It takes a while to get going, but once it does, it’s not so bad.
The song at the end of this post is called “If Not Here, Where?,” and comes from Finnish metal act Amoral’s forthcoming new album.
That record’s called Fallen Leaves & Dead Sparrows, which will be released in early 2014.
It is “a concept album, and ‘If Not Here, Where?’ sits right in the middle of the album and the story, marking a turning point in the protagonist’s journey,” says Ben Varon, guitarist and main songwriter of Amoral.
“We wanted the first taste to really represent the whole album. Also, ‘If Not Here, Where?’ being such a massive chunk of music, almost like two songs in one, it will take some time for listeners to digest it all, and hopefully this track will keep people occupied until we leak out another song.”
This will be Amoral’s sixth album.
