On 1 February 2000 a new Record Label will see daylight, DVS Records. This new label will especially concentrate on progressive & power metal bands, to be started with the debut album of Norwegian band Sonic Debris, entitled "Velvet Thorns". The people behind DVS records are René Janssen (known for his work for Dutch Progressive Rock Page), Erik and Nancy van Geel (webmasters of the Ayreon website) and their Swedish friend Mattias Norén (already a wellknown cover artist in the progscene). These are the same people who organized the succesfull first edition of ProgPower (together with Forever Times' guitarist Martijn Balsters). For more information about  DVS Records check out, this website will officially be opened on 1 February 2000.

A Masterpiece in the Progressive/Power Metal Genre!!

EVERGREY’S new cd "SOLITUDE*DOMINANCE*TRAGEDY" is ready for release! Did you think that their debut "The Dark Discovery" was an incredibly good album? Then you’re right but this new one is even better!! Everything has improved! The PRODUCTION - a much richer and fatter, more open sound, The SINGING- Tom had never sung when he did the vocals for "The Dark..." (and still the singing got much appreciation and great reviews) now he sings with immense conviction and emotion, The PLAYING- the guys have rehearsed like hell before the recording, and of course The SONGS- maybe a bit more easy to get into, yet more complex, but still with that very special EVERGREY feel!

Apart from the female voices and keys, this time the band has also used a 6-string violin and a harp! (For the first time in Metal?) Listen to the ballad "Words Means Nothing!

Once again Andy La Roque (of King Diamond fame) has produced.

Here is the complete song list:

Solitude Within


The Shocking Truth

A Scattered Me

She Speaks….

When Darkness Falls

Words Mean Nothing


The Corey Curse

The total playing time is 43:18

This time the famous Kristian "Necrolord" Wåhlin has made the cover painting.

The cd comes with a 16 page full color booklet including lots of pictures and of course the lyrics.

Limited edition: The first 1000 copies come with a specially designed slipcase!

Release dates: In Scandinavia on the 13th of September (through Border Music).

In the rest of Europe late October (through Hall Of Sermon). Yes Evergrey is licensed to Hall of Sermon for the whole world except Scandinavia, the US and Japan. We feel Hall Of Sermon, who works with Lacrimosa, Love Like Blood and Dreams of Sanity is the right company to make Evergrey reach a big audience and get the fame they deserve!!!

In the USA probably late September (through Necropolis Records).

If you can’t wait until the official release dates, or if you want the limited edition, you can always buy the cd directly from Black Sun/GNW. Just put $16 well hidden in an envelope and send to:

GNW Records

Box 127

401 22 Gothenburg


Release party

There will be a release party for the new cd on August 30 at 8.00 am. at Trägårn in Gothenburg. Free cider, Jameson whiskey and snacks. The theme of this party will be Medieval, with music, jugglers and jesters. So put on your medieval clothes (if you got any) and feel welcome to join us!
