Five years after Abyss Masterpiece, Portuguese gothic doomsters Heavenwood have finally set a release date for their awaited and delayed new album. The Tarot Of The Bohemians is their newest creation and has been in the making for the last few years. It will finally hit stores on February 22nd through Raising Legends Records (in Portugal) and their new international label. For now, the band has shared the album cover, available below.
Portuguese dark metallers Heavenwood have parted ways with longtime guitarist Bruno Silva and have replaced him with Vítor Carvalho, Demon Dagger's axeman and guitar-virtuoso. Vítor Carvalho will make his live debut with Heavenwood next Saturday, on the 20th of April in Benavente.
Portuguese gothic combo Heavenwood have just unveiled another new demo track from their new song ''Justice'', which according to the band, will be included in their upcoming new studio album The Tarot Of The Bohemians Part I, out later this year. ''Justice'' is currently streaming at Heavenwood's official Facebook page here.
If you remember well, Portugal's own Heavenwood released their last album Abyss Masterpiece in 2011, and their next masterpiece The Tarot Of The Bohemians - Part. 1 is planned to be released this year. To spike up the interest in the new studio album, the gothic metal band is currently streaming in its entirety the new pre-production track called "Strength" and you can listen to it on the video below.
Heavenwood have released Abyss Masterpiece last year but now they unveiled a visual treat for us to enjoy. "Morning Glory Clouds (In Manus Tuas Domine)" was the chosen song and M. Webber and J. S. Watson were the architects. The clip features footage from the 1928 horror movie "The Fall of the House of Usher", based on Edgar Allan Poe's short story. You can watch it below. Abyss Masterpiece was released under Listenable Records.
"Morning Glory Clouds (In Manus Tuas Domine)", a brand new track from the Portuguese Dark-Rock/ Metal outfit Heavenwood, is available for exclusive streaming on the band's MySpace page http://www.myspace.com/heavenwood. The song comes off the band's new album, Abyss Masterpiece, which will be released on March 14 via Listenable Records and is already available for pre-orders at http://shop.listenable.net/product.php?id_product=2060. The follow-up to 2008's Redemption was produced by Ricardo Dias & Heavenwood and was mixed & mastered by Kristian "Kohle" Kohlmannslehner at Kohlekeller Studios, Germany. In related news, Heavenwoodhave announced the addition to their line-up of Paulo Chanoca (DEMON DAGGER/ DECREPIDEMIC) as new session bass-player.
Portuguese metallers Heavenwood have inked a worldwide, multi-album deal with Listenable Records (Gojira, Textures, Adagio, The Red Shore, The Order Of Apollon, Immolation, to name just a few - www.listenable.net). The band is currently mixing their fourth album, tentatively due in early 2011, with German producer Kristian " Kohle " Kohlmannslehner who has previously worked with Crematory, Agathodaimon and Benighted, among others, at Kohlekeller Studios (http://www.myspace.com/kohlekellerstudio), Germany.
Heavenwood singer Ernesto Guerra commented: "We are very excited to be able to partner-up with Listenable. They've proven all these years to be hard work, honest and dedicated people to their bands and above all, they feel, understand and believe on our music as we do, and this seems the perfect combination for achieve our goals. I am very confident that with their involvement Heavenwood will reach the next level with Abyss Masterpiece, our heavier, dark and intense album ever."
Portugese dark-rock/metal band Heavenwood has tapped Christian "Kohle" Kohlmannslehner (Crematory, Under Seige, Sieges Even, Agathodaimon, Benighted) to mix and master its fourth album titled Abyss Masterpiece in December at Kohlekeller Studios in Germany. The initial recording sessions for the CD took place at USStudios and editing at 213 Studio (Braga and Oporto, Portugal, respectively).
