Allegaeon Releases First Lyric Description/Audio Teaser in Upcoming Series
With change comes new ideas, and Elements of The Infinite is the culmination of a flurry of new ideas within Allegaeon. It is, in essence, an album with a chip on its shoulder, a point to prove, and a big step out of the shadows from its predecessor. With two new members, the band is in a very different place than they’ve ever been, and the music reflects that.
To give fans more of an insight into the album, Metal Blade has created a series of Lyric description/audio teasers for each song from Elements of the Infinite. Each brief segment will feature a clip of music from each song on the record, and a description of the track from vocalist Ezra Haynes. Today the first segment in the series covering the opening song on the album, “Threshold of Perception” is available via the band’s official facebook page and instagram account (see below).
Elements of the Infinite will be released on June 23 in the UK.
KING OF ASGARD to release new album, Karg, on the 21st of July!
Swedish Viking black metal-tinged act, King of Asgard, have announced “Karg” as the title of their third album. “Karg” will be released the 22nd of July, 2014 via Metal Blade Records. Visit metalblade.com/
Karg is the third album of King of Asgard, following Fi’mbulvintr, which was released in 2010 and …to North in 2012.
“Karg” has again been recorded with Andy LaRocque at the infamous Sonic Train Studios. Comments Jonas Albrektsson and Karl Beckman:
“After well over a year of intensive writing, we finally reached the point where everything is put into finish. When countless hours of hard work and careful consideration has been completed. This completion, being our third album which at an early stage was titled to “Karg”, in English, “Barren”. A word which later on came to form the atmosphere of the whole album and a sense that meanders through more or less all the material. It’s darker, it is harsher and more stripped down than our previous releases. More mature, precise and well thought out. A challenge both for us as well as for the observer. Lyrically, we have come closer to our own immediate surrounding and ancestral heritage, based on old legends and tales from our home region, a tribute to our fair and historical countryside. Yet again everything was recorded and mixed in Sonic Train Studios with Andy LaRocque at the helm assisted by Olof Berggren. Even in the phase of recording we used the word Karg as a guideline… and thus, it is upon thee!”
Karg track listing:
- The Runes of Hel
- The Trickster
- Highland Rebellion
- Remnant of the Past
- The Heritage Throne
- Total Destruction (Bonus Track)
