Find here another new track entitled ‚Our Dark Design‘ from the forthcoming new album „I Am Become“ by Finnish masters of high-class melancholia HANGING GARDEN!
While retaining their roots in metal music, HANGING GARDEN possess a versatile style of playing, drawing influence and inspiration from music and art. By doing so, the Finns strive for a permanent impression and songs that go beyond music. The conceptual approach anticipates the interaction with the listeners and reaches far below the surface. The band from Helsinki addresses implicit, pure feelings as they calls for the concentration of the listeners. On this basis, HANGING GARDEN’s development continues consistently on the fifth album. “I Am Become” sounds familiar on the one and surprising, yet challenging on the other hand. Again there are well-known guest-vocalists to find on the record – such as Tomi Joutsen (AMORPHIS) or Niko Kalliojärvi (AMORAL, HUMAVOID).
HANGING GARDEN’s fifth full-length album, „I am Become“, focuses thematically on an inexorable aspect of life – as well as it’s antonym: death. The approach to the theme is personal – the feelings of loss, yearning, and cherishing the deeds and words of those no longer here. The songs contain epitaphs and obituaries in the band’s native tongue, to keep the full meaning and connotations of the words intact. The powerful voices of familiar guests vocalists from bands such as Amorphis and Amoral can also be heard on the album, adding to its dark and compelling atmosphere.
The album brings forth an array of tunes both serene and somber, and continues the bands aesthetic play of light and dark, further developing their journey of different soundscapes.
HANGING GARDEN were given birth in 2004, playing heavy, doom-oriented metal music. Over more than a decade, several releases and numerous line-up changes, bands style has evolved to a more melodic, contemporary sound that is rooted in dark atmospheres and open-minded, playful musicality. With changing the context and adding guest singers, the atmospheric sound of the six Finns further gains in importance and emotional impression. Dark and light moments – it is both in there. “I Am Become” is the newest chapter in this impressive band career.
