EDITORS’ NOTES

On their fourth album, Swedish goth metallurgists Tribulation explore the underworld with their most thrilling and cohesive package yet. Picking up where 2015's The Children of the Night left off, songs like "The Lament," "Nightbound," and "Lady Death" combine soaring guitars, vintage horror-movie ambience, and frontman Johannes Andersson's ghostly death-metal growl with postmortem themes to create something truly awe-inspiring. Meanwhile, "The World" and epic closer "Here Be Dragons" deliver rich cinematic triumph via strings, darkly elegant guitars, and chilling glockenspiel melodies.

A single hasn't got me this hyped for an album in a long time. Can't wait to see what else they have in store for us.

Quickly becoming a very big fan of theirs. Discovered them the last go round and couldn’t happier. Phenomenal Band!

About Tribulation

Not to be confused with an earlier Swedish band that produced a few crossover thrash releases during the early '90s, this new millennium group named Tribulation only formed in 2004, and spent the next few years experimenting with various extreme styles before settling on a speedy brand of death metal, embellished with horror-themed lyrics. Claiming to be influenced by '80s legends such as Autopsy and Morbid Angel, vocalist/bassist Johannes Andersson, guitarists Jonathan Hultén and Adam Zaars, and subsequently acquired drummer Jakob Johansson tipped their hand with 2006's Putrid Rebirth EP (released through indie Blood Harvest), then toured regionally before getting to work on their eventual full-length debut, The Horror, released in early 2009 through Pulverised Records. A sophomore effort, The Formulas of Death, arrived in 2013, followed in 2015 by Children of the Night, the latter of which saw the band eschewing the death metal approach of prior outings for a more occult-driven, goth, psychedelic, and traditional heavy metal oeuvre. The similarly progressive and theatrical Down Below followed in 2018 via Century Media. ~ Eduardo Rivadavia
