Left Hand Solution just released their first single “First Day Of Winter” on the actual first day of winter and winter solstice: on the 21st of December 2020. The first out “First Day Of Winter” is taken off the upcoming album to be released in 2021.
Drummer and songwriter Erik Barthold about the song: ”I remember starting to write the song “First Day Of Winter” as the first snow fell in the year of 2002. Little did I imagine that it would take another 18 years for it to be fully completed! The song was finished this summer in a hot recording studio, but of course, we had to wait until the winter solstice for this release. Sorry, that we’ve kept you waiting, but here it finally is in its full winter dress.”
What made Left Hand Solution always special was their combination of hard riffs, dark melodies, and Mariana Frykman’s dark and beautiful voice. Being one of the early metal band with a female vocalist their influence has been largely overlooked and their cult following has grown quite a lot lately. And now, it’s time for a new album and a new development for the band. The new Album “Dead of Winter” is scheduled for April 16th, 2021.
