VINTERSORG: New Album Release Date, Cover Artwork Revealed

VINTERSORG, the Swedish band led by BORKNAGAR frontman Andreas Hedlund (a.k.a. Vintersorg), will release its new album, "Solens Rötter" (English translation: "The Origin of the Sun") on April 27 in Europe and May 22 in the U.S. via Napalm Records. The CD was mixed at Ballerina Audio with the engineer Nils Johansson. Songtitles set to appear on the CD songtitles for the album: "Kosmosaik", "Naturens Mystär", "Vad Aftonvindens Andning Viskar", "Spirar och Gror", [and] 'Strålar'. Check out the cover artwork at this location.

VINTERSORG previously stated about the new CD, "It has taken some time to complete this album, but it hasn't been about not having ideas; instead it has taken us some time to understand what kind of album we wanted to do and how to reach that vision. A more ethnic approach is obvious but still with a fresh vibe as we see it ourselves, hymn-like passages mixed with soothing parts, acoustic guitars are present as well as harsh black metal elements; all filtered through our Nordic minds. But don't expect 'The Focusing Blur' part II; new ideas are very present but the songs feels very fluent and bear the atmosphere of nature in all its forms."

VINTERSORG recently extended its worldwide recording contract with Napalm Records "to include multiple releases," according to a posting on the Napalm web site.

The follow-up to 2004's "The Focusing Blur", "Solens Rötter" will not feature contributions from Steve DiGiorgio (SADUS, SEBASTIAN BACH, TESTAMENT, DEATH) and drummer Asgeir Mickelson (SPIRAL ARCHITECT, BORKNAGAR), both of whom performed on the band's last two releases.

Vintersorg's collaboration with BORKNAGAR's Oystein G. Brun (guitars and programming), dubbed CRONIAN, released its debut album, "Terra", in the U.S. in April 2006 via Century Media Records. The CD, which was issued in Europe on March 27, was mastered by Dan Swanö at Unisound.
