AVATARIUM – Voices

Doom metal wizards AVATARIUM will finally release their new dark gospel titled The Fire I Long For, next week via Nuclear Blast. After teasing fans with album trailers recently, the group is proud to present the second single, ‘Voices’ today. Watch the accompanying mystical visualizer video here

Vocalist Jennie-Ann Smith states, “This piece just felt completely natural to write, in all its heaviness it came down easily. Some awkward elements, super-heavy guitar riffs, an uber-brilliant organ solo by Rickard Nilsson and some absolutely mind-blowing drums by Andreas “Habo” Johansson. It is so AVATARIUM…Close your eyes…Just listen to the music…”

Founded in 2012 by Leif Edling of CANDLEMASS, AVATARIUM soon saw the arrival of Marcus Jidell (producer CANDLEMASS) and Jennie-Ann Smith who brought an air of charisma with her soulful grace. The band has become an entity of its own and while Leif still contributed three songs for the new album, the band’s current line-up consists of Marcus and Jennie-Ann, who are accompanied on this record by organist Rickard Nilsson and new drummer Andreas ‘Habo’ Johansson (THE DOOMSDAY KINGDOM). Together, this open-minded, yet doom-laden collective draws elements of folk, jazz and psychedelic brilliance into a grandiose amalgamation that manages to maintain an almost pop-like elegance. Recorded at Studio DeepWell in Stockholm, the album was produced by Marcus Jidell, mixed by Grammy Award winner Niklas Flyckt and mastered by Svante Forsback (Rammstein).
