New Release: Scandelion - When Everything Turns Black (April 2017)

When Everything Turns Black is the fifth release from Scandelion, originally based in the Canary Islands (Spain) but now based in London (UK). When Everything Turns Black is a conceptual album featuring an intricate story that takes us from the Middle Ages to a distant future, where Dualism and Transmigration of Souls play a decisive role.

The album was released April 23, 2017 and was mixed and mastered by Ancor Amador at Endelicht Studios.

This album, as with their previous release Nonsense, is packed full of epic gothic doom intricacies - brutal blast beats, soaring keyboards, grinding guitar riffs, savage male growls and angelic female vocals. It is an assault on the senses and one that I just adore.  I won't deny that since seeing Scandelion perform live in 2014 they have become one of my favourite bands, so this release is long overdue and much anticipated and it really does not let you down.
