STREAM AVATARIUM'S DEBUT ALBUM IN FULL - 2013-10-31

2013-10-31 - The self-titled debut album by new Swedish doomsters AVATARIUM - featuring legendary doom metal pioneer Leif Edling (CANDLEMASS) on bass, Marcus Jidell (EVERGREY) on guitar, Carl Westholm (CANDLEMASS) on keyboards, Lars Sköld (TIAMAT) on drums, and singer extraordinaire Jennie-Ann Smith – is now available for streaming in its entirety on Terrorizer.com: http://www.terrorizer.com/news/streams/stream-avatariums-debut-album-exclusively-terrorizer

The album will be released tomorrow in Europe and is due out in the North America on November 26th.

AVATARIUM founder Leif Edling describes the tracks on Avatarium in his own words:
Track 1 – Moonhorse:

"The first song I wrote. It's about a little sick kid lying in bed daydreaming, and wanting to be out playing with his friends. Lots of dynamics and contrast in this song. Light and shade. One of the best songs I have written, I think."

Track 2 - Pandora's Egg:
"About the sickness in the world. Collected by the gods and locked in, but now in free flow. Jennie-Ann sings it like a female Ronnie James Dio. Great!"

Track 3 – Avatarium:
"Very twisted and a bit proggy. To me, anyway. Mainly describes what an 'avatarium' is: a place anywhere, of any size, where you can worship your demi-gods. Could be that singer, a politician, Tony Iommi, an actor, a historical figure, porn actress, etc."

Track 4 – Boneflower:
"THE MAMAS AND THE PAPAS meets BLUE ÖYSTER CULT. '60s pop vs. heavy rock… melody contra prog in the mid-part. Cool song describing the beauty in suicide. A forest where lovers go to commit unified suicide when the world denies them their love."

Track 5 - Bird Of Prey:
"I took the London Ripper out of context here and put him in modern day Berlin. I've been to Berlin every summer for a number of years now, and I really like the old 'east' Berlin. It's like what the London Soho was in 1980. Fantastic place with lots of bars, culture, food, cool people and music. Thought it was a nice idea to put the Berlin Ripper there. Yes… before you say anything…. I'm aware of the fact that there actually was a real Berlin Ripper in the '20s or something like that. A guy having a butcher shop where he made sausage of his victims and sold it to his customers… hu…. Lovely song, though…"

Track 6 - Tides Of Telepathy:
"Nice semi-progressive track about a guy in a tower with an iron helmet on, enhancing his telepathic waves, sending them like tsunamis of fire to a parallel world they are at war with. Of course he puts his own world into ruins except his own tower. Leaving him totally alone there."

Track 7 - Lady In The Lamp:
"The beautiful ballad! A girl is trapped by a wizard and is forced to sing for him. If she stops, she dies. Fantastic end solo by Marcus [Jidell]!"
Avatarium can be pre-ordered from the Nuclear Blast Webshop: http://shop.nuclearblast.com/en/products/sound/cd/cd/avatarium-avatarium-pre-order-.html
