Evocation: launches studio report for new album, 'Illusions Of Grandeur,' online
Swedish death metal overlords EVOCATION will release their fourth studio album, Illusions Of Grandeur, on September 24th in Europe and on October 23rd in North America via Century Media Records. Illusions Of Grandeur is the band's first studio album for their new label and further proof of why the five-piece band from Borås has become a leading force in the death metal scene. The album includes 10 tracks of supreme Swedish death metal, a perfect mélange of Stockholm rawness and Gothenburg epics.
