Sojourner - Share Second Single From Upcoming Album

International atmospheric black metal formation Sojourner have released a second new single, ''Fatal Frame'', from the forthcoming album Premonitions. The latter will land in stores on May 8th.

Guitarist/keyboardist Mike Lamb sates: "For as long as I've known him Emilio has always expressed the desire to write lyrics based on 'Fatal Frame 2', a game we are both huge fans of but one that has a particularly special place in his heart. While I was visiting him in Sweden earlier last year we played through the game together, and I pressed him about finally doing the "Fatal Frame" song that he had been talking about for so long. Chloe was busy writing another song from the album at the time ("The Apocalyptic Theater"), so once I got back home I jumped into it and within a few days I sent Emilio a finished song with the placeholder title "Fatal Frame". I really wanted to capture the oppressive yet strangely epic and beautiful atmosphere of game, and in the end the song just came together effortlessly. It's probably the heaviest and most technically difficult song we've written, and features a beautiful guest solo from Jostein Thomassen of Borknagar."

Vocalist Emilio Crespo comments: "While following the general theme of the album, "Fatal Frame" was actually not based on personal experience. It's a song based off of my favorite game of all time, 'Fatal Frame 2: Crimson Butterfly'. I'd been trying to write lyrics that could do the game justice for over 10 years. After writing a small portion of the lyrics, I received the finished music for it and was blown away. It was exactly what I had in mind for so many years and I was immediately inspired. The rest of the lyrics came together effortlessly. In the game there are twins that are being trapped and forced to do a ritual where one must kill the other. You follow their path as they try to avoid their destiny at all costs. I always found the story behind the game to be so riveting, I always wanted to write these lyrics."
