by the pressures of the outside world. Suffering from insomnia, the day by day routine and the security that things are completely out of control nowadays, all of this puts so much pressure on him that he is slowly losing his mind. It's a huge story about a person and the sickness, his state of mind and how his psychological conscience develops. This story is representative for a more and more fast moving time such as today where it's way too easy to lose control and to get buried by the growing weights on our own backs. Compared to our last releases, we've got the most mixed style on the new album and it has a lot of dynamic. It's more aggressive than the other stuff. It still has influences from sludge, black metal, doom, hardcore or post rock parts. It's a wide range of music which makes all of us feel really comfortable!"

"DOWNFALL OF GAIA is the soundtrack to a volcanic eruption! Eerily beautiful like a flow of fiery lava and black ash - an ominous, atmospheric maelstrom of Neurosis and Wolves In The Throne Room."
"Hailing from Germany, these folks really know how to push the limits of a song and drive it in all emotions and musical dynamics!" cvltnation.com
"Downfall of Gaia traverse more harrowing emotion than many bands do in their entire discographies. Both intensely atmospheric and relentlessly hard-hitting, the band takes hardcore fundamentals and pushes them to emotional extremes, flickering between fragility and ferocity". SputnikMusic.com
Watch out for 'Suffocating In The Swarm Of Cranes' to be released October, 8th via Metal Blade Records in the UK!
