TRIBULATION releases stop-motion animated video for Blue Öyster Cult cover: “Vengeance (The Pact)”; new EP, ‘Hamartia’, out now!


Last Friday (April 7th) Tribulation released their new EP, Hamartia, via Century Media Records. For a preview of Hamartia, a stop-motion animated video (produced by Selmer Kastalje: for the band’s Blue Öyster Cult cover – “Vengeance (The Pact)” – can be seen now at:

Adam Zaars (guitars) comments: “We felt that ‘Vengeance (The Pact)’ deserved a video as well, and considering the lyrical content of the song, a stop-motion approach seemed like the way to go. It’s an idea we’ve entertained before, and we’re very glad Selmer Kastalje was available to help us bring this idea to life.”

Purchase Hamartia now here:

Forged amid the grubby depths of the Swedish death metal scene, Tribulation have always been the shadowy outlaws of the underground – and with Hamartia, they’re beginning a new chapter in their sinister story. The group’s songwriting powers have undergone a vigorous rejuvenation; alongside Johannes Andersson (vocals, bass), Adam Zaars (guitars) and Oscar Leander (drums), Tribulation welcomes new guitarist Joseph Tholl on this EP, who split writing duties with Zaars. The resulting four tracks found on Hamartia are a riotous encapsulation of everything that diehard fans demand from the Swedish crew – but sharper, darker and laced with venom.

“…a delightful romp through the various styles of metal in Tribulation‘s musical lexicon.” – Heavy Consequence

“…if this is what [Joseph] Tholl is going to continue to bring to the band in the future, then please – let the man write more.” – Metal Injection

“It would appear that Joseph [Tholl] already knows how to capture the Tribulation style; ‘Axis Mundi’ is a catchy, proggy black/death metal anthem that sounds like classic Tribulation.” – Brooklyn Vegan

“[‘Axis Mundi’] definitely captures the Tribulation sound and fuses their gothic leanings with the progressive black/death sound that the band became known for.”– Metal Sucks

“…the band’s only mistake in judgment here is not expanding this exceptional effort into a full-blown LP.” – Metal Wani

1. Hamartia
2. Axis Mundi
3. Hemoclysm
4. Vengeance (The Pact) [Blue Öyster Cult cover]
