  • Description

    “Making a triple album in this godforsaken digital and modern day and age...Many will say it’s madness. I say it is to bring worth, heart and respect back into the music and to the album format where it belongs. This should never turn into a shallow fast food industry where music is only downloaded one song at a time. These albums hold life, death, gloom, beauty and despair in their deepest levels and forms. The three chapters are different but connected, one long journey through these songs written up here in the North”, comments main songwriter and guitarist Juha Raivio on the new, bold, adventurous and characteristically dark triple full-length album of Finland’s melancholic death-doom masters SWALLOW THE SUN!

    “Songs From The North I” continues the band’s classic tradition of top class death/doom, “Songs from the North II” is a beautiful, acoustic foray representing the group’s ability to unplug and revel in darkness whereas the final “Songs from the North III” is the most extreme recording ever done by SWALLOW THE SUN offering crushing, sinister funeral doom alluding to the likes of Thergothon, Evoken or Skepticism. “It’s such a massive album,” vocalist Mikko Kotamäki says. “Definitely not the easiest piece to swallow. I hope people will appreciate the amount of work we’ve put into it after hearing it. It’s real music with real thoughts behind it. From uplifting to depressing and everything between. Like human life. No disposable shit.”
