Garland of Skulls

by Queen Elephantine



Queen Elephantine's third full length album, a long song in three parts, Garland of Skulls — kapālamālā.

“Some of the most original Stoner Metal Music out there… Masterpiece… You need your wits about you on this amazing album, as I have listened to this a few times and am still trying to get my head around it. A sign of true originality in my book… Their new release is superb. Highly recommended.” -The SludgeLord

“There comes a point when listening to a record becomes more of a religious experience than a musical one. Queen Elephantine’s 10th release is one such experience… Another strong and forceful record this from the prolifically active New Yorkers. Each listen produces new sounds that previous attempts glossed over, and ultimately this is not a piece to listen to whilst doing anything else.” -The Sleeping Shaman

“8/10. With low strung guitars and almost slow motion music – it has a force and strength all its own. As artistic as it is Heavy, this band commands that it gets and needs to have respect… My first experience with this truly unique band, left me needing and wanting more of the same.” -Doom Mantia

Track Name: Potency
Every ocean
Heaven sent me here
I am over it
Nothing gets me down anymore
White sands
Breathe through me
Track Name: Libation
Moisture running down faces
Loud and clear
Colossus rays spread the fear
Ice speaks through frozen bodies
Cracks in my mind
Track Name: Garland of Skulls
Burning eyes
Angel white teeth
