Usher in your weekend with the epic gloom of Swallow the Sun’s “Labyrinth of London (Horror Pt. IV)”, taken from the new full-length "Emerald Forest and the Blackbird" (reviewed here). Hear the song via Stereokiller.com at this location.

Set for North American release on September 4th, 2012 via Spinefarm Records U.S. the 10-track offering -- which entered the official Finland charts at position No. 2 upon its European release -- was recorded during September and October 2011 by Mikko Karmila (Nightwish, Amorphis, Children Of Bodom) and includes a guest appearance by Nightwish singer Anette Olzon (on “Cathedral Walls”).

In commenting on the track, the band, again referencing long-running lyrical correlations to Twin Peaks, quoted a line from the series: “Dark. Laughing. The owls were flying. Many things were blocked. Laughing. The owls were near. The dark was pressing in on her. Quiet then. Later, footsteps. One man passed by. Screams far away. Terrible, terrible. One voice.”

In conjunction with Emerald Forest and the Blackbird’s 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 metallers Blackguard.
