A full track teaser for the song “The Black Corner” taken from THE CHANT’s upcoming album “A Healing Place” is now online.
“A Healing Place” is set to be released on August 14th in North America and digitally and on August 20th in Europe excluding Finland. The Digital Deluxe Edition of the album will contain 2 bonus tracks with a total of 12 minutes of additional material.
“A Healing Place” is the band’s third record and their first for LIFEFORCE. The majority of the songs were recorded by THE CHANT themselves and showcase a band going deeper into an even more complex and layered sound with unexpected twists and an arcane ambience. The Finns take their listeners into a place where they have to fumble in grey mist, before being able to see all the shades of colour. The agonizing sides of life have to be faced, before being able to clean oneself from them. The seemingly positive exterior of “A Healing Place” hides bitter and dismal moods.
With “A Healing Place” the Helsinki-based septet takes a stand as one of Finland´s progressive rockbands people have to be aware of. Based on a deeply atmospheric, almost cinematic sound THE CHANT rely on dreamy guitar melodies, spherical piano-playing and a remarkable voice. This album full of soundscape-driven, ambitious Rock music should please fans of Anathema, Paradise Lost, Katatonia, Porcupine Tree and A Perfect Circle.
