3:14 PMGraveworm announce details on upcoming album
GRAVEWORM are back – and almost back to the roots!
The Italian dark metal outfit delivers once again a melodic, mystic and dark masterpiece. The sequel to the successful "Diabolical Figures" album from 2009 will be called "Fragments of Death".
Now, the band announced the tracklist and the artwork of the upcoming album:
02. Only Death In Our Wake
03. Absence Of Faith
04. Living Nightmare
05. The World Will Die In Flames
06. 不安の中で (Anxiety)
07. See No Future
08. The Prophecy
10. Old Forgotten Song
11. Where Angels Do Not Fly
Stephano Fiori commended the new album:
"For me, the cover artwork reflects exactly the lyrics. The album generally deals with the topic of death. So the fragments are pieces of the puzzle of death. Each one of the songs represents a way to die. For example, song 6 is about the happenings in Japan. Other songs are about war, which sadly still exists in this world these days. We’re all influenced by all of these proceedings. Be it that you’re confronted with them yourself, you know someone who is, or you see it in the media. The angel of death on the cover is made of pieces of the puzzle, the so-called elements of death…”
Cover artist Daniel Hofer states:
„When the band presented the new album’s title and the contentual orientation to me, a concrete picture came to my mind quite quickly. An angel of death, rising from one dimension and returning to his former strenght. The ´fragments´of this angel of death are both depicted as shards and pieces of a puzzle – this image can be found throughout the whole booklet.
The basic idea for the cover can be transferred to the band’s musical return to their roots and can be compared to the quite well-behaved angel that could be seen on the (N)Utopia cover who returns now as a cornuted messenger of death.
After "Diabolical Figures”, it was a very nice and productive cooperation again and I’m happy that the band agreed on me as the designer once more.”
"Fragments Of Death” will be out at October, 21, 2011 via Nuclear Blast.
