Frosttide Announces New Album's Track Listing

Finland's Frosttide will release "Blood Oath" on February 27th via Noiseart Records, which will contain eight original tracks and two cover songs. The artwork and track listing are available below, and the band also comments:

"'Blood Oath' is a direct follow-up to the last album and fits into the concept of it - when recording 'Awakening' we decided to make a set of brother albums. We saved one song from 'Awakening' to be on the second record.

"So, even though this is our second record, we decided to base the lyrics on the story that occurred before 'Awakening.' Making this a prequel. The story allows the listener to know where everything originated and what led to the arrogant and greedy attitude that can be seen in the protagonist of 'Awakening.'"

1. Prologue
2. Blood Oath
3. Gates Of The Asylum
4. Fate Redefined
5. Traitor Within
6. Foreshadow
7. New Reign
8. Winds of Winter's Call
9. One Night In Bangkok (Murray Head-Cover)

Frosttide Reveals New Album Details

Frosttide's new album "Blood Oath" is going to see the light of day on February 27th, 2015 via NoiseArt Records. The label comments:

"The album follows the same air as 'Awakening' as these are both connected. But this is all taken to the next level! It is going to be aggressive, heavy, melodic, bombastic and with very deep and beautiful atmospheres."

Frosttide also had this to say: “When recording 'Awakening' we decided to make a set of brother albums. We saved one song from 'Awakening' to be on the second record. So, even though this is our second record, we decided to base the lyrics on the story that occurred before 'Awakening.' Making this a prequel. The story allows the listener to know where everything originated and what led to the arrogant and greedy attitude that can be seen in the protagonist of 'Awakening.'"
