"Cape Yawn" is the Second album by Palermo, Sicily rockers ELEVATORS TO THE GRATEFUL SKY
With "Cape Yawn" sees the band expand their sound to incorporate influences from the world of alternative rock and set themselves apart from the "stoner rock" crowd. The Italian band are sounding even hungrier than before. Heavy, psychedelic, dark and beautiful, "Cape Yawn" captures the sound of four young and diverse musicians determined to make their mark.
Formed by friends Sandro Di Girolamo (Ex-UNDEAD CREEP) and Giuseppe Ferrara – both of whom cut their teeth as the brutal (and now defunct) death metal set Omega – ELEVATORS TO THE GRATEFUL SKY pull together and package a diverse range of influences from each band member’s distinct experience. Joined by Bonham-worshipping drummer Giulio Scavuzzo and guitarist Giorgio Trombino the band is a pressure cooker filled to the brim with psychedelic metal, doom, classic and groove-laden rock.
Serving their early days in their native Palermo, it didn’t take long for their EP to find its way onto the desk of Swedish label Transubstans Records who jumped at the chance to release their debut album "Cloud Eye" in 2013. An out-and-out foray into the darkened days of early grunge and straight up heavy 70s rock and roll, fast forward to "Cape Yawn" and the band has developed even further. Complimenting and drawing on influences as diverse as DANZIG, FU MANCHU and legendary alt rockers MORPHINE (the song ‘Laura’ on "Cape Yawn" is dedicated to the band’s lead singer Mark Sandman) to galvanize their songwriting talents, ELEVATORS TO THE GRATEFUL SKY produce something entirely of their own making. It’s an album that will keep audiences guessing and leave no rock lover wanting.
"Cape Yawn" was released on 11th March 2016 on HeviSike Records.
