Swallow The Sun to release new triple album

Official press release: Melancholy death-doom metal masters Swallow The Sun have completed their massive recording session. The Finnish sextet's last album, Emerald Forest And The Blackbird, was released in winter 2012; come November 2015, the long wait between recordings will finally be over. The new Swallow The Sun release will be a triple album entitled Songs From The North I, II & III. Main songwriter and guitarist Juha Raivio comments on the triple album concept: "Making a triple album in this godforsaken digital and modern day and age...Many will say it's madness. I say it is to bring worth, heart and respect back into the music and to the album format where it belongs. This should never turn into a shallow fast food industry where music is only downloaded one song at a time. "These albums hold life, death, gloom, beauty and despair in their deepest levels and forms. The three chapters are different but connected, one long journey through these songs written up here in the North. "Music is holy, albums are holy. See you on the other side friends."
