Evergrey recently released their new album The Storm Within and soon they will be embarking on a European tour supporting Delain. The new Evergrey album picked up where Hymns for the Broken left off, but with a much darker tone. Something that is not only pleasing to the ear, but it also it reflects on how much Evergrey has grown as a band.
The Storm Within deals with love lost and life lost, it is one of the darkest most melancholic albums that we have listening in years, and so far the deepest album that Evergrey has ever done. Songs like Distance deals with the long gone love between lovers while the rest of the album deals with grief and sorrow for the loss of a loved one. The album’s darkness is a revival embrace to dark lyrics that deal with painful human emotions.
Evergrey this time around invited Floor Jansen (Nightwish/Revamp) for a couple of songs (In Orbit & Disconnect) which added a Nightwishian tone to the record, but we most not forget the guest appearance of Carina Englund (Tom’s wife) in the song The Paradox of the Flame, which is one of the most gorgeous songs on the record.
To understand more about The Storm Within we spoke with Tom Englund (Guitar/Vocals) and Henrik Danhage (Guitar) of Evergrey while they were in Atlanta attending ProgPower USA for an exclusive listening party for those lucky enough assisting the festival. We also talked about an upcoming US tour, their European tour, and much more.
