Back in November I posted about Swallow The Sun‘s forthcoming album Emerald Forest And The Blackbird. I was very curious to hear how the band would sound on their new record, as I have liked some of the stuff they’ve done in the past. True, I’ve never been totally into them, they do have certain qualities that I enjoy thoroughly. Well, lucky me, the band has released a new music video for the song “Cathedral Walls” which comes off of Emerald Forest… This song features Nightwish vocalist Anette Olzon who adds her own touch to Swallow The Sun‘s sound.
Now, I’m not even going to lie, the first half of this song didn’t really catch my attention. It’s not that it was bad, it just didn’t capture me, you know? But when the track hit and those ungodly growls came in, I was taken over. This is the sound that I wanted. This is the Swallow The Sun that I know and enjoy. Anyway, check out the video below. Thanks to Terrorizer for premiering the video! Emerald Forest And The Blackbird will be released on February 13th via Spinefarm Records.
