PARADISE LOST Unveil Cover Artwork For Forthcoming Album

PARADISE LOST reveals cover artwork for new album, ‘The Plague Within

Returning with opus number fourteen, The Plague Within (set to be released June 1st in Europe, June 2nd in North America), PARADISE LOST has once again refined the chemical equation to their sonic alchemy with the kind of creative invincibility few can afford. It’s a collection of songs that will surprise even the most seasoned of fans in its ambition: a monochrome miasma of morbidly uplifting anthems and heart-aching melancholia. Theirs is a pain born of the human condition itself as our fragile minds struggle to cope in a world overrun by demons…

Produced by Jaime Gomez Arellano (GHOST, ULVER, CATHEDRAL) at London’s Orgone Studios, the frostbitten riffs thunder beneath the bittersweet euphoria of Nick’s vocals, drifting between rich melodic soars and icy snarls. It’s an organic body of work that confronts the trials and tribulations of struggling alone in darkness, but also one that treads incredibly exciting and genuinely “new” sonic ground in the process.
The cover artwork was created by the polish artist, illustrator and architect Zbigniew M. Bielak, best known in the musical realm for his record cover illustrations, which among others include meticulously handcrafted artworks of WATAIN, GHOST and ENTOMBED A.D. albums. Zbigniew comments:

“Since their late 80’s inception, through somber abrasiveness of their debut and harrowing tristesse of groundbreaking ‘Gothic’, the unparalleled icons of gloom, PARADISE LOST grew deep into all things murky and dreadful in modern music. Let alone Duncan Fergado’s artwork for their ‘Lost Paradise’ debut remains one of my fave covers, so having heard that with ‘The Plague Within’ the band harks back to days of old, was – to say the least – a thrilling incentive to pick up the commission.
It was also a rare joy to see how preliminarily calm and reflective Arcimboldian artwork, kept becoming ever darker and more sinister past each of  Nick’s and Greg’s scrutinies, to finally become what one can see on the actual cover. A portrait of hopeless decrepitude of mental illness  – which is what ‘The Plague Within’ deals with thematically – where the tormented Sisyphus struggles to push his burden back up the slippery walls of a long frozen illusion.”

IN SOLITUDE Premiere New Single

Head over to the VICE’s music destination, Noisey, to listen to a brand new track from Swedish classic heavy metal band, In Solitude. Click HERE to stream “A Buried Sun.” The band’s new album Sister is dropping in North America on 10/01 and will be available to fans digitally, on CD, and 180 gram black vinyl. Fans can check out the first single and title track “Sister” at MetalBlade.com/InSolitude.

Fans can also pick up the upcoming issue of Decibel Magazine, November issue #109-out October 3, which features In Solitude on the cover which was shot by internationally-renowned metal and rock photographer Ester Segarra in Sweden. If you aren’t already a subscriber you can check your local bookstore or order from Decibel directly at the following location.

“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 straightforward, earworm 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 8 in New York City. The tour also features support from Tribulation. Dates can be found below, as well as on facebook.com/insolitudeofficial.

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.

IN SOLITUDE Confirm Fall Tour With WATAIN

This will be In Solitude’s first North American tour since the Decibel Magazine tour in 2012, which also happened to feature Watain.

In Solitude vocalist Pelle Ahman comments:

“We are tremendously enthusiastic to announce that In Solitude are coming back to America and Canada in October. We are especially delighted to do this in the company of our great companions of Watain and Tribulation. It is our great pleasure to take part in this grand malady. We can’t wait to arrive and let it steal another sky from our eyes. See you in October.”

Watain comments:

“Starting the first full tour for ‘The Wild Hunt‘ in North America seems quite appropriate, considering how many severe experiences and sleepless nights that country has bestowed upon us while riding through its strange wilderness… A thousand years and a thousand deaths have passed since we last visited the States, so prepare yourself to face something very, very old and very, very hungry. Deformed from both victory and defeat, distorted by a constant influx of powers residing beyond the borders of this world, we now return to join forces with our ever loyal US supporters. With us we will have two acts that has the capacity of transforming the audience into one big open wound before we go on stage, ready then to receive the lethal yet illuminating venom of WATAIN.”

In Solitude’s previous album, “The World.The Flesh.The Devil stands as one of the most critically acclaimed releases of 2011. Decibel Magazine ranked the album at #4 on its top 40 extreme albums of 2011. Fans can watch the music video for “To Her Darkness” from “The World.The Flesh.The Devil” on YouTube HERE.

“It is rare to hear heavy metal music crafted with such emotion, focus, passion and sincerity” – Terrorizer
