OCTOBER FALLS: Trailer For 'The Plague Of A Coming Age' Album
February 14, 2013
Helsinki, Finland-based metallers OCTOBER FALLS will release their fourth album, "The Plague Of A Coming Age", on March 15 on CD and vinyl via Debemur Morti Productions. According to a press release, the CD sees "the band continu[ing] to explore its exquisitely sonorous world, deeply melancholic, subtly aggressive and always divinely melodic." Once again, Mikko Lehto gathered gifted musicians around him for the recording: Marko Tarvonen (MOONSORROW) on drums and Sami Hinkka (ENSIFERUM) on bass. A very special guest contributed clean vocals on two songs: Tomi Joutsen (AMORPHIS). The visual art was imagined and painted by talented Argentinian artist Santiago Caruso.
"The Plague Of A Coming Age" track listing:
01. At the Edge Of An Empty Horizon 02. Bloodlines 03. The Verge Of Oblivion 04. Snakes Of The Old World 05. The Plague Of A Coming Age 06. Mouth Of A Nation's Harlots 07. Boiling Heart Of The North 08. The Weight Of The Fallen 09. Below The Soils
A trailer for the CD can be seen below. Also available is an audio stream of the song "Snakes Of The Old World".
OCTOBER FALLS' current musical style is described in a press release as "a mixture of atmospheric acoustic music and harsher black metal-oriented material and could be compared to early acoustic ULVER, DRUDKH and PRIMORDIAL blended together with a personal touch and strong melodies. Still, the early acoustic side has not been completely abandoned; there have been occasional acoustic releases through the years and there will also be similar releases again at some point on the horizon."
