Evergrey announce 30th Anniversary record, From Dark Discoveries to Heartless Portraits, out on December 15th via Napalm Records
Since their very first record, 1998’s The Dark Discovery, the Swedish entity around founder, singer and guitarist Tom S. Englund – one of the most distinctive vocals in metal – has enthralled fans and critics alike with their matchless skill in merging progressive heaviness with intense melodic metal topped by gripping lyrics that run shivers down one’s spine. To date, Evergrey have amassed a huge following with thirteen studio record to date, the latest being last year’s flawless A Heartless Portrait (The Orphean Testament), which showcased that the band’s creativity sees no bounds. Now, Gothenburg’s finest export of darkness are getting ready to celebrate 30 years of metal mastery with a very special treat – an anniversary record, entitled From Dark Discoveries to Heartless Portraits, which will see the light of day this December.
From Dark Discoveries to Heartless Portraits will be available in various formats, including an extremely limited 112 page hardcover book and 1CD digisleeve bundle, which contains rare photos and imagery, behind the scenes stories and exclusive liner notes from the band. It wraps up three decades of Evergrey’s journey, carries some very special treats along with it, and cements their position as one of the most genre-defining bands of our time, uniting the band’s past and present, and paving the way for their next chapter – and an even brighter future to come! On the Anniversary record, Evergrey states, “Make sure you get a hold off the limited edition book as we have worked intensely for months to gather all the photos and write all the stories for each of the albums, it’s an insanely cool product to have and to remember all of these years together with us! Here’s to another 30! “
From Dark Discoveries to Heartless Portraits will be released on December 15th via Napalm Records. Pre-orders are now available here.
