Tungsten Reveals New Album Details

Swedish symphonic metal quartet Tungsten return with their second album, "Tundra," which will be released on November 20th through Arising Empire Records. Celebrating the news, the band have streamed their new single "King Of Shadows," which you can check out below.

Following the success of their debut LP "We Will Rise" (September 2019), Tungsten continue their fine vein of form with "Tundra" – epic, catchy, dark metal.

The band were formed in 2016 by famed ex-Hammerfall, Manowar, Yngwie Malmsteen’s Rising Force drummer Anders Johansson with his sons Karl and Nick Johansson. Soon after Mike Andersson was added as vocalist and the band began recording We Will Rise.

Now on to "Tundra," which, in the words of Karl demonstrates that: "The diversity is still definitely there just like on the first album. But this time around to quote my dad’s boss from the 80s ‘MORE IS MORE’!"

The lyrics on "Tundra" are predominantly about time, and centred on the stories of Volfram, the guardian of time and balance, and the character who adorns the album cover. Volfram travels from a past world, filled with the glory of castles, fairies and knights, to a future desolate city, where he ends up in the middle of an icy tundra, alone.

The recording of "Tundra" started in late 2019 with drums at Der Bunker followed by bass, guitar, growls and keyboard recordings at Harm Studios. Final vocal recordings were completed in February 2020.

Tungsten enlisted famed keyboard player, and drummer Anders’ brother, Jens Johansson (Rainbow, Stratovarius) to record a solo on the track "Here Comes the Fall." This marks the first time where Anders, Jens, Nick, and Karl Johansson have all appeared on a record together. More...

Crematory Releases New Music Video

German pioneers of European gothic metal Crematory have released a heart-wrenching version of the 90s ballad "Like The Tides" along with an atmospherically arranged music video.

With the cover version of this !distain classic, Crematory showcases another aspect of their musical expertise. The accompanying audio-visual features original !distain shots leading up to a vigorous symbiosis of expressive Crematory ambience and Connie Andreszka’s vocals.

Crematory is well known for their harsh wave of industrial metal and gothic dimness – but this cover version proves that they are maintaining versatility in the latest stage of their long career.
The music video presents both their passion for music and the melodic side of Crematory's musical identity. Their latest release, Unbroken, connects all shades - on the one hand underlining the significance of strength and determination, while on the other, remaining faithful to the darker and existential roots of the scene the band was born in in the 90s. Crematory pursue their conquest towards the dark Parnassus of gothic metal finesse, their spirit unbroken ready to face the challenges of life.

Markus Jüllich, Crematory, on the new single:
"This song has been a part of my life since the nineties and symbolizes an emotionally charged ballad, which is perfectly fitting for Crematory. I would say it’s like the 2.0 version of our ballad 'Perils of the wind!'" More...
