THE MAN-EATING TREE: New Song Available For Free Download

THE MAN-EATING TREE — the atmospheric metal band featuring former SENTENCED drummer Vesa Ranta alongside current/former members of POISONBLACK, REFLEXION and EMBRAZE — has made a new song, "Vultures", available for free download at this location.

Commented guitarist Janne Markus: "'Vultures' is actually allowing you to catch a glimpse at the upcoming album. You might be able to find some new influences in this song that might help you to imagine how the new album will sound like and what it will be about. Also, the song is a perfect soundtrack for the darkness of December."

Fan-filmed video footage of THE MAN-EATING TREE performing the song "Of Birth For Passing" on November 9, 2010 at Musikzentrum in Hannover, Germany can be viewed below.

"Of Birth For Passing" comes off THE MAN-EATING TREE's debut album, "Vine", which was released in Finland on September 22 via Cobra Records and in other territories through Century Media Records. The CD was recorded at Mastervox Studio in Oulu, Finland with producer Hiili Hiilesmaa (HIM, SENTENCED, AMORPHIS).

According to the group's official bio, THE MAN-EATING TREE was formed when "Vesa Ranta, having taken a break from music after SENTENCED, began to overcome his post-SENTENCED battle fatigue and lack of musical motivation. The idea of a new band — or bands — was eventually brainstormed over a period of time between Vesa and his friends, including gentlemen Miika Tenkula, Aaron Rantonen, Janne Markus and Mikko Uusimaa. Plans were made reality in 2009; the outfit was completed by the addition of Tuomas Tuominen as a vocalist and Heidi Määttä as a keyboard player. First demo recordings were made in the spring and summer of 2009.

"The bulk of compositions are the origin of Janne Markus, with some contribution also from Aaron Rantonen. Much of the lyrical input is contributed by Tuomas Tuominen. These are the building blocks of the music, which is finally arranged hands-on at the band house by the entire group."

THE MAN-EATING TREE is:

Tuomas Tuominen (ex-FALL OF THE LEAFE) - Vocals
Janne Markus (POISONBLACK) - Guitar
Mikko Uusimaa (REFLEXION) - Bass
Heidi Määttä (ex-EMBRAZE) - Keyboards
Vesa Ranta (ex-SENTENCED) - Drums
