The official music video for the song ‘A Silent Arc’ from acclaimed Swedish dark melodic metal masters Evergrey can be seen below. The track is taken from the band’s upcoming studio album, titled “The Atlantic”, which will be released on January 25, 2019 via AFM Records. The band has worked extensively on the follow-up to 2016’s “The Storm Within” (which entered the charts on high positions in numerous countries).
Says the band: “We wanted to invite you into the world of ‘The Atlantic’ by listening to the music without a real music video. However, you can trust that those are coming as well. We have been waiting forever to give this to you, so let’s hear your thoughts!”
The cover art was created by Giannis Nakos and can be seen below.
Evergrey again teamed up with Jacob Hansen, who — just like with the band’s previous releases “The Storm Within” and 2014’s “Hymns For The Broken” — took care of mixing and mastering.
Evergrey‘s Tom S. Englund states: “Guys! This is album number 11! Isn’t that just sick?! It’s also the third album of a concept that might have reached its destination or at least one conclusion. It might also have been something that some of you saw coming or anticipated.
“We’ve fought through giant private obstacles as well as an extremely complicated break-in at our headquarters studio to bring this album to you. So, at the same time as it’s certainly not been painless or at all easy, it’s been rewarding in new ways and our creativity has been painted in colors of honesty and sincerity.
“This is our heaviest, darkest, and perhaps also our most diverse album to date. It’s everything we wanted to compose and the written words come straight from a place of transparency and never before experienced lucidity. Finally, as of yesterday, we’ve reached new shores. We can’t wait for you to share this journey with us and dive into our worlds, our depths, and the waters of ‘The Atlantic’!”
