BARREN EARTH - EP release details / Minisite online now

The new Barren Earth minisite is now online, including band/release information & audio samples from their debut EP, ‘Our Twilight’ - out 9th November (11th Finland, 17th US).

With former members of Amorphis, plus current members of Swallow the Sun, Moonsorrow, & Kreator, Finland’s Barren Earth presents this 4-track EP of progressive & folk textured death metal. Inspired by everything from Opeth to Pink Floyd, & Paradise Lost to Jethro Tull, plus obscure psychedelic rock & Finnish prog, it's a fine journey through the realm of melodic brutality & keyboard-soaked atmosphere.


The CD is now available to pre-order from HERE.
 
It can also be announced that the band will play their very first gig, in support of the release, at Dantes Highlight in Helsinki on Thursday 19th November 2009.


Look out for the full-length debut album, coming early 2010, containing the extended version of 'Our Twilight'.

NEW PEACEVILLE SIGNING ANNOUNCED

Peaceville Records is proud to announce the signing of Finnish prog death metallers, Barren Earth. With a line-up consisting of former members of prog/folk metal legends Amorphis, as well as current members of Swallow the Sun, Moonsorrow & Kreator, the band has been busy recording their debut album at the renowned Seawolf Studios in Helsinki, with the tracks currently being mixed by Dan Swanö (Katatonia/Opeth/Novembre).
An EP is due November 2009, with the album currently scheduled for an early 2010 release.


The music of BARREN EARTH combines elements of modern and traditional death metal, with 70's prog rock and folk. Among the band's influences are artists such as Paradise Lost, Opeth, Pink Floyd, Jethro Tull and also some pioneers of Finnish prog.

LINE-UP

Mikko Kotamäki – Vocals (Swallow The Sun)
Olli-Pekka Laine – Bass (Ex-Amorphis, Mannhai)
Kasper Mårtenson –Keyboards (Ex-Amorphis, Ben Granfelt Band)
Janne Perttilä – Guitar (Rytmihäiriö)
Marko Tarvonen – Drums (Moonsorrow)
Sami Ylisirniö – Guitar (Kreator, Waltari)


On signing to Peaceville:

“Getting signed by Peaceville Records is a great honour, as they are one of the very few metal labels left who have a passion and feeling for the music they release. To us, it also feels like coming home, because in a way they carry a big responsibility for BARREN EARTH’s existence by having released the most important albums from pioneers such as Autopsy and Paradise Lost. Those albums played a huge role, when we sucked our musical mother’s milk in the late 80’s and early 90’s. This is a fact that should be noticeably evident in Barren Earth’s sound and music. Hopefully BARREN EARTH will also be able to add a fresh spin to Peaceville’s already impressive roster”.

- Olli-Pekka Laine
