  9. Sweet Soul Gathering

Mastermind Rune Eriksen comments on behalf of EARTH ELECTRIC: "We have chosen the aptly titled 'Meditate. Mediate' as our first single, because this song reflects the content and theme of our album well. We also feel that its vibe serves as a wake-up call for this rather bleak and egocentric world. We simply need more colours! Through our debut 'Vol.1: Solar' we convey pure emotions with a musical emphasis on 'the classic era' of hard rock. In our opinion, the result is adventurous and fun; at times a tad psychedelic and untamed yet on the other hand classic and refined. This is no make-up, just pure rock in all its pride and glory. We are Earth Electric!"

'Vol.1: Solar' can be pre-ordered in various formats from the Season of Mist shop.

Wed, Feb 22 2017: ULSECT

Upcoming release: "Ulsect"

Release date: Fri, May 12 2017, US Fri, May 12 2017

ULSECT have premiered the first track taken from their self-titled debut album, which has been slated for release on May 12th.

The Dutch death metal innovators are now streaming the opening song "Fall to Depravity" exclusively via the official premiere partners listed below.

Crank It Up (SE)
Terrorizer (UK)

Regarding the song premiere, ULSECT comment: "Our track 'Fall to Depravity' portrays moral atrophy, the corruption of human essence and the relapse into inhuman ways. The deteriorating rhythmic motif threaded throughout our album's opening track represents this gradual decay. Segments of delusive tranquillity and the vicious walls of sound revealed here, form a first glance of what our debut has to offer. We are truly proud of what we have created and are thrilled to finally be able to share this first track with all of you!"
