Finnish death metal supergroup Barren Earth, featuring current and former members of acts such as Amorphis, Moonsorrow, Swallow the Sun, and Kreator, burst onto the metal scene in 2009 with the "Our Twilight" EP, which manged to pique the interest of fans of melodic death metal and Finnish doom acts.

When the follow-up debut full-length "Curse of the Red River" came around the next year it became apparent that Barren Earth would be at the forefront of the progressive death metal scene, mixing in elements of prog rock with influences from all the member's other projects.

The time has now come for Barren Earth to prove it can keep the momentum going and continue to provide quality death metal steeped in progressive and melodic sounds with the release of the new album "The Devil's Resolve" (reviewed here).

The album isn't set to drop until March 12th/13th, but Metalunderground.com is very proud to provide you with a preview of the first three tracks off the upcoming new opus. Get a taste of the coming prog/death madness by listening to "Passing of the Crimson Shadows," "The Rains Begin," and "Vintage Warlords" in the player below.
