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:
The Shocking Truth
A Scattered Me
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:
401 22 Gothenburg
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! Hall Of Sermon might also arrange a release party in Germany later on. We will let you know!
EVERGREY plays the Powermad Festival in Baltimore!
Yes, it is true! Evergrey was invited to play at the Powermad Festival and will appear on Saturday the 21st of August at 8.00 am. The festival takes place at Tall Cedars Venue. Other bands at the 3 day long festival are: Lethal, Holy Mother, Mayadome, Ice Age, Cage and tons of more. A big thank you to all the fans who made this possible!
