AVATAR have released the first two tracks off their LP

AVATAR have released the first two tracks off their forthcoming LP today. The songs “Regret” and “House of the Eternal Hunt” are being released in tandem.

“What you have is the beginning of the story and all the light and darkness of things to come!,” says frontman Johannes Eckström. “We meet our protagonist, Owl as she lies dying, looking back on the night that would be her last. Regret is about, well regret! Staring into the cold eyes of Death, she wishes to change everything, to go back, to live again. This leads us to House of Eternal Hunt. It is how things used to be; how they were supposed to be. That is how the tale starts, with a predator ruling the sky on the night that would turn out to be her last! With this concept and these tracks, we want to give you the past, present and, more than anything else, the future of metal as we see it. It is the beginning of an epic journey and we’re glad to have you along for the trip.”

AVATAR SONGSAVATAR will release their very first concept album titled Feathers & Flesh to be released on Friday, May 13, 2016 via Entertainment One (eOne) in North America and Canada and Another Century overseas. The new release will be the band’s highly anticipated followup to Hail The Apocalypse released in 2014, which cracked the Billboard Top 200 for the first time in the band’s career. 

The band is releasing their first song off the record in a very familiar way, a music video. “For The Swarm”can be seen exclusively on the band’s website. Directed by longtime collaborator and director Johan Carlén, the video pegs itself firmly into the upper echelon of stunning visual masterpieces the band has grown accustomed to producing.

With past works being buzzworthy videos like Bloody Angel,” “Hail The Apocalypse and the 2015 Loudwire “Best Rock video of the year” video for Vultures Fly,” AVATAR continues to raise the bar for what bands are doing visually in the current state of hard rock and metal. “For The Swarm” is also available as an iTunes instant gratification track, meaning fans who pre order the album today will get the track as an instant download.
