Evergrey fans are probably impatient by now waiting for the follow-up to Glorious Collision (2011). Hopefully, this piece of news will make it a little bit more bearable. The unique Swedish progressive metal band is currently working on their brand new album which is planned to be released later this year via their new label, AFM Records. About time!

The band explained what they have been up to: "I am sitting here in what feels like the black heart of distorted guitars and heavy drums trying to sort what material to be chosen for the new Evergrey album that will be brought to you by our new record label AFM!

"While the music might be the most contemplated and dark pieces we have written - and while the sheer amount of music we have the pleasure to choose from is more than ever, we are super psyched and pleased to have chosen a label that believes in Evergrey! AFM are certain that we have a lot more to contribute to the world of music and we can promise you that they are right. On top of that it is about damn time that our fans get some new and fresh metal!

"While we at this moment are hindered to speak about the new members - this will be totally understandable when we announce it - they are known to some people and some might never have heard of them B U T we can tell you that they are as excited as the rest of us and have already brought in 50% of the material written so this album will be a 100% band effort! We will release 2 singles 1 complemented with a video produced by our bud Patric Ullaeus and Revolver.se.

"We will also film our every step of the recording process for you to enjoy at a continuous and steady pace on our different social media channels making this the most accessible album we have made to date. We will also arrange interviews with each and every member during the recording process together with some really cool ideas for the booklet of the CD itself - more on this soon!

"The album will be recorded in a few different studios and mixed in Denmark at Hansen studios by Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Amaranthe, Epysode, Pretty Maids, Doro and more). We are currently planning some cool release shows for different territories and honestly can't wait for YOU to hear our music, as we are thrilled, more than pleased and stoked with what we come up with! And oh, yeah, the title is also set and will be revealed soon! Watch out for A LOT more from us!"

I think their last album was a return to form. Not a masterpiece no, but I think the future can be good.

Agreed. But still not as good as Recreation Day.. or anything prior. I hope this will be closer to the old stuff. One good sign... Jacob Hansen.

Recreation Day is incomparable, it's a masterpiece

Both Torn and Glorious Collision had their moments but they both, ultimately, didn't live up to their classics. In my opinion, I think it has a lot to do with the band rushing to get the album released as they were on a 2 year schedule for awhile. I also think another reason is the song names being awful and generic - 50% of their newest songs are one generic word song titles and I can't remember how they even go. The songs from those albums that stick with me are the ones with memorable song names - "in Confidence" "When Kingdoms Fall" and "The Phantom Letters" are my favorites from these two albums. All their classic albums had quality track names - even the one word track names were a word which is unique and they heavily emphasized it in their song so it sticks with you.
