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”.
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.
