Long-running Greek death/doom troupe On Thorns I Lay is unleashing their eighth studio offering this spring 2018 titled ‘Aegean Sorrow‘.
Easily among the most consuming records of their more than twenty-year career, Aegean Sorrow fuses seemingly clashing concepts of catchy melodies and an incessantly mournful ambiance throughout.
“After the recordings of our seventh album Eternal Silence, which took place back in 2004 the band decided to take a long pause because we felt that we were losing our musical identity. In 2015, we felt the need to write music again and this is how Aegean Sorrow was created. It is a mix taken from our first demos and our first four albums back in the ’90s, but with a modern sound. It is exactly what we love to hear, first of all, as fans. No trends, just pure feelings and music.”
Recorded at Devasoundz Studios by Fotis Benardo.
Mixed and mastered at Unisound AB Studio by Dan Swanö.
