After signing with Century Media Records earlier this year, and releasing the title track to their upcoming album, On Lonely Towers, Barren Earth has now released a lyric video for “A Shapeless Derelict.”
Said bassist Olli-Pekka Laine on the new track:
“Varying from 90’s death and doom metal to 70’s avant-garde prog rock, ‘A Shapeless Derelict’ represents Barren Earth’s roots in their purest form. Let the track’s original title, Kingtopsy, a hybrid between King Crimson and Autopsy, do the talking. Having these ingredients blended and represented in modern, but still traditional standards, ‘A Shapeless Derelict’ simply stands up to its name: Abandoned and deserted at sea – moaning alone, oddly, yet proudly!”
The new album, On Lonely Towers, comes out on March 30th in North America, and will be the Finnish band’s third full length record since their 2010 debut, Curse Of The Red River.
