GALAR - Details About Upcoming Album

Dark Essence Records have today revealed details, including the artwork and track-listing, for De Gjenlevende, the upcoming album from Norwegian black-folk metallers Galar. Album was mixed and recorded at Bergen's Conclave and Earshot Studio by producer and Vulture Industries frontman Bjørnar E. Nilsen, De Gjenlevende (The Bereaved) is a follow up to 2010's Til Alle Heimsens Endar, and will be Galar's third-full length album. Artwork for the album is done by Robert Høyem of graphic designers Overhaus.
Jorge Scholz, the band’s lyricist, recently briefly explained the concept behind the album, which draws its inspiration from Pan-European folklore, ontology, and elegies. "Its five contemplative texts tell of the utter dreadfulness that haunts both the human mind and body when the season of winter holds every living thing in its grasp. Winter is the time of utter gloom, enfeeblement and inescapable death, which challenges mankind, beasts and plants equally. Yet, as long as there is life, there is hope, and eventually a new era of the Sun will bring to an end the seemingly eternal darkness of winter. With the arrival of spring hope and life will flourish once more. It is a portrayal of this cyclical process of transformation that is as old as the history of mankind itself."  Fans worried about not understanding the Norwegian lyrics need have no concerns, as the album comes with an explanatory booklet. Tracklist and cover artwork are below. Album will hit the stores on 20th October 2014. Link
