Band: Swallow The Sun
Album title: Songs From The North I, II & III
Release date: 13 November 2015
Label: Century Media Records
Swallow The Sun keep the dynamics on a high level throughout the whole album, almost all of the songs have that intensifying evolving character as the music progresses, and yes, it's all about a very picturesque gloom, beauty and despair. Swallow The Sun with this triple album, which offers more than 150 minutes of intense emotions, will most certainly appeal not only to those who are already following this band, but most likely to a large spectrum of listeners, so be it to fans of doom metal, death metal, atmospheric metal, and as well to those who like gothic metal, acoustic music, folk and post metal. Yes, Songs From The North I, II & III offers a wide array of soundscapes and is by all means their most complete work to date, a perfect soundtrack for winter days.
