DARK THE SUNS: New Album Title Announced

Jyväskylä, Finland-based melodic metal band DARK THE SUNS has set "Sleepwalking In A Nightmare" as the title of its third album, due this summer via Firebox Records. According to the group, the CD will contain "8-10 songs of melodic Finnish dark metal," including "Wounded By Broken Dreams", "Devoid Of The Sun", "Requiem" and "Walking With An Angel". The band adds, "The new album is going to be really melancholic and it includes lots of orchestrations and heavy guitar riffs. There'll also be two kinds of vocals: Mikko's [Ojala] growling vocals and Eliisa's [Tuomanen] clean vocals."

In other news, DARK THE SUNS has once again parted ways with guitarist/keyboardist Juha Kokkonen. A replacement axeman has already been found and will be announced soon.

DARK THE SUNS's second full-length album, "All Ends in Silence", came out in March 2009 via Firebox Records. The CD was mixed at Watercastle studio by Arttu Sarvanne and mastered at Finnvox by Mika Jussila.

DARK THE SUNS' debut album, "In Darkness Comes Beauty", was released in 2007.
