Leucosis is a three-piece Black Metal band hailing from Santa Cruz, California. Their album "Pulling Down The Sky" is one of my favorite BM that came out this year , these guys really put a lot of their passion on the music they make. One of the things that also caught my attention was that photo on the artwork, so i did some research and found out that it really has a morbid story behind it. It tells the story of russian cosmonaut Vladimir Komarov, whose immensely disfigured remains are observed in horror and disgut by his comrades. It's a story of betrayal, fear, and...space. Komarov was one of the first Cosmonauts in space, in the time of famed Cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin, and in a freak (was it?) calculation accident his space capsule. You can gear Komarov final screams on the title song "Pulling Down The Sky". You can read more about it here. In general Leucosis "Pulling Down The Sky" is a very solid release, the blend of Black Metal with some Doom tones results in a very knife-cutting atmospheric album. If interested you can get this album by contacting the band here or email them. Recommended.
