Swedish metal veterans Evergrey reset their #1 Spotify track ‘Call Out The Dark’ in an emotional piano/vocal version, recorded at Evergrey HQ. The new single is cut from the band’s upcoming anniversary album, “From Dark Discoveries to Heartless Portraits”, a celebration of 30 years of Gothenburg’s finest export of darkness, set for release this Friday, December 15, 2023.

The original version of ‘Call Out The Dark’ was released on Evergrey’s highly acclaimed 2022 opus, “A Heartless Portrait (The Orphean Testament)”, which entered charts worldwide at #3 in Sweden (Metal), #7 in Finland, #12 in Germany and ranked #5 on the Top New Artist Albums charts in the United States. The new, beautifully stripped-down version of the song comes with a fitting visualizer video.

Jonas Ekdahl states:​ ”I love how Tom and Rikard manage to take these songs and transform them into something unique and different than its original form and sound. If you manage to remove all the production elements within a song and strip everything down to its essence, and still feel that it holds up and sounds good – you know it’s a good song! That’s exactly what they have done with these Piano/Vocal versions in my opinion. This version of ’Call Out The Dark’ delivers slightly darker vibe and the lyrics stand out and reach you even more than on the original version.”

“From Dark Discoveries to Heartless Portraits” will be available in various formats. The compilation unites Evergrey’s past and present and paves the way for their next chapter, and an even brighter future to come. Here’s to another 30!

In addition to live versions of recent tracks like ‘Call Out The Dark’ and ‘Where August Mourns’, the record travels down memory lane with ‘My Allied Ocean’, ‘A Touch Of Blessing’, ‘Recreation Day’ and ‘King Of Errors’. The second half of the offering contains soulful piano vocal versions of four songs from the latest full-length, ‘Save Us’, ‘Call Out The Dark’, ‘Blindfolded’ and ‘Midwinter Calls’, and demo versions of the same tracks, topped by an instrumental version of ‘A Silent Arc’.
