Amberian Dawn Sets Release Date For New Album And Band Members Discuss Album Details

Ascendance Records has posted the following statement regarding the new album "The Clouds of Northland Thunder" from AMBERIAN DAWN:

"Ascendance is proud to announce the release date of the 29th June for the new album "The Clouds of Northland Thunder" from the Finnish metal sensation Amberian Dawn!

"The Clouds of Northland Thunder" sees the band taking a slightly more aggressive approach in terms of speed, but never forgetting the strong choruses and hook lines integral to the overall sound. The musicality is taken up another notch, with all musicians at the top of their craft. The band's live performances have proved that the band are more than able to hold their own against the biggest names in the scene, with Heidi Parviainen flawless soprano singing proving her to be amongst the most accomplished vocalists out there.

Keyboard / guitar player Tuomas Seppälä is the musical composer and vocalist Heidi Parviainen adds the finishing touch to the songs with her lyrics. Kasperi Heikkinen plays second guitar, Tommi Kuri bass and Joonas Pykälä-aho is on the drums. Emil Pohjalainen joined Amberian Dawn on guitar after this album was recorded.

This is a great album from a confident band playing at the top of their game and one sure to build on the success of the début in every respect. With shows already booked for the Sweden Rocks and Belgium's MFVF festival with much more on the way, 2009 will see the band rising ever upwards."

Much agreed. I really liked the samples off the new album; a good mix of speed along with some calming tunes, all topped with beautiful melodies. An epic package, that it is! \m/
