Norwegian progressive metal band The Fallen Divine is currently working on the follow-up to previous album "The Binding Cycle" released in 2012 through Indie Recordings. Today the band has also released a lyric video for the demo version of the song "Pilgrimage."
Recorded at Strand Studio in Oslo, where the five-piece has been demoing and finalizing new material, “Pilgrimage” offers a preview of what to expect from the band’s upcoming release, tentatively scheduled for this Summer.
Guitarist Magnus Haugo comments: "The material for our next album is heading in a quite different direction than our last album, 'The Binding Cycle.' For instance, we have incorporated some clean vocals. All the songs are pretty long and the longest clocks in at about 16 minutes. We are feeling really good about this and we hope 2015 will be a good and productive year for us!" More...
