Swedish metallers DREAM EVIL will release their sixth album, aptly titled "Six", on May 26 via Century Media Records.
The official video for the disc's opening track, "Dream Evil", can be seen below. The clip was directed by the band's longtime partner in visuals Patric Ullaeus (IN FLAMES, LACUNA COIL, DIMMU BORGIR, ARCH ENEMY).
DREAM EVIL has checked in with the following comment about the eponymously titled song: "Many bands have a song that features the band's name… but it's actually hard to find a song you feel so directly confident with that it can 'wear' the band's name. In our opinion, the song 'Dream Evil' has this quality, so that's also why it was the obvious choice for our first video of 'Six'. Enjoy!"
"Six" track listing:
01. Dream Evil
03. Sin City
04. Creature Of The Night
06. Six Hundred And 66
07. How To Start A War
08. The Murdered Mind
09. Too Loud
10. 44 Riders
11. Broken Wings
12. We Are Forever
In addition to the album's standard version as CD and digital download, will be made available as a 180-gram vinyl version with a poster and bonus CD as well as in the limited-edition mediabook CD format with two bonus tracks ("Under Attack" and "Nowhere To Run") and three stickers.
The follow-up to 2010's "In The Night" was once again produced by DREAM EVIL guitarist Fredrik Nordström at his own Studio Fredman facilities, which is the birthplace of many modern metal masterpieces by such bands as IN FLAMES, ARCH ENEMY, HAMMERFALL, AT THE GATES, DIMMU BORGIR, POWERWOLF, ARCHITECTS and BRING ME THE HORIZON.
The "Six" cover artwork, which can be seen below, was again created by Gustavo Sazes (ARCH ENEMY, AMARANTHE, FIREWIND).
In related news, May 26 will also see the release of the third DREAM EVIL album, "The Book Of Heavy Metal", for the first time ever on vinyl. Considered a modern heavy metal classic by many, 2004's "The Book Of Heavy Metal" will be available on 180-gram black vinyl with the entire album on CD as a bonus.
