Post-metal, doomgazers MOUNTAINEER will release their heavily-anticipated, third full-length album, “Bloodletting,” next Friday, May 22nd with Lifeforce Records. With a week to go, the band has unveiled another new song, titled “Ghost Story,” further revealing the depth and magnitude of the impending record.
“’Ghost Story’ is the last track on the album, and the most personal to me,” says guitarist Clayton Bartholomew. “I think it serves as a crescendo: the conceptual culmination of everything that came before it. The last line in the song means a great deal to me… “If you ever change your mind, you know where to find me. If you ever find a change, you know where to look.” It is a resolution; a way of leaving a door slightly ajar and an optimistic viewpoint given the sentiment that drives the rest of the album leading up to this point.“
HANGING GARDEN’s new EP “Against the Dying of the Light” is a peculiar release, consisting of a new song, alongside completely different approach on a handful of songs from “Into That Good Night”. The songs could be called rearrangements, remixes or revisitations, but venture a bit further from their origins. Dark, delicate and violent moods are portrayed in the tracks, painting a picture at the same time familiar, but also a bit different from what one could expect from Hanging Garden.
“As we weren’t able to get together to shoot a video, we decided to do the best we could with cell phone cameras and suddenly empty streets of Helsinki.“
