Here is our new lyric video for "Awakening The Forest", created by Wil Henry at TMR Band Services. We're so happy with the beautiful job that Wil has done, he has captured our love of nature and lyrical themes perfectly! Thanks to Peter Keevil also at TMR, and Doom Metal Front Magazine for premiering it.
Recently Metal Wani's (India) writer Fernando Bonenfant had a chat with Alunah's Dave & Soph Day while they were on European Tour. They discuss new album "Awakening The Forest", Songwriting, Current tour and much more!
Here it is, we can finally share the video with you! Thanks to Loudwire for premiering it >>
If you need some quality psychedelic doom in your life, we suggest you look no further than merry ol’ England. The land that created Black Sabbath and Electric Wizard has also produced Alunah, who will release their third studio album, ‘Awakening the Forest,’ on Oct. 7, and we’ve got the exclusive premiere of a brand new track.
Since 2006, Alunah have trudged out doom psychedelia heavy on the groove. Led by frontwoman Soph Day, the Birmingham band is rounded off by guitarist Dave Day, bassist Dan Burchmore and drummer Jake Mason.
We’ve teamed up with the quartet to premiere the music video for ‘Heavy Bough,’ an addictive new track from ‘Awakening the Forest.’ The voice of Soph Day is hypnotic and carried along by a solid instrumental section reminiscent of classic Sabbath.
The video is captivating as well, depicting a hermit-like individual roaming through the woods searching for natural additions to a special potion. “Rhodri Thomas (director) and George D Sanderon (actor) took our vision, inspired by Soph’s lyrics and Michael Cowell’s artwork, and made the video into something magnificent,” Alunah explain. “Elvaston Castle was the perfect location, and we are extremely privileged to have been granted access to such beautiful buildings and grounds. We hope you enjoy it.” Check out the tripped-out clip for Alunah’s ‘Heavy Bough’ above! To pre-order Alunah’s third album, ‘Awakening the Forest,’ click here.

Here is the first trailer for "Heavy Bough". The video will feature Alunah and George Sanderon, and is directed/edited by Rhodri Thomas. Enjoy!
Thanks to the guys at Get Your Rock Out for the video interview at Hard Rock Hell VII, as well as the review and photos... appreciate it!
"Alunah was a little bit of an odd tonal shift for the second stage as it was trying to be moody and depressing. Doom metal always struggles on a festival stage, but there was definitely some talent involved; Dave Day was a very interesting technical guitarist, and Dave Burchmore’s bass threatened to liquefy me via sonic attack. Soph Day is a good singer with an interesting vocal style, keeping it right on the edge of being in tune. Songs like White Hoarhound are great, and they were an interesting change in pace for the day."
