Swedish metal masters Evergrey celebrate their 30 years of career with an anniversary album, to be released via Napalm Records: “From Dark Discoveries To Heartless Portraits”, out on December 15, 2023.
The album will be available in various formats, including an extremely limited 112-page hardcover book and 1CD digisleeve bundle (including rare photos and imagery, behind the scenes stories and exclusive liner notes from the band members).
The band says:
Make sure you get a hold off the limited-edition book as we have worked intensely for months to gather all the photos and write all the stories for each of the albums. It’s an insanely cool product to have and to remember all of these years together with us! Here’s to another 30!
The offering features live versions of recent tracks like “Call Out The Dark” and “Where August Mourns“, as well as classics like “My Allied Ocean“, “A Touch Of Blessing“, “Recreation Day” and “King Of Errors“. The second half of the album brings soulful piano vocal versions of four songs from the latest tudio album (“Save Us“, “Call Out The Dark“, “Blindfolded” and “Midwinter Calls“), demo versions of the same tracks, besides an instrumental version of “A Silent Arc“.
