Over the course of two albums, Barren Earth have gained a solid reputation via their blend of death metal, prog rock and folk. Now the band have signed with Century Media. They’re just wrapping up recording their third studio album, which is scheduled to be released in the early part of this year, which will follow 2010’s Curse of the Big River and 2012’s The Devil’s Resolve. The band commented on their signing to Century Media after two albums on Peaceville:
“It’s the middle of a long, dark and cold winter here in Finland, however there’s no limit to our excitement as the future looks really bright today! We have a new set of music about to be released, having worked our asses off to create not just another album but a piece of real substance and weight in a world of cheap thrills and quickly forgotten gimmicks. We really poured our hearts and souls on this one and it’s by far our best work yet.
For this most important release in our career, it was obvious we should only be partnering with the best possible label – nothing less than the mighty Century Media. We truly feel we could not be in better hands. This is where we want to be, the stars are aligned and all the ducks are in a row – 2015 is going to be the biggest year ever for BARREN EARTH!”
