Swedish progressive metal band Evergrey will release its 12th album, “Escape Of The Phoenix”, on February 26, 2021 via AFM. The official music video for the disc’s second single, ‘Eternal Nocturnal’, can be seen below.

Written and recorded during the ongoing global covid-19 pandemic, “Escape Of The Phoenix” came to life according to plans that had been laid out in 2019. Vocalist/guitarist Tom Englund and drummer Jonas Ekdahl began composing the songs in January, creating a foundation for the album before Evergrey gathered together and arranged the songs as a group. Unlike a typical creative process, which is often interrupted by appointments, travelling and one-off shows, lockdown requirements gave the band much-needed time to work unhindered. The result is 11 songs that embody everything Evergrey fans have to expect, albeit “a more metal version of ‘The Atlantic’, with songs that are more direct,” according to Englund and producer Jacob Hansen.
