Hanging Garden - New Album Details, Teaser Revealed

Lifeforce Records revealed 28th January, 2013 as the release date of the new 3rd full-length album, At Every Door, by Finnish death doom metal band Hanging Garden. Album artwork, which can be seen below, was done by Kalle Pyyhtinen (Utudesign). You can also check the album teaser below the artwork.

The band about the new album: "The silence is over. Hanging Garden are back with their 3rd studio album At Every Door, which is the band's most ambitious work so far. Musically the album has much more variety than the previous two, combining influences from Cult Of Luna all the way to Sigur Rós. When it comes to lyrical themes, Hanging Garden has always been about dystopic visions of the ouroborean fate that quite likely awaits man. Before, Matti Reinola was mostly responsible for the lyrics, but on this album they were mostly done by Toni. As the music, the lyrical atmosphere is likewise quite sombre, with a few glimpses of lighter tones. A great influence for myself came from a lengthy trip to the Far East, and visiting some sites that have once witnessed great destruction and human suffering. Thus, intertextuality is present here, but I'll leave it for the listener to discover."

Vocalist Toni Toivonen commented: "Continuing the lyrical themes that have been prevalent on the first two albums came quite naturally for me. This album concentrates on different stories, protagonists and viewpoints of what might come after, should our future take a turn for the worse and end in cataclysmic consequences that spring from our actions."
