Swedish Melodic Death Metal pioneers Dark tranquillity has completed work on their highly anticipated new album, "Fiction", set for an April 2007 release.

The album was mixed by Tue Madsen (Himsa, The Haunted) and encompasses all of the elements on which the band built their career: thought-provoking lyrics, shredding guitar work, captivating melodies and sheer brutality.

"Fiction" contains the following numbers:

01. Nothing To No One
02. The Lesser Faith
03. Terminus (Where Death Is Most Alive)
04. Blind At Heart
05. Icipher
06. Inside The Particle Storm
07. Empty Me
08. Misery's Crown
09. Focus Shift [Listen to "Focus shift" on DT MySpace page by clicking here]
10. The Mundane And The Magic

11. Japanese bonus track: A Closer End
12. Instrumental Australian bonus track: Winter Triangle

Niklas Sundin (guitars) shares his thoughts on the new album: "Tue Madsen did a fantastic job with the sound, and the result is diverse and exciting enough to satisfy even the most critical of listeners. The 10 songs are extremely varied and showcase all facets of the D.T. experience while breaking new ground as well as reviving some elements that haven't been featured in D.T. songs since the early years. At the moment, we're putting the finishing touches to the packaging as well as preparing for the recording of the 'Focus Shift' and 'Misery's Crown' promo videos. Directing is once again Roger Johansson, who worked with us on the videos for 'Character'."

In late March 2007, Dark Tranquillity kick off the touring cycle for Fiction with a massive co-headlining U.S. run with The Haunted and Into Eternity followed by European summer festivals and a full length tour in autumn.

Allrighty, thats some good news for today, i hope it'l be better that Character

At least they didn't use the tentative song title 'InsignifiCunt'. It's not very DT. Focus Shift is, though, and I look forward to this album...Dark Tranquillity are tied with Iron Maiden for not releasing a bad album so far (although Projector got a bit boring sometimes), and I would hate for them to spoil the record. Here's hoping for an Irish date!

only have "Character", and I like it a lot. this track sounded about as good - so I will keep my eyes and ears peeled for the new album.

That song disappointed me, I thought they'd move on from the Character sound, but obviously not.

Oh man this along with Swallow the Sun pretty much tells you my top two of '07. I can't WAIT!
~Nagash~ - 02.02.2007 at 11:15  
New album, can't wait

Well, Dark Tranquillity seem to maintain a similar sound every 3 albums, I don't know why, but that's basically how I always looked at their discography. Skydancer+The Gallery+The Mind's Eye, Projector+Haven+Damage Done, Character+Fiction+something else...

Anyway, I liked the song. Hope to love it when I hear it with better quality and with the album in my hands.

I think there's also a live video with another new song lower, but I haven't seen it yet.
