Swallow The Sun

Swallow The Sun – New Video From Doom Metal Masters

Melancholy death-doom masters SWALLOW THE SUN have released their eagerly awaited new triple full-length album, ‘Songs from the North I, II & III’, today!

Swallow The Sun also launched a brand-new video for the song ‘Rooms and Shadows’, taken from ‘Songs from the North pt. I’. The video was directed and produced by ex- SENTENCED and THE MAN-EATING TREE drummer Vesa Ranta.

Metal Injections says that “Rooms & Shadows” combine strong harsh vocals, with melodic deep singing which breaks the song up while fusing it as a cohesive melodic body. Whilst Sputnik Music says “If there was to be an award for the most ambitious offering of the year, there is little doubt that Songs From the North would be a finalist. It is, after all, a triple LP that encompasses a sizeable breadth of melancholic tune.”

Metal Hammer UK says that Swallow The Suns most recent offering is “The perfect soundtrack for bleak winters, both real and ethereal”  whilst Kerrang describes it as “an epic journey, and one that both requires and repays immersion and patience”.

All physical formats of ‘Songs from the North I, II & III’ as well as shirt bundles can be purchased here:

In continued support of ‘Songs from the North I, II & III’, SWALLOW THE SUN will perform their signature brand of gloom, beauty, and despair live throughout Europe on headlining dates beginning later this month. They will be accompanied by fellow countrymen Wolfheart.

About The Sound of Summer

Hi, I am Alan. I live in Broadstone, Dorset with my wife, Shirley, my son, Ryan and two dogs called Bailey and Jasper. I have recently retired after working in the Armed Forces and in Public Service since 1977 so I now have a bit more time to do the things I love. Music is a huge part of my life and always has been. I have a broad taste in music and can find something to enjoy in most styles of music. I have always been attracted to music which has something to say, is outside the mainstream and is perhaps a bit rebellious. I guess my early influences were late 1970's Punk and new wave bands, especially those who came out of Northern Ireland where I grew up. I loved Stiff Little Fingers, The Undertones, Rudi, Starjets etc but also bands like The Ramones, The Clash, The Jam and so on. I like singer songwriters including Van Morrison, Springsteen, Neil Young & Bob Dylan and in recent years I have become more interested in folk and acoustic music but I also love the sort of high drive energetic Folk/Punk music delivered by bands like The Levellers, Leatherat, Ferocious Dog and many others who frequent the UK Festival scene. I have long since lost the desire to spend my holidays laying around in the sun and these days am much more likely to be found in a muddy field somewhere in the UK during the festival season.
