IN MOURNING Replace EARTHSIDE For ProgPower Europe 2016
July 24, 2016, 2 years ago
After the cancellation of Earthside at ProgPower Europe 2016, a replacement has been found in Swedish doom metallers In Mourning. Go to this location for a rundown of all the bands playing the festival, including Threshold, Sadist, Textures, Chaos Divine and Subterranean Masquerade.
In Mourning released their new album, Afterglow, on May 20th. A full album stream can be found below.
The new album’s cover artwork has been prepared by Kristian Wåhlin (Bathory, Tiamat, Amorphis, Dark Tranquillity).
In Mourning commented: "The new album is called Afterglow and its story takes off from where The Weight Of Oceans ends. It’s a bit more complex than our previous albums and it has got a bit of a different sound than the older ones, a bit more alive like a band and maybe not always as studio corrected as our earlier material. However, the foundation of the music is still what we’ve always done and the key elements are pretty much the same but with some new additions and a few new twists and turns of course.”
This is the first album featuring new drummer, Daniel Liljekvist (ex-Katatonia).
Hailed by many as the heir to Opeth's melodeath throne, In Mourning was formed in the Swedish woods in the year 2000. Since then the band has evolved over the years striving to refine its sound to what it is today. April 2012 marked the release of the bands third and latest album The Weight Of Oceans, a mythology inspired conceptual story that journeys to the sea. Musically, the group blends a broad spectrum of influences into a foundation of melodic death metal. Thrusting from doomy metal-riffs, blasting drumbeats and deep growling vocals to calm breezes of clean flowing melodies and harmonies.
Afterglow was recorded between November 2015 and March 2016 in Nordin Music Studios (drums) and Libra Studios (guitar, bass and vocals). Mixing and mastering duties have been handled by Jonas Martinsson in Necrosavant Studio.
