BLOODBOUND Premieres New Single Of Upcoming Album “Tales From The North”!


Following their much acclaimed, 2021-album, Creatures Of The Dark Realm, Swedish power metal act Bloodbound has shared a brand new track of their upcoming masterpiece, entitled Tales From The North! The band’s tenth studio album will be released on July 7, 2023 via AFM Records as a 2-CD digipak including a live CD, a strictly limited box set as well as coloured vinyl LPs, the pre-sale is available here.

When it comes to defending the core values of timeless power metal and combining them with fresh stylistic variations and exciting stories, Bloodbound have always been fighting at the forefront. The six-piece has proven their versatility and inventiveness countless times, and Tales From The North will make no exception; those who already know the sound of Bloodbound can imagine the metallic force the band employs to evoke this story. As lead guitarist Tomas Olsson recently unveiled:

“’Tales From The North’ is very much a concept album about the viking era. About the lives of our ancestors up here in the dark, cold and unfriendly environments of the north. Different legends and myths intertwine during the course of the songs, leading up to the epic battle of 1066, which marks the end of the viking era.”

After the band kicked off the new year with first album single “Odin’s Prayer”, today, they are presenting a new track taken of their Tales From The North! Says Fredrik Bergh comments. “The Raven’s Cry is one of my favorite tracks on the album. Here we have mixed our nordic folk music influences with an almost hymn-like chorus.“

Tales From The North was produced by Bloodbound, and was mixed and mastered by Jonas Kjellgren (Amorphis, Overkill, Sabaton) at the Swedish ‘Black Lounge Studios’. The cover artwork was created by Péter Sallai (Hammerfall, Powerwolf & many more).

Olsson continues: “The songs are more fast-paced and closer to some of our earlier stuff like ’Moria’ and ’Nosferatu’, but have more complex arrangements. Compared to the predecessor ‚Creatures Of The Dark Realm‘ there are heavier guitars and some deeper sounding keyboards. We have also incorporated some traditional nordic folk music instruments to fit the concept of the album. It`s still pure power metal but we’re trying to take it to the next level.”
