first single from the upcoming Swallow The Sun album

Finnish melancholy death-doom metal act Swallow The Sun has issued a new track titled "Upon The Water." The track comes from the band's forthcoming release, When A Shadow Is Forced Into The Light, which is set for release on January 25th, 2019. "Every word and note I wrote, I wrote for Aleah," states Juha Raivio about the release. "And about my own battle since she passed. The album title, When A Shadow Is Forced Into The Light, comes from Aleah's own words, 'When a shadow is forced into the light.' That was exactly what I needed to do. To push myself out from the shadows. I've been pretty much a hermit in the woods for two and a half years. Gathering my life to write this album. That's also why the subject is very personal and therefore hard for me to talk about. I'd rather leave it all to the music and words on When A Shadow Is Forced Into The Light to tell the story. It's all there."
