The release of BARREN EARTH‘s eagerly awaited third full-length album “On Lonely Towers” (on Century Media) is coming closer and now they have launched a lyric video for their brand new song “A Shapeless Derelict”.
Watch the lyric video here:
Bassist Olli-Pekka Laine comments on the music: “Varying from 90’s death and doom metal to 70’s avant-garde prog rock, ‘A Shapeless Derelict’ represents Barren Earth’s roots in their purest form. Let the track’s original title, Kingtopsy, a hybrid between King Crimson and Autopsy, do the talking. Having these ingredients blended and represented in modern, but still traditional standards, ‘A Shapeless Derelict’ simply stands up to its name: Abandoned and deserted at sea – moaning alone, oddly, yet proudly!”
Singer J??ldar?escribes the story behind the lyrics: “A forsaken girl wanders through both physical and mental landscapes without direction as hallucinations and desperation tear at her mind. This is a metaphor-heavy song about overcoming the fear of being nothing in a world without true meaning and gaining courage to live nonetheless.”
“On Lonely Towers” will be released via Century Media Records on March 30th, 2015 in Europe and March 24th, 2015 in North America and will be available as Ltd. Digipak Edition, Ltd. 2LP, Standard Jewel Case Edition and as digital download.
BARREN EARTH managed to build up an excellent reputation with only two albums: Their debut “Curse Of The Red River” (2010) and its follow-up “The Devil’s Resolve” (2012) have already solidified the band as one of the most promising upcoming acts of the genre and now they are at the ready to release another milestone in their career, taking the experimentation and heaviness to even further heights.
