Amberian Dawn Unveils New Album “Darkness Of Eternity”

Amberian Dawn today unveils the initial details for an upcoming studio album including artwork, release date, and track listing. Band mastermind Tuomas Seppälä comments:

“‘Darkness of Eternity’ is one of the most emotional AD-albums so far. It’s got some really bombastic songs in mood of dark & symphonic melodic metal and in contrast to that also some really poppy songs too. For me it’s really hard to stick in one genre only and I constantly want to compose different kinds of songs!”

The “Magic Forest” story continues on this album and Tuomas explains: “The song ‘Symphony Nr.1. Part 1 – The Witchcraft’ told the story on the last record ‘Innuendo’ before the time of ‘Magic Forest.’ The little girl is a healer and village elders buried her alive in a coffin. The track ‘Symphony Nr.1. Part 2 – Darkness of Eternity’ on our upcoming record ‘Darkness of Eternity’ tells the story of the girl lying in the coffin trying to get out. Darkness is asking her to dance the waltz of eternity. The story will continue in Part 3 and we will tell you how she became the Magic Forest’s evil witch!”

New album “Darkness of Eternity” will be available on November 10th, 2017 via Napalm Records and the full track listing reads as follows:

1. I’m The One
2. Sky Is Falling
3. Dragonflies
4. Maybe
5. Golden Coins
6. Luna My Darling
7. Abyss
8. Ghostwoman
9. Breathe Again
10. Symphony Nr. 1, part 2 – Darkness Of Eternity
11. Anyone (Bonus Track)
