Finnish melodic death/doom metallers SWALLOW THE SUN have launched a lyric video for their new track Heartstrings Shattering!

The track, taken from the upcoming trilogy of albums, Songs from the North I, II & III is the first glimpse into a new chapter for the band.

Incorporating dark menace and gradations of death, black and funeral doom, each of the three albums of Songs from the North I, II & III embodies the band’s unofficial band motto, “Gloom, Beauty & Despair”. Songs from the North I continues the typical style of SWALLOW THE SUN whereas Songs from the North II is a beautiful, acoustic foray representing the group’s ability to unplug and revel in the darkness. However, Songs from the North III is the most extreme album, a complete ride into SWALLOW THE SUN’s most horrific abyss of finely-crafted, conscience-crushing funeral doom.


Songs from the North I, II & III is set for release on November 13th via Century Media Records.
