Avatarium - Unveil New Album Details

Swedish doom metallers Avatarium are set to release their upcoming studio album, entitled The Girl With The Raven Mask, on October 23rd via Nuclear Blast. New sophomore album will contain eight brand new tracks. Official tracklist, cover artwork, and other details are available down below. Check it out!

Bassist Leif Edling is really content with the result: "Think we have created something unique this time with Avatarium. The songs are more written to be just songs and there are some really nice moments on the record that I personally love... the straight forward title track, the beautiful ''January Sea'', the riff in ''Ghostlight'' and the groove in ''Run Killer Run''. The organ and the Rhodes piano are ridiculously loud in the mix at times, even Dr. Carl agrees hehe, but i think it gives even more edge to the songs. I hope people will dig The Girl With The Raven Mask as much as I do myself, and if they don't, it's their problem. A band can't deliver more than we have done here, so it is an album close to perfection. When an album is perfect...shoot me!"

Guitarist Marcus Jidell comments as well: "Avatarium have been taking another big step with this album and I can't wait for people to hear the songs and to play them live on our tour in November. It has been a lot of work but also a great pleasure to be the producer of this album, I'm very happy with the result and I feel very proud to be a member of this powerful and talented band!"

The first album was gold, high hopes for this one.

Let's hope it's more like the old album and not the single they released after that...

"All I Want" is a very catchy song but I would rather they to continue the style of the last album.
