After more than 30 years of existence, Gothenburg's finest metal masters EVERGREY are far away from
slowing things down. The five-piece, led by founder, singer and guitarist Tom S. Englund, will release
its fourteenth studio album, Theories of Emptiness, on June 7, 2024 via Napalm Records. Without any
doubt, the new album marks one of the most dynamic records the band has ever crafted throughout
their impressive career. Theories of Emptiness was produced by Tom S. Englund and Jonas Ekdahl, and
was mixed by Adam "Nolly" Getgood (ex-Periphery), who worked closely with the band from the start
- bringing out the vividness of the album’s overall sonic profile. Rounding out the album’s production,
mastering was helmed by Thomas “Plec” Johansson (Soilwork, The Night Flight Orchestra, Onslaught,
The Gems, Eleine and many more).
Since releasing their first album, The Dark Discovery, in 1998, EVERGREY have gifted their devotees 13
studio records depicting dark, emotional imagery supported by progressive and heavy melodic metal
elements. Theories of Emptiness follows its chart-topping and critically acclaimed predecessor, 2022’s
A Heartless Portrait (The Orphean Testament), which entered charts worldwide at #3 in Sweden
(Metal), ranked #5 on the Top New Artist Albums charts in the United States, entered #7 in Finland and
#12 in Germany.
“For us, progression is paramount”, states Tom S. Englund when discussing the eleven track opus,
Theories of Emptiness. “We're dedicated to ensuring that our music remains innovative and avoids
stagnation. With each album, we strive to introduce something new — a unique flavor, a different key
or chord, fresh voices in our writing, or innovative production techniques.” In fact, no stone has been
left unturned. Tracks are created to balance each-other mutually: from the aggressive tones of
“Misfortune“ contrasting the light-hearted opening of “To Become Someone Else“, to the ballad “Ghost
of My Hero“ leading into the furious riffs of “We Are the North“. Album opener “Falling From the Sun”
(sequel to A Heartless Portrait (The Orphean Testament) track “Ominous”) and “Say“ interweave
heaviness with mesmerizing keyboards and unpredictable instrumental parts, as also heard on “The
Night Within“. On “Cold Dreams”, Englund’s distinctive voice is accompanied by Jonas Renkse of fellow
Swedish metal icons Katatonia, splicing the song with a stellar performance that underlines another
intense facet of the album. In addition, Englund’s daughter Salina provides lush backing vocals that
enhance the song’s dynamics even more. Ending on a quiet note, Theories of Emptiness depicts exactly
what emptiness is about, first with the immersive “Our Way Through Silence“, and then with “A Theory
of Emptiness” which, with timid piano, makes us rationalize our innermost feelings. Navigating realms
of darkness and light, Theories of Emptiness takes listeners on a carefully balanced roller coaster ride
- showcasing EVERGREY's ever-evolving sound in 2024 and beyond.
