AGATHODAIMON - Upcoming Album Art And Some Details Revealed

German symphonic/gothic/black metallers Agathodaimon will release their sixth album entitled In Darkness on 28th June through Massacre Records. The band reported that the studio work is going fine and will be done until the end of April. Album cover art, which was done by Hicham Haddaji of Strychneen Studio has just been revealed (click on picture to enlarge). Agathodaimon's only remaining founding member, guitarist and vocalist Sathonys reported: "Well, how will the new album sound like, you might ask? In a word, awesome. Yes, that’s what YOU decide in the end. But we’re sure it has a lot of killer songs, and we did step into the right direction- though it’s also a step backwards. Back to the roots, to be clear. We collectively felt that Phoenix (released in 2009) reached a point that’s as far as we can go, without denying our roots. So we summoned the spirit of the old times (of course without trying to pretend it’s 1995). What does that mean? We put focus on atmosphere and got rid of elements which did not fit to our vision. To summarize, I’d say it’s less technical, but more dense, coming rather from the heart than our heads.. sounds strange maybe, but you’ll get it once you’ll hear the first songs. Speaking of new songs- In Darkness also features "old" material, back from when our romanian vocalist Vlad was still around. But don’t worry, it’s a history lesson that won’t sound outdated. Actually, there’s a re-recording of "Dusk Of An Infinite Shade", something we actually worked on many years ago, but back then skipped the idea because it didn’t seem to match with the other material. It simply did not sound right. But now, it turned out that it was a great preparation to get in the mood and to set the sails to embark on a journey... In Darkness. First, secret pre-listening sessions did confirm that also fans of our recent albums won’t be scared away." Link
