The Obelisk is currently hosting a stream of Swallow The Sun’s “Emerald Forest and the Blackbird,” the title track off the band's upcoming new full-length. Check out the song at this location.

In commenting on the track, the band, known lyrical correlations to Twin Peaks, quoted a line from the series: “As the night wind blows, the boughs move to and fro. The rustling, themagic rustling that brings on the dark dream. The dream of suffering and pain.”

"Emerald Forest and the Blackbird" entered the official Finland charts at position No. 2 upon its European release earlier this year. Set for North American release on September 4th, 2012 via Spinefarm Records U.S., the 10-track offering was recorded during September and October 2011 by Mikko Karmila (Nightwish, Amorphis, Children Of Bodom) at Drumforest Studios in Viitasaari and Sonic Pump 2 in Helsinki, and by Hannu Honkonen at Noisework Studios in Helsinki, also in Helsinki. The effort was mixed by Hiili Hiilesmaa (Him, Apocalyptica, Amorphis, Moonspell) and mastered by Mika Jussila (Nightwish, Amorphis, Sentenced) at Finnvox Studios and includes a guest appearance by Nightwish singer Anette Olzon (on “Cathedral Walls”).

In conjunction with the "Emerald Forest and the Blackbird" street date, the Finnish death/doom collective will tour stateside this Fall supporting German metal legends Kreator and Accept. The North American Teutonic Terror Attack will commence on September 5th, 2012 in Washington D.C. and ravage its way through 23 cities throughout the U.S. and Canada. Additional support will come from Canadian death metallers Blackguard.
