Hanging Garden Signs With Lifeforce Records

Lifeforce Records has issued the following announcement about inking a deal with Finnish dark metal act Hanging Garden:

"Wait, another Finnish band on Lifeforce Records!? - Well, yeah... what should I say... it just came together, Hanging Garden could have been from any other part of the world, at the end it was the music that convinced me 300%!!

"I'm in touch with Jussi Hämäläinen (who's other band THE CHANT just recently released it's critically acclaimed Lifeforce Records debut 'A Healing Place') and Jussi forwarded me some rough mixes of their new tracks, which totally blew me away already... by the time he sent me the full album I was sold! It combines so many influences ranging from Cult Of Luna to Sisters Of Mercy, Sigur Ros to Dark Tranquillity in a such great way I simply couldn't resist!

"The idea of a band playing slow, doomy metal was born between singer Ari Nieminen and bassist Matti Reinola in 2004. Soon after, drummer Janne Jukarainen and guitarists Mikko Kolari and Saku Manninen join the band. After hard song writing and rehearsing, recordings of the first promo-CD start. The band was named Hanging Garden and the promo was finished just in time before Finnish Metal Expo in February 2006. One promo ended up in the hands of Sami from Spikefarm Records, and eventually Hanging Garden inked a deal with the label.

"In fall 2006, Hanging Garden traveled to northern Finland to record their debut album at the legendary Tico Tico Studios. In February 2007 the debut album entitled 'Inherit The Eden' was released, and receiveD great feedback & reviews around the world. Afterwards Hanging Garden played numerous gigs all over Finland.
