Swallow The Sun (Doom/Death Metal)

Message  Metalhead le Jeu 13 Jan - 23:41






Swallow The Sun est un groupe de Death/Doom Metal Mélodique finlandais formé en 2000. A chaque album, Swallow The Sun reçoit de bonne critiques, et il est le premier groupe de Doom finlandais à figurer dans les charts. La musique du groupe nous amène dans un univers glacial, mélancolique, brutal, doux, ténébreux, triste,... Les paroles sont d'un Romantisme noire et d'une poésie impressionnante. Dans cet hiver glacial, on ressent une certaine beauté. StS nous amène dans différents horizon et s'aventurent encore plus loin dans la mélancolie hivernale. Un groupe talentueux qui est destiné à devenir le leader de la scène Doom/Death.

UP! Voici la biographie officielle (en anglais) du groupe.
Swallow The Sun- Site offciel


The death/doom luminaries of Finland, Swallow the Sun, started at the turn of the millennium when guitarist Juha Raivio collected a group of friends around him.
The band's first recording, Out of this Gloomy Light demo, was recorded in January 2003 and has become a rare collectors item. This demo also brought them their first record deal with Firebox Records.

With their debut The Morning Never Came Swallow the Sun were elected newcomer of the year by Inferno Magazine and received a full 5 K review in Kerrang. The album was quoted: “One of doom metals finest moments to date”.

Ghosts of loss, the band's second full length album climbed to number 8 on the Finnish album charts. This rare occasion, along with heavy touring both in Finland and abroad, laid the groundwork for Swallow the Sun's skyrocketing success.

In September 2006 Swallow the Sun recorded Hope, which was released in January 2007, and hit position 3 on the Official Finnish Album Chart, a feat never before achieved anywhere in the world with a doom album and an achievement which “undoubtedly won't be repeated unless Swallow the Sun do it themselves”.

The 2008 release, Plague of Butterflies EP is a 35 minute long three part song of crushing gloom, beauty and despair. It is the story of an old hermit, deep woods, loneliness and the plague. The release also included the rare Out of This Gloomy Light demo that got them signed back in 2003. Never before has the band shown such polarity, ranging from demented screams of desperation to moving, heartrending melodic passages.

Plague of Butterflies was released on September 17th in Europe by Spinefarm Records where it crashed into the Number 1 spot on the Finnish charts in its first week. The EP was released in the US on September 23rd, and was followed by an extensive Finnish and American tour in early 2009.

On May 18th 2009 Swallow the Sun announced that Kai Hahto of Wintersun will be joining to fill the void left by former drummer Pasi Pasanen.

During June and July 2009 Swallow the Sun spent three weeks in Fascination Street studios in Sweden with producer Jens Bogren, recording their new full length release New Moon. The album will be released worldwide through Spinefarm records in November 2009.
