If you’re anywhere on the Eastern seaboard, right now you should be heading to our CMJ Happy Hour Listening Party, followed by the Metal Injection/Metal Sucks CMJ showcase. Aleksi from Swallow the Sun will be at the listening party, which also means that it’ll be a chance to hear music from the band’s forthcoming triple album Songs From the North I, II & III. We’ll be playing selections from all three discs tonight, as well as screening Broken Hope’s Live Disease at Brutal Assault DVD. One of the songs we’ll be featuring is a song the band just released a video for.
Taken from the second disc, “Pray For the Winds to Come” is a lush, dark track that exemplifies the acoustic nature of the second disc, which is in contrast to “Heartstrings Shattering,” a more typical-sounding track from the band that’s on the disc one. The third disc promises to be the heaviest and most extreme that the band has ever heard. Want to hear what that sounds like? Be at the Acheron in a few hours! If you get there early, first drink is on us!
