Full Album Stream: Avatarium: Avatarium – new album



They have not yet celebrated their first birthday and yet they are already know as Swedish doom titans: AVATARIUM, the new project led by Leif Edling, founding bassist and main songwriter for Swedish doom metal legends CANDLEMASS, have released their self-titled debut album this November the 1st, 2013 in Europe and November the 4th in the UK on Nuclear Blast Records. Visit Terrorizer here and listen to it in full before its North American release come November 26th, 2013. In addition to Edling, AVATARIUM features Marcus Jidell (ROYAL HUNT, EVERGREY) on guitar, Lars Sköld (TIAMAT) on drums, Carl Westholm (JUPITER SOCIETY, CARP TREE) on keyboards and Jennie-Ann Smith on vocals. The album's art was created by Swedish artist Erik Rovamperä. ‘Avatarium’ awaits you here and here (Nuclear Blast store EU/UK/NA), on iTunes and Amazon:

“We are very proud to present the first, but not the last, AVATARIUM album to you,” [elaborated guitarist Marcus Jidell] “When we started to demo the songs on this album, we had one thing that we thought was extremely important: we wanted to make music that was heavy, dark and poetic. Also, we had an urge to make an album with a very organic sound and no fixing and trixing in computers but just try to make great emotional music. During the whole process, we have been looking for feeling rather than trying to make everything technically perfect. I think that everything really came together the first day Jennie-Ann came in the studio and sung ‘Moonhorse’. She had everything we looked for in a singer: rock ‘n’ roll attitude, jazz and blues feel, a big and powerful voice and yet so able to be fragile and extremely tender in her interpretation of the songs. If you like heavy, dark riffs and big guitars, emotional, raw and bluesy vocals, thunderous and groovy drums, I am quite sure that you’ll like AVATARIUM.”
