SWALLOW THE SUN – To Release A Triple Album via Century Media Records

Posted in Metal, metal music, Music, rock music with tags , , , , on August 23, 2015 by Metal Odyssey

Swallow The Sun - promo band photo - 2015 - #33MMMSSTO9394E

From Century Media Records:

The new Swallow the Sun release will be a triple album entitled Songs From The North I, II & III.

Main songwriter and guitarist Juha Raivio comments:
“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.

Music is holy, albums are holy. See you on the other side, friends.”
