Swallow The Sun - New Album Details Revealed And Mini-Site Online


Original news, posted on 12.06.2009

Finnish death/doom metallers Swallow The Sun have revealed some new details about their upcoming album "New Moon":

"We are entering Fascination Street studios in Sweden, Orebro on June 15th to record our fifth album which will be called "New Moon". The album will be produced and mixed by Jens Bogren, who has worked with such names as Katatonia, Opeth, Paradise Lost and Amon Amarth, just to name a few. And as we announced earlier, Kai Hahto (Wintersun, ex-Rotten Sound) will be playing drums on the album. We are thrilled and looking forward to working with such professionals.

Here is the initial track listing for the album (although we reserve the right to change it if we feel like it):

01. These Woods Breathe Evil
02. Falling World
03. Sleepless Swans
04. And Heavens Cried Blood
05. New Moon
06. Lights On The Lake (Horror Pt. III)
07. Servant Of Sorrow
08. Weight Of The Dead

The album will be released in early November 2009 around the world; we'll let you know the exact dates as soon as possible."

I'm a little torn between wanting to hear this and avoiding it. Only their latest album Hope managed to get close to the hype this band is getting and I'm glad I still gave them that chance. They finally seemed to gather their ideas together in a coherent package in 2007 so it's quite probable my optimism allows me to try New Moon as well. Also there's a part of me that wants to feel proud of this successful local band so that's an extra urge for me to keep an ear on what they're doing for the world to hear.

Interesting that the album is titled the same as the big Hollywood movie that just happens to be coming out in Nov 2009. Maybe they are hoping that people will be searching online for "New Moon" merchandise and accidentally buy this album as a result.

I'm probably pretty close to being a fanboy for STS, so I'm excited. The Morning Never Came is a great album I far as I'm concerned.

They might benefit from it! But they settled on the title a while back, and to be honest its a pretty common phrase. Hard to get the perfectly Google-able album title these days!

The album cover is seriously good, I do like these etching-styled things everyone has been doing since Haggard did it! The music sounds like a slower Insomnium with vocals more like Tiamat, so developing their style a bit. Thats a good thing as Hope was a bit lacklustre in the creativity dept. Look forward to hearing it muchly.

"Vampire films used to be about vampires. Now they're just about fags." Can't remember who said that but couldn't agree more.
