Sweden's progressive/melodlic death metal six-piece IN MOURNING, featuring Daniel Liljekvist formerly of Katatonia on drums, have made their new album "Afterglow" available for streaming prior to release date. Set to be released on May 20th via Agonia Records, "Afterglow" is the successor to IN MOURNING's much lauded 2012 offering "The Weight Of Oceans". The album's astonishing cover artwork was made by Kristian Wåhlin (Bathory, Tiamat, King Diamond). Listen to the full album at:
IN MOURNING commented: "The new album is called "Afterglow" and its story takes off from where "The Weight Of Oceans" ends. It’s a bit more complex than our previous albums and it has got a bit of a different sound than the older ones, a bit more alive like a band and maybe not always as studio corrected as our earlier material. However, the foundation of the music is still what we’ve always done and the key elements are pretty much the same but with some new additions and a few new twists and turns of course".
"Afterglow" has been recorded between November 2015 and March 2016 in Nordin Music Studios (drums) and Libra Studios (guitar, bass and vocals). Mixing and mastering duties have been handeled by Jonas Martinsson in Necrosavant Studio.
