Melancholy death-doom masters SWALLOW THE SUN have released their eagerly awaited new triple full-length album, Songs from the North I, II & III.
The band also launched a brand-new video for the song “Rooms and Shadows”, taken from Songs from the North pt. I. The video was directed and produced by ex- SENTENCED and THE MAN-EATING TREE drummer Vesa Ranta.
Songs from the North I, II & III was received with massive media acclaim. Here are some first soundcheck results:
