“I Was A Soldier” EP
Out November 18th, 2013
Just having released their Lifeforce Records debut “At Every Door” earlier this year, HANGING GARDEN now return with their brand new EP “I Was A Soldier” being released as strictly limited 7″ (200 copies) and digital EP. On “I Was A Soldier” HANGING GARDEN keep on following the musical path they took with “At Every Door”.
HANGING GARDEN aren’t new to the Scandinavian atmospheric and heavy music scene. Being around since 2004 and having released two albums for Spikefarm Records – “Inherit The Eden”(2004) and “Teotwawki” (2009) – the Finnish group already introduced their view on depressive and emotional disturbing music that is based on the dualism of beauty and harshness. With“At Every Door” the sextet discovered an even more accentuated and distinctive mix of different genres including doom influences, melodic death, post metal and post rock as well as acoustic and folk quotations.
The third album marked a new start for HANGING GARDEN, because “At Every Door” was the first output with new singer Toni Toivonen, drummer Antti Ruokola and Jussi Kirves on bass guitar. And of course it was the band’s first record for LIFEFORCE RECORDS. The Finns do not follow trends and defy conventions.“At Every Door” and also the new EP “I Was A Soldier” are an apocalyptic view on the world dominated by humans and a balefully future. Even without noticeable velocity HANGING GARDEN create lasting impressive contrasts that affect their listeners in the innermost. There are hints of optimism, but overall listeners will undergo depressive and less confident music in between Cult of Luna and Sigur Ros.

I think there will be something for every fan of death metal on this album. You’ve got the lightning speed, technical proficiency, melody and thought-provoking themes. Two thumbs- up.

The Scottish band is known for having rigorous titles for their records that express the essence of the releases and the underlying attitude in short. Following “…Start Killing” (2004) and the two Relapse Records releases “The Human Condition”(2007) and “No Tolerance For Imperfection” (2009) MAN MUST DIE’s fourth effort and LIFEFORCE debut is entitled “Peace Was Never An Option”. This is both warning and promise!
