The official lyric video for ‘My Allied Ocean, a new song from Swedish metallers Evergrey, can be seen below. The track is taken from Evergrey‘s new album, “The Storm Within”, which was released on September 9 via AFM Records.

“My Allied Ocean” is one of Evergrey‘s most aggressive songs to date, the song can be streamed below.

While this may come off as music industry lip service in honor of the quintet, anyone who has followed Evergrey will find it impossible not to become completely enthralled by the music on “The Storm Within” within the space of the first listen. The band’s trademark progressive, dark and melancholic elements are as strong as ever, the album ranks as one of the most progressive record they’ve created in terms of performance, but Evergrey managed to put it in a package that is more accessible and direct compared to any of their nine previous outings. Frontman/founder Tom S. Englund credits Evergrey‘s learning-by-doing over the past two decades for the feel of “The Storm Within”, in particular their all-important “Hymns For The Broken” record from 2014, which saw a revitalized Evergrey lineup return with a new energy.

Evergrey-2016_43d‘In Orbit’, the new video from Swedish metallers Evergrey, can be seen below. The clip, which features a guest appearance by Nightwish vocalist Floor Jansen, was directed by Patric Ullaeus of Revolver Film Company, who has previously worked with Dimmu Borgir, Lacuna Coil, In Flames, Sonic Syndicate and Kamelot, among others.

‘In Orbit’ is taken from Evergrey‘s new album, “The Storm Within”, which was released on September 9 via AFM Records.

“That was actually my wife (Carina Englund) thinking for me,” Evergrey frontman/founder Tom S. Englund says of Jansen‘s involvement. “Floor is a personal friend and major Evergrey fan, so it was over a glass of wine between her and my wife, who asked her if she wanted to do the song. ‘In Orbit’ is a powerhouse of a song and it would be easy to make it the first single, but it’s not the first impression we want to make. That said, it would be stupid not to release it as a single, and if we could get Floor to do the video, that would be a home run.” Continue reading »

Says the band: “‘The Impossible’ is the third of a series of videos we have shot for ‘The Storm Within’ album. Working very closely with Patric Ullaeus and Revolver Film Company, our aim was to recreate the eerie and desolate sense we had while writing the songs for this — the tenth Evergrey album. One could say this is our first real attempt at inviting everyone into the cinematic world where we have been in mind and thought throughout this year while writing. We think the imagery speaks for itself. This is just the beginning. The storm is coming.” Continue reading »
