Finnish melancholy death-doom metal band SWALLOW THE SUN will release new album “When A Shadow Is Forced Into The Light” on January 25th, 2019 through Century Media Records, and announced that Jaani Peuhu and Juho Räihä are now official members.
Tomorrow the band will release 14-minutes epic single track called “Lumina Aurea”:
Lumina Aurea (instrumental version)
Fueled by personal loss (the album title has its origins in Trees of Eternity's “Broken Mirror”) and powered by the will to continue, “When A Shadow Is Forced Into The Light” showcases the group’s ability to maintain its signature sound while expanding upon horizons and diving deeper into the crevasse of doom-death metal. Even though the single and the album are conceptually connected, they are musically completely different. While “Lumina Aurea” - featuring Wardruna’s Einar Selvik and The Foreshadowing’s Marco I. Benevento - marks the band’s darkest and most sinister piece of music the band has ever released, “When A Shadow Is Forced Into The Light” follows a more positive approach and continues in the vein of previous albums – first-rate death-doom in the typical style of SWALLOW THE SUN.
When A Shadow Is Forced Into The Light Track List:
The Crimson Crown
Upon The Water
