SOULGRIND, the Finnish band featuring former LULLACRY frontwoman Tanja "Whisper Lilith" Kemppainen (a.k.a. Tanya), will release its ninth album, "The Tuoni Pathway", on May 3 via U.K.'s Femme Metal Records. The CD will feature a guest appearance by Roope Latvala of CHILDREN OF BODOM.
Two songs from the album — "The Call Of The Dancing Waters" and "Rain Before The Dawn" — are available for streaming on the band's MySpace page.
Commented SOULGRIND guitarist Lord Heikkinen: "We have done the best album to date. Nine tracks of beauty, heaviness and darkness. . . Overall, it is a one helluva album."
A video for "The Call Of The Dancing Waters" was recently completed and will be released soon.
A demo version of the song "Farewell To Misery" appeared on the "Demonic and Divine" compilation, which was released through Femme Metal Records. The track is described as "a tale of an old couple still in love after 50, heading to death, so enjoy the dark ride."
SOULGRIND's last CD, "Pakana", was released in February 2007 via Holy Records.
"Pakana", was recorded at D studio and was released in February 2007. It was the follow-up to "The Origins of the Paganblood", which was issued in January 2005 via France's Holy Records.
