The 6 Finns of SWALLOW THE SUN from Jyväskylä, publish in year 2019 now their 7th full lenght album since their foundation in 2000. ''When Shadow Is Forced Into The Light '' is not only a must have for any Doom/Death Metal fan, but with its many quiet passages & clear vocals it should also delight anyone looking for melancholic Post Metal sounds. Although the darkness invoked in the band name has so far been mainly poetic, this time its specific true, inasmuch as singer Aleah Stanbridge, who is to hear on some albums by the band, died of cancer. Guitarist Juha Raivio experienced death at close range, mourned, had to reorganize his life, and now lets everyone participate in this difficult process with the album ''When A Shadow Is Forced Into The Light''. In the foreground are the fragile moments and the gentle melancholy due to the theme. Thus SWALLOW THE SUN deliver their most personal work so far, even though the writing was difficult and the album weighs heavily when listening, there are now 8 unique songs to push themselves out of the dark and his involuntary voluntary hermitage. First edition im comes in digipack.
