Summing up EVERGREY's new album ‘The Storm Within’ quick and to the point, the band is celebrating their 20th Anniversary with the strongest album of their career.
Swedish metallers EVERGREY will release their new album, "Hymns For The Broken", on September 26 via AFM Records. The CD was recorded at a few different studios and mixed at Hansen studios in Ribe, Denmark by Jacob Hansen (VOLBEAT, AMARANTHE, EPYSODE, PRETTY MAIDS, DORO).
Occasionally a musician has to take a step back into the past to develop artistically. Evergrey, took this risk and reorganised their artistic environment. Glorious Collision is a dynamic goody bag featuring the most diverse material ever released on an Evergrey album. This may sound like a contradiction, but they have allowed more influences on Glorious Collision than ever before. Some elements on Glorious Collision are classic rock, based on a metal format, sometimes the tracks are quiet and haunting, sometimes wild, demanding and gripping.
