IN SOLITUDE Announce New Album, Stream Title Track

Sweden’s In Solitude have announced their third album, “Sister.” The album will be released on October 1st in North America and September 27/30 in Europe/UK. The title track from “Sister” is streaming now on metalblade.com/insolitude, where fans can also pre-order the CD, CD/T-shirt bundle, vinyl, as well as a digital copy via iTunes.

Vocalist Pelle Åhman speaks on behalf of In Solitude:

“It’s time to release our third album, and things have never felt this clear and pervasive before. This is a feeling that has permeated our whole lives during the latest year of writing and recording this album, as well as digesting and dealing with its consequences. And it has been wonderful, overwhelming and utterly devastating. Which, in the world of In Solitude, are very positive things, and exactly what was required.

“It is a very special album for us, and I am very thankful and proud of my brothers (including our great friend, and producer, Martin Konie Ehrencrona), for this is truly the most visceral music we’ve ever made, and we can’t wait for you to experience it too.

“You come without. And all falls within. There is a light in the world. There is a stone to the head.”

“Sister” was recorded at Studio Cobra in Stockholm, Sweden during March 2013. The album was produced and mixed by Martin “Konie” Ehrencrona and stands as a logical next step above and beyond its predecessor, “The World.The Flesh.The Devil.” In Solitude’s strength resides in their ability to craft dark and oppressive atmospheres within the auditory realm of classic heavy metal. “Sister” compounds this trademark sound further, beginning with the acoustic intro, “He Comes,” and saturates the record in an aura of uniqueness; see: “Lavender” and the title track.

The album concludes with an 8-minute, driving, near trance-like opus that features guest guitarist Pelle Forsberg (Watain). Additionally, Jarboe of Swans fame can be heard on “Horses in the Ground.” Moods range from Mercyful Fate-esque guitar flavors, shadows of Black Sabbath, the heavy dissonance of Swans, to straight-forward, ear worm riffs. In any case, one thing can be said for certain: their delivery is as genuine as it is impressive.

North American fans will have an opportunity to see In Solitude live this Fall. The band will be supporting Watain on their “Wild Hunt” tour beginning on October 8th in New York City. The tour also features support from Tribulation. Dates can be found below, as well as on facebook.com/insolitudeofficial.

LOCRIAN Premiere New Album & Video

Esoteric, experimental artisan’s Locrian premiere their new video for Eternal Return off of their new full-length Return To Annihilation. The video was directed by Aleks Slota and is available via Stereogum here.


Return To Annihilation is available everywhere worldwide. The entire album is currently available for streaming via their Bandcamp page here. Additionally, the band is featured on the latest episode of the Relapse Records podcast talking about the new record and selecting some of their favorite obscure tracks from the label’s catalog.

The album was recorded with Greg Norman (Pelican, Russian, Circles, Serena Maneesh) at Steve Albini’s Electrical Audio Studios in Chicago, IL and mastered by Jason Ward at Chicago Mastering Service.

A two-part concept album inspired by the band’s love for prog-rock progenitors Genesis, Yes & King Crimson, Return To Annihilation is easily the group’s most ambitious recordings to date, dubbed by Pitchfork as both “excellent” and “risky”, by Stereogum as “a corona of dream-pop and visceral shoegaze” and Outburn Magazine as “an excellent effort from one of the world’s most creative, interesting, and uncompromising bands.”

Physical CD and 2xLP orders are available via Relapse here and digital orders available via Bandcamp here.

Locrian, located in Chicago, IL and Baltimore, MD, has released over 20 recordings on an eclectic array of labels in their relatively short but prolific career. 

Additionally, the group has announced a short run of dates this June plus an appearance at Kentucky’s Boomslang Festival in September.  The shows kick off on June 27 in Montreal.

June 27     Montreal, QC        Casa Del Popolo

This is an excellent effort from one of the world’s most creative, interesting, and uncompromising bands” – Outburn

“If the wrath of heaven sounds anything like Locrian , then archangel Michael has been digging into the prog-rock bin lately” – NPR


“A corona of dream-pop and visceral shoegaze… goddamn is it good” – Stereogum

“Sliding some malicious black metal menace into the gaps created by their dreamlike, sometimes nightmarish, ambient drones… few albums prove to be quite so unsettling” – The Digital Fix
