Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

When it comes to defending the core values of timeless power metal and combining them with fresh stylistic variations and exciting stories, Swedish power metallers Bloodbound have always been fighting at the forefront. With nine studio albums in 16 years under their belt, the six-piece has proven their versatility and inventiveness countless times. Following the much acclaimed, latest record “Creatures Of The Dark Realm” (2021, AFM Records), Bloodbound recently announced the release of their upcoming masterpiece, entitled “Tales From The North”

After first album singles, “Odin’s Prayer” and “The Raven’s Cry”, today, Bloodbound are premiering a music video for the album’s closing track “1066”. Fredrik Bergh adds: “1066 is one of the more epic tracks on the album. One of my favorite songs from “Tales from the North!”

Watch the video below.

“’Tales From The North’ is very much a concept album about the viking era. About the lives of our ancestors up here in the dark, cold and unfriendly environments of the north,” explains lead guitarist Tomas Olsson and summarizes the content of their eleven songs: “Different legends and myths intertwine during the course of the songs, leading up to the epic battle of 1066, which marks the end of the viking era.” 

Those who already know the sound of Bloodbound can imagine the metallic force the band employs to evoke this story. “Tales From The North” will be released on July 7, 2023 via AFM/Soulfood as a 2-CD digipak including a live CD. As a special treat, it will also be released as a strictly limited box set as well as colored vinyl LPs.

Bloodbound have not only improved in terms of content, but also musically. Says Olsson: “The songs are more fast-paced and closer to some of our earlier stuff like ’Moria’ and ’Nosferatu’, but have more complex arrangements. Compared to the predecessor ‘Creatures Of The Dark Realm‘ there are heavier guitars and some deeper sounding keyboards. We have also incorporated some traditional Nordic folk music instruments to fit the concept of the album. It`s still pure power metal but we’re trying to take it to the next level.”
 
“Tales From The North” was produced by Bloodbound, and was mixed and mastered by Jonas Kjellgren (Amorphis, Overkill, Sabaton) at the Swedish ‘Black Lounge Studios’. The cover artwork was done by Péter Sallai (Hammerfall, Powerwolf  & many more).
