"Heaving with introspective and confessional lyrics just as heavy as its fuzzed-up riffs... the future is bright for these bruisers." - Metal Hammer
"While the high-wire act of balancing raw power with an innate sense of melodicism has proved elusive to many bands with a row of amps, stacks and pedals, South African doom metallers Acid Magus are walking that tightrope with an ease bordering on the indecent." - Classic Rock
The follow up to the 2021 debut album, Wyrd Syster.
Hope Is Heavy digs a little deeper into the creative crypt in which the Acid Magus abides and unleashes some of our most detailed work to date.
Still DIY all the way but lessons learned on our first album were applied here and the result is as stunningly beautiful as it is crushing.
This art is the culmination of like minds at a time when real art is often ignored. Tyrone Le Roux-Atterbury, our original collaborator returns with us and spared no ink in detailing the fine concept for the album. Absolutely everything you see is hand drawn!
We invite you to open your mind and slip away into the pure catharsis that is Hope Is Heavy. We hope it soothes your soul just as it has ours in having bent and knelt for its making!
