Crypt Sermon have shared a second single off their anticipated sophomore album The Ruins of Fading Light, which is due September 13th via Dark Descent. It's called "Christ Is Dead," and it's got just about everything you want from modern, trad-style doom: soaring, melodic choruses, towering riffage, fiery solos, and an ever so slightly fresh twist on this decades-old sound. Vocalist Brooks Wilson says:

One need not believe in supernatural claims to recognize the impact that the death of Jesus Christ has had on our history. Fact or fiction, the story of sacrifice has profoundly shaped the aesthetics and material conditions of the world in it's wake. But we've grown bitter, callous to never know the world we were promised by that one sacrifice, and now we have seen countless more sacrificed in His name or in His wrath.Christ is Dead both celebrates and laments the story of sacrifice, as we unchain ourselves from a history of suffering.
