Dark Tranquillity: "Construct" out now!
Swedish melodic death metal legends DARK TRANQUILLITY has released their new album "Construct" today in Europe via Century Media Records! Decades after their inception, Gothenburg's DARK TRANQUILLITY remains at the forefront of the scene that they helped to define as one of the longest-standing melodic death metal bands. Their 10th studio album "Construct" continues in the tradition of their past records by not straying from the band's roots, while also putting a fresh spin on their trademark sound. After over 20 years together, DARK TRANQUILLITY yet again proves that they are more vital than ever.
The band comments: "Here we are! It's finally time for the worldwide release of our new magnum opus "Construct", and we're extremely proud and excited to have the album out in the open. The response to "Construct" has been overwhelmingly good. Several of Europe's leading metal magazines have given it top positions in their soundchecks, and the euphoric reviews are coming in on a daily basis, confirming that we succeeded in our goal to create an innovative and vital album that still has the unmistakable D.T. feel that we've cultivated for over 20 years. Well, we hope that you enjoy the album as much as we do. Play it loud and stay tuned for details on the upcoming tours to be announced soon!"
