SWALLOW THE SUN will bring us a bold, adventurous and characteristically dark triple full-length album entitled “Songs from the North I, II & III”, which will be released on November 13, 2015 via Century Media Records!
Incorporating dark menace and gradations of death, black and funeral doom, each of the three albums of “Songs from the North I, II & III” embodies the band’s unofficial band motto, “Gloom, Beauty & Despair”:
“Songs from the North I” continues in the vein of the albums before it – first-rate death-doom in the typical style of SWALLOW THE SUN.
“Songs from the North II” is a beautiful, acoustic foray representing the group’s ability to unplug and revel in the darkness.
“Songs from the North III” is the most extreme album, a complete ride into SWALLOW THE SUN’s most horrific abyss of finely-crafted, conscience-crushing funeral doom.
SWALLOW THE SUN is:
Juha Raivio - guitar
Markus Jämsen - guitar
Mikko Kotamäki - vocals
Matti Honkonen -bass
Aleksi Munter - keys
