EVERGREY announce anniversary album, 15th December

EVERGREY, Sweden’s finest export of melodic metal darkness, will celebrate 30 years of mastery with their anniversary album, From Dark Discoveries to Heartless Portraits, (released 15th December 2023 via Napalm Records).

Pre-order: lnk.to/Evergrey-FDDTHP/napalmrecords

From Dark Discoveries to Heartless Portraits will be available in various formats – including an extremely limited 112-page hardcover book and CD digisleeve bundle, with rare photos, behind the scenes stories and exclusive liner notes from the band.

The album wraps up three decades of EVERGREY’s journey, carries some very special treats along with it, and cements their position as one of the most genre-defining bands of our time. From Dark Discoveries to Heartless Portraits unites EVERGREY’s past and present and paves the way for their next chapter – and an even brighter future to come.

The band state: “Make sure you get a hold off the limited edition book as we have worked intensely for months to gather all the photos and write all the stories for each of the albums, it’s an insanely cool product to have and to remember all of these years together with us! Here’s to another 30!”

In addition to live versions of recent tracks like ‘Call Out The Dark’ and ‘Where August Mourns’, the record travels down memory lane with ‘My Allied Ocean’, ‘A Touch Of Blessing’, ‘Recreation Day’ and ‘King Of Errors’. The second half of the offering contains soulful piano vocal versions of four songs from the latest full-length (‘Save Us’, ‘Call Out The Dark’, ‘Blindfolded’ and ‘Midwinter Calls’), and demo versions of the same tracks, topped by an instrumental version of ‘A Silent Arc’.

Since their very first record, 1998’s The Dark Discovery, the Swedish entity around founder, singer and guitarist Tom S. Englund – one of the most distinctive vocals in metal – has enthralled fans and critics alike with their matchless skill in merging progressive heaviness with intense melodic metal, topped by gripping lyrics that run shivers down one’s spine. To date, the band has gathered numerous worldwide chart positions with thirteen studio albums in total, and in 2022, the five-piece proved again – even after 30 years of existence – that their creativity sees no bounds with the release of the flawless A Heartless Portrait (The Orphean Testament).
