MORBUS CHRON Streams New Song “The Perennial Link”Monday, 24th February 2014
Sweden’s MORBUS CHRON release their second full-length album, Sweven, today (February 24th) in Europe and on March 4th in North America via Century Media Records. The album track “The Perennial Link” is now streaming below.
After the release of their debut album, Sleepers In The Rift (2011), MORBUS CHRON conquered new grounds with their A Saunter Through The Shroud MLP in 2012. This 3-track release showed a development that only a few bands dare to achieve. While still being heavily influenced by AUTOPSY, MORBUS CHRON embedded progressive elements in their music, opening up their sound to other musical influences.
With Sweven, MORBUS CHRON continue to develop their sound, intertwining dark death metal with progressive song structures and melodies that are reminiscent of bands such as ATHEIST, VOIVOD, CORONER and late-DEATH. The end result is still, without a doubt, an extreme metal album, but it’s much more than that. The (often scarcely used) tormented voice of Morbus Chron’s mastermind Robert Andersson, the warm, yet gripping production of Fred Estby (ex-DISMEMBER, DAGGER), the psychedelic harmonies, and the overall complexity of Sweven will set the band apart from the rest. This is not your regular dose of death metal.
