Swedish doom sensation AVATARIUM unveils the music video to the brand new single “The Starless Sleep”. The catchy track with its howling guitars and Jennie-Ann‘s raw bluesy voice shows a melodic and surprisingly uplifting side of the new album that builds a bridge between soft moments of lights, beauty and darkness, and has already been voted ‘album of the month’ in several European print magazines.
“I love all the songs on the new album and I’m very proud of what we accomplished,” states guitar wizardMarcus Jidell. “But if I had to choose a favorite track with a gun to my head, I’d pick ‘The Starless Sleep’, because that song has so much 60’s vibe in it, but still sounds like nothing I ever heard before. I think that song really has all the ingredients that makes a great AVATARIUM song. It’s dark and poetic but with a warm, organic and heavy sound. AVATARIUM never sounded better then this.”
Once again, AVATARIUM rely on beauty and darkness, heavy guitars and fragile sounds, unique female vocals and the mystic vintage blues sound from the 60s, while still staying on modern ground and trusting into the haunting soul of doom rock. Six out of the eight new tracks were forged by CANDLEMASSwizard Leif Edling, but guitar master Marcus Jidell and singer Jennie-Ann Smith also contributed to the songwriting and formed a worthy successor to The Girl With The Raven Maskthat topped multiple soundchecks in 2015 and brought them the ‘Up And Coming’-award from German Metal Hammer.
