One more week until the HANGING GARDEN album “I Am Become” will be released. To feed your appetite and give you another preview of what to expect, here is the brand new video for ‘Hearthfire’ from the new album, which features a strong guest performance by Tomi Joutsen of AMORPHIS!
HANGING GARDEN’s fifth full-length album, “I Am Become”, focuses thematically on an inexorable aspect of life – as well as it’s antonym: death. The approach to the theme is personal – the feelings of loss, yearning, and cherishing the deeds and words of those no longer here. The songs contain epitaphs and obituaries in the band’s native tongue, to keep the full meaning and connotations of the words intact. The powerful voices of familiar guests vocalists from bands such as Tomi Joutsen of AMORPHIS and Niko Kalliojärvi of AMORAL can also be heard on the album, adding to its dark and compelling atmosphere. The album brings forth an array of tunes both serene and somber, and continues the bands aesthetic play of light and dark, further developing their journey of different soundscapes.
