New Album, “A Complex Of Cages”, Due March 30 via Century Media Records; Pre-orders Now Available
Finnish progressive death metal supergroup, BARREN EARTH, have released the brand new single “Withdrawal”, taken off their upcoming album “A Complex Of Cages”, which will be released on March 30 via CENTURY MEDIA RECORDS.
Vocalist Jón Aldará comments, "Withdrawal moves Barren Earth into previously unexplored territory, making it an unorthodox album closer, but one that makes complete sense to us. It is the song that inspired the album title, and it's theme of social anxiety is the glue which binds the songs together, lyrically."
Drummer Marko Tarvonen adds, "Barren Earth was always heavily categorised as death metal or prog for mixing those two influences. With Withdrawal we wanted to do something that is neither. Instead this song is a slowly growing rock ballad where the instrumentation has been kept minimal giving most room for Jón's voice. It's the ballad that Scorpions or King Crimson never did!"
“Withdrawal” is available as a digital single on all download and streaming platforms and as an Instant Grat Track on iTunes and Amazon. Preorders for “A Complex of Cages” are now available at https://BarrenEarth.lnk.to/AComplexOfCages
