Dark Tranquillity - We Are The Void 2010
Dark Tranquillity is a Swedish melodic death metal band from Gothenburg. They are the longest-standing band from the original Gothenburg metal scene, and are one of the most integral pioneers of the melodic death metal genre of music.
We Are The Void is the ninth studio album by Swedish melodic death metal band Dark Tranquillity. It is their first album with new bassist Daniel Antonsson. The album was written almost a year prior to its recording, and is considered to be the second part to their previous album Fiction as it continued many of the latter's elements including the Drop B tuning that was largely present and the clean vocals Mikael Stanne re-introduced on that album.
On 10 February 2010, a music video was released for "Shadow In Our Blood" which was filmed in Finland. As of 19 February 2010, the entire album is available for free streaming on the band's MySpace page.
Chosen as "Album of the month Feb 2010" by German online magazine Metal 1 regarding the musical direction of the band's new material, the band previously said:
"It's a bit too early to delve into details, but the material feels diverse and fresh and covers all the facets of the Dark Tranquillity sound. Those who are familiar with our songwriting process know that we always keep re-arranging and experimenting with the material until the recording starts, and while we currently have the basic foundations for around 10 songs, many things are still open. The final result is likely to surprise ourselves as well as you people."
