Third studio album oft he Welsh stoner rockers after Return To Earth (The Church Within Records) and Darkness Died Today (Back On Black) Beneath the soil of a Welsh valley in Swansea, Wales, a heavy metal life-force regains strength: rising from the ashes of stoner doom merchants Acrimony, Sigiriya is born.

In 2009, eight years after the demise of Acrimony, guitarist Stu O'Hara, bassist Mead, drummer Darren Ivey and vocalist Dorian Walters reconvened.

Not wanting the limitations of reforming a project long dead to them, Sigiriya brings a fresh take on their trademark monolithic heavy groove.

While Acrimony hailed from the temples of deepest space, Sigiriya come from the earthy depths, bringing hefty, tremor-inducing sonics that pay homage to the riff.

Time served in the likes of Iron Monkey, Helvis, Dukes of Nothing, Black Eye Riot, The Nine and Yeti have only added to their thick output, giving the foursome a more dynamic, meaner, leaner, earthier approach, which has developed an intense dirty sound with elements of boogie, classic rock and even crust.

Taking their name from the mystic 'throat of the lion' rock in Sri Lanka, their rumble has been moving the Black Mountains of their homeland and will soon be moving the tectonic plates of the earth.

To borrow a phrase from their former outfit: 'Bong On, Live Long_'" Artwork by Luke Oram.
