As I’m writing this news piece, our regular contributor Noyan is on the phone talking to Dark Tranquillity vocalist Mikael Stanne, which will be posted in the coming weeks as an interview. With this in mind, I think it’s safe to say that we’re more than a little excited over the upcoming Dark Tranquillity album Construct. We feel that Dark Tranqullity are one of the few bands from the rise of melodic death metal that remained fairly legit in the genre’s roots and continued putting out solid music, and that trend continues with the band’s new single, ‘For Broken Words.’
The track rules, needless to say. While not necessarily heavy, the song has that melancholic atmosphere going on that is patently Dark Tranquillity. Those guitar leads are so catchy, man. The song is just powerful and bodes well for the whole album. Construct is due out March 27th on Century Media Records. Pre-orders will be available soon, so keep an eye out!
