Finnish epic doom metal collective Swallow The Sun are streaming a new track from their soon to be released (in North America) album Emerald Forest and the Blackbird. The song is called “Labyrinth of London (Horror Pt. IV)” and you can find it streaming by clicking right here. Emerald Forest and the Blackbird is set for a September 4, 2012 Spinefarm Records release in North America and has already received much acclaim since it’s recent release in Europe.
Swallow The Sun has had a long running lyrical connotation with the television series Twin Peaks and this song is no exception. The band recently quoted the series when asked about the track: “Dark. Laughing. The owls were flying. Many things were blocked. Laughing. The owls were near. The dark was pressing in on her. Quiet then. Later, footsteps. One man passed by. Screams far away. Terrible, terrible. One voice.”
In support of the album Swallow The Sun will be embarking on fall North American tour with German metal legends Kreator and Accept. The tour is being called The Teutonic Terror Attack and additional support will come from Canadian death metal group Blackgaurd.
