Time to get into some more melancholic autumn mood after this long hot summer with a another brand new track off HANGING GARDEN’s forthcoming album “Blackout Whiteout”.
WATCH THE TEASER FOR ‘WORDS THAT BEAR NO MEANING’ HERE:
Alexander Dietz of HEAVEN SHALL BURN, who was responsible for the mastering of “Blackout Whiteout” about the new album : “Sometimes something is sent to you to finish up that is so good that you have no words to describe. if you work on a lot of music then surely not every album you put your work on makes it to your permanent playlist…Right now I am in exactly that situation that I have the opportunity to work on material that absolutely blew my mind and is already on my ipod. this happens not every month. I can’t wait till people get a chance to hear a masterpiece by this Finnish band….check them out…”
“Blackout Whiteout” contains guest appearances by Ville Sorvali (MOONSORROW) and Fredrik Norrman (OCTOBER TIDE).
HANGING GARDEN are all about atmospheric and heavy music – no matter which musical style is necessary to create impressive contrasts that affect listeners in the innermost. Being around since 2004 and having released two albums for Spikefarm Records – “Inherit The Eden” (2004) and “Teotwawki” (2009) – the Finnish group already introduced their view on depressive and emotional disturbing music that is based on the dualism of beauty and harshness. With LIFEFORCE RECORDS debut “At Every Door” (2013) and follow-up EP “I Was A Soldier” (2013) the band discovered an even more accentuated and distinctive mix of different genres including doom influences, melodic death, post metal and post rock as well as acoustic and folk quotations.
The Finns do not follow trends and defy conventions. “Blackout Whiteout” is the fourth full length of the Finns, and follows the path of its precursors. Without noticeable velocity HANGING GARDEN portrays an introspective journey on the path of contradiction; of darkness and light, sorrow and joy that is called life.. The title already reflects an inner conflict and a putative antagonism. Following the nine tracks there are hints of optimism, but overall listeners will undergo depressive and less confident music. In addition, the importance of subtle modifications increases when it comes to the songwriting of the new album. HANGING GARDEN know how to integrate subliminal tendencies to ensnare listeners and to enable them to immerge into the graceful, yet emotional darkness of “Blackout Whiteout”.
HANGING GARDEN’s 4th album “Blackout Whiteout” is due to be released on September 25 in Europe and October 16 in North America.
