Finland’s death-doom luminaries, SWALLOW THE SUN, were born at the turn of the millennium when guitarist Juha Raivio gathered some friends together to start a band. With their debut, 'The Morning Never Came', the group was chosen as the newcomer of the year in Inferno Magazine, and the album received a full 5 K's review in Kerrang!, which proclaimed it as “one of doom metal’s finest moments to date. With their second full-length, 'Ghosts Of Loss', the band climbed to #8 on the Finnish album charts. This momentous occasion, together with heavy touring both in Finland and abroad, laid the groundwork for SWALLOW THE SUN's skyrocketing success. In January 2007, they released 'Hope', which impressively hit position #3 on the Finnish album charts - a feat never before achieved anywhere in the world with a doom album. The following year, the 'Plague Of Butterflies' EP landed at the #1 spot on the Finnish charts in its first week, and it was succeeded by an extensive Finnish and American tour. During summer 2009, SWALLOW THE SUN spent three weeks in Fascination Street studios in Sweden with producer Jens Bogren, recording their fourth full-length release, 'New Moon'. The album was released worldwide through Spinefarm Records in November 2009. 'Emerald Forest And The Blackbird', the band’s fifth and latest album, was released on February 1st, 2012 via Spinefarm Records and entered the official charts in the band's home country at position #2.
Jens Prueter, Head Of A&R Century Media Records Europe comments: “It’s probably no news that we love the dark side of Finland. But we are very proud to finally work with one of the darkest Finnish bands that have spread their gospel of doom for the last 15 years. I first took notice of SWALLOW THE SUN when my Century Media colleague Philipp Schulte released their debut album on vinyl on his own label Imperium Productions. Since then I’ve met them at several shows with bands like MOONSORROW, INSOMNIUM and PARADISE LOST, and became a fan of their unique mix of doom, death and despair. It’s an honor to start our direct relationship with a very special release later this year. Kippis, Cheers and Prost on the the next 15 years!” Vocalist Mikko comments: “We are really excited to be a part of the Century Media family, of a label which has done great work for years with many bands. This is also good news for all our fans because from now on our coming albums are more easily found all over the world.”
Guitarist and main songwriter Juha comments: “We are currently working our hearts out in the studio recording an album that will come out later this year. All we can tell you at this point is that this is something that has not been done many times before, and maybe for a good reason. But we could not care less about that. We want to take a stand to bring the worth and heart back to the music in these shallow times our friends. More news about this huge Opus coming soon!”
Now, SWALLOW THE SUN is working on their new, currently untitled sixth studio album, which will be unleashed winter 2015. Stay tuned for more news coming soon!
Wolfheart is a melodic death metal band from Kouvola/Myrskylä, Finland originally formed in 2013 as a solo project after founder Tuomas Saukkonen decided to disband all his then active bands, Before The Dawn, The Final Harvest, Black Sun Aeon, Routasielu and Dawn of Solace, in order to start from scratch. The debut album 'Winterborn' was released in October 11th, 2013, with Tuomas playing all the instruments. The album's release followed the release of the first single "The Hunt" and the release of the music video for the song "Routa pt.2" on the 24th of September 2013.
In the end of August 2014 Tuomas confirmed that the second album is being recorded in the studio. In October the same year the band announced the re-release of their debut album on February 3rd of next year and the title of the second album, 'Shadow World'. On June 17, 2015 it was announced that 'Shadow World' will be released in August 21th via Spinefarm Records, with the album’s lead digital single and video for the song “Aeon of Cold” being released in July 10th.
With four albums released, Italy based ADIMIRON has been able to become in a short time, one of the most promising act in the European metal scene, constantly promoting their own name through Europe, North America and Russia supporting dozens of bands in several international tours.
Sharing musical similarities with fellow European heavyweights Gojira and Textures, Adimiron’s latest album 'Timelapse' presents its atmosphere right away and holds it steady! This new, dark, sinister effort combines all of the elements that make ADIMIRON’s sound so distinctive: rhythmic spasms and asymmetric textures embedded in a progressive and dramatic scenario. Focusing on the synthesis, Timelapse reveals fascinating and obscure landscapes, with no boundaries of any kind.
