Le groupe de Death Metal Mélodique finlandais Swallow The Sun vient de publier un colossal single de 13 minutes intitulé Lumina Aurea. La piste est purement atmosphérique. Très progressive, son ambiance vient hanter l’auditeur.
Le clip accompagne le morceau à la perfection, constitué de longs plans sombres et froids. Lumina Aurea parlera énormement aux fans de Doom Metal et de musique atmosphérique, mais sûrement peu aux fans de Metal en général.
Le guitariste du groupe, Juha Raivio, a déclaré que cette composition était pour lui comme une flamme dans la nuit, une arme qui lui permet de faire face et de continuer à avancer sur son chemin de vie.
Swallow The Sun sortira son septième album studio intitulé When A Shadow Is Forced Into The Light le 25 janvier 2019 via Century Media Records.
‘Lumina Aurea’ is a song I would never want to write in my life. It is an open, bleeding black wound from the last two and half years of my life. But I had to write it out. I could not back Down from it. The way I wrote and recorded ‘Lumina Aurea’ was so rough emotionally and physically that I think I will never talk about it public. I know this road will go on forever as a part of me, but I have also made a peace with it—that I will never have peace with it. And that the life and the Journey here must still go on for a while for those of us remaining. I knew that if I would go any deeper on that road with the album as I did with ‘Lumina Aurea,’ the path would not end well. So, I quickly realized that instead I will write an album that will manifest loud and clear that after all, ‘Love is always stronger than death.’ I wanted to find that angle for ‘When A Shadow Is Forced into the Light’. This album is like a weapon for myself. A burning light, a burning torch. Victorious and proud. – Juha Raivio
