Profetus To Release "As All Seasons Die"

Svart Record has announced June 13th as the international release date for "As All Seasons Die," the third album by Finnish funeral doom Profetus. The label comments:

"...awaiting, as the white cloak of winter falls down, the day's trespass begins, spring waves break free. The moving shapes of ice, swelling into the northern shores, the green temple of forests, deep into the soul of man. When old watchfires start to kindle at the lakeside, piercing a mind into fathomless distance, cascading into the loneliness of solemn summer nights. The hum of wind in the trees, brief as the days now passed, withering to an early grave. Tears fall, like cold dew on the fields, the mist escapes the autumn shores, soon to join the winters glacial embrace.

"The spirits are passing home... This is the sound of Profetus' As All Seasons Die: a noble visit to nature's chapels with four songs of honest, crushing doom metal, drawing inspiration from the down-hearted side of the Scandinavian mind and Finnish nature in all of its beauty, soulful prosperity and ponderous bleakness."

The track listing is as follows:

1. The Rebirth of Sorrow
2. A Reverie (Midsummer's Dying)
3. Dead Are Our Leaves Of Autumn
4. The Dire Womb Of Winter
