After earning a Swedish Grammis Award earlier this year for their critically acclaimed latest album Where the Gloom Becomes Sound (2021), TRIBULATION have now returned with a new standalone single and video: “Hamartia“.
A first recording to feature new guitarist Joseph Tholl, “Hamartia” was recorded with Robert Pehrsson, mixed by Tom Dalgety (who previously mixed Where the Gloom Becomes Sound), mastered by Magnus Lindberg and comes with artwork by TRIBULATION guitarist Adam Zaars.
“Hamartia” – which was directed by Johan Bååth & Astrid Bergdahl – can be viewed below.

TRIBULATION’s Adam Zaars commented about “Hamartia” as follows: “This is a song about the many shades of the word Hamartia. It’s an angry gothic tragedy sonically, and introduces Joseph on guitar. This is the first of a few. We hope you like it!“
After a successful run of festivals shows across Europe, North America and South America this summer, TRIBULATION will finally be back on the road starting last week, joining Watain, Abbath and Bölzer on the “Chariots of Fire” European Tour 2022.
TRIBULATION’s latest, fifth full-length – Where the Gloom Becomes Sound – indisputably elevated the Swedes to the highest echelons and turned out to be their most expressive and inventive album to-date. ” We immersed ourselves in the world of myth and magic,” says guitarist and founding member Adam Zaars. “With a specific focus on elemental magic, and the elements, in general, from both the Western and Indian esoteric traditions, not the Buddhist four elements but the five elements. Myth and magic are obviously not something new in the world of Tribulation, but it got a bit more specific on this album. We just present it from a slightly different perspective.“
