Avatarium – nya bandet som leds av Leif Edling, grundare och låtskrivare i Candlemass har släppt en video till Boneflower. Låten finns med på bandets självbetitlade debutalbum som släpptes den 1 november via Nuclear Blast. Övriga medlemmar Marcus Jidell (Royal Hunt, Evergrey) på gitarr, Lars Sköld (Tiamat) på trummor, Carl Westholm på keyboard och Jennie-Ann Smith på sång.
Jidell kommenterar: ”We are very proud to present the first, but not the last, Avatarium album to you.
”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 AvatariumVATARIUM.”
