Sweden’s melodeath masters In Mourning are soon to release a new album titled Afterglow. The release date is set for May 20th via Agonia Records. In anticipation, the band has revealed a new song, “The Call To Orion”, which you can now hear below.
Afterglow, the successor to The Weight Of Oceans (2012), will be the first album featuring new drummer Daniel Liljekvist (ex-Katatonia). The cover artwork was made by Kristian Wåhlin (Bathory, Tiamat, King Diamond). Total playing time is around one hour.
In Mourning commented: “The new album is called Afterglow and its story takes off from where The Weight Of Oceans ends. It’s a bit more complex than our previous albums and it has got a bit of a different sound than the older ones, a bit more alive like a band and maybe not always as studio corrected as our earlier material. However, the foundation of the music is still what we’ve always done and the key elements are pretty much the same but with some new additions and a few new twists and turns of course.”
Afterglow was recorded between November 2015 and March 2016 in Nordin Music Studios (drums) and Libra Studios (guitar, bass and vocals). Mixing and mastering duties have been handeled by Jonas Martinsson in Necrosavant Studio.
