Second To Sun Premiere New Song & Music Video “The Train 1702” From Upcoming New Album “The Walk”

Russian metal outfit SECOND TO SUN will release their new album The Walk on November 25. An official video for the track “The Train 1702” is streaming below:

The band released the following statement concerning the song:

“This song is based on the urban legend of the North of Russia. It is about the freight train number 1702, which travels through the deep forests of Northern Europe. According to legend, during the journey, the crew meets an alien object that first surrounds the train, and then picks up the train and moves it with a giant speed. The song describes what is happening and the emotional feeling of the crew, including visual and sound design tools (the average tempo of the composition, like the train, guitar parts emphasize what the song is about, there are original sounds of the train). Musically, the song is inspired by American groove metal and Scandinavian black metal.”

Century Media Records Inks Deal With Swallow The Sun, New Album Expected Winter 2015

Century Media Records and Swallow the Sun announced a worldwide deal to release the band’s upcoming albums.

Jens Prueter, Head Of A&R Century Media Records Europe comments: “It’s probably no news that we love the dark side of Finland. But we are very proud to finally work with one of the darkest Finnish bands that have spread their gospel of doom for the last 15 years. I first took notice of Swallow the Sun when my Century Media colleague Philipp Schulte released their debut album on vinyl on his own label Imperium Productions. Since then I’ve met them at several shows with bands like Moonsorrow, Insomnium and Paradise Lost, and became a fan of their unique mix of doom, death and despair. It’s an honor to start our direct relationship with a very special release later this year. Kippis, Cheers and Prost on the the next 15 years!”

Vocalist Mikko commented: “We are really excited to be a part of the Century Media family, of a label which has done great work for years with many bands. This is also good news for all our fans because from now on our coming albums are more easily found all over the world. We are currently working on new songs in the studio for a release coming out later this year. More good news coming soon!”

Now, SWALLOW THE SUN is working on their new, currently untitled sixth studio album, which will be unleashed winter 2015. Stay tuned for more news coming soon!
