FISSION, the collaboration between BORKNAGAR/VINTERSORG frontman Andreas Hedlund (a.k.a. Vintersorg) and VINTERSORG live session drummer Benny "Hgge" Hgglund, has posted two new songs on its MySpace page: "Pain Parade" and "Frequency Control" (short version). The tracks come off the group's forthcoming second album, "Pain Parade", due later in the year via Aphotic Records. The CD was mixed at Ballerina Audio with Nils Johansson (VINTERSORG, NAGLFAR, TME). According to a press release, "Pain Parade" will contain "eight brilliant songs that mix the most of [what] metal has to offer."
Watch a trailer for the CD below.
"Pain Parade" track listing:
02. Frequency Control
03. Dear Frenzy!
04. Pain Parade
05. Machination (The Kallocain Protocol)
06. Collision and Collapse
08. Mekanisk r Sjlen
FISSION's debut album, "Crater", was released in 2004 via Napalm Records.
According to Hedlund, FISSION's musical style can be described as "harsh and razor-sharp thrash metal, with a lot of melody and atmosphere. Some links can be made to bands like AT THE GATES it has some of that melodism but still has its very own identity. Vocally, the style switches between bone-chilling black-metal escapism, to soothing and calm voice-scapes, and the lethal dose of attitude in multiple parts are of course very present."
