I interviewed Mikael Stanne last week about about Atoma and his love for prog, among other things. What a nice guy! :)

Good song, but that wasn't a great video.

I had a quick listen yesterday, sounds really promising.
MS vocals are amazing, he's singing a lot more cleans on this and when they are mixed with the growls, no one comes close to him.
There's lots of melodies, some great keyboards, some cool riffs and killer songs.

I expected nothing less too  :metal

I'll wait to buy the album till the show this Sunday. Gonna be a good one too since its at an intimate place. Way better than when I first saw them as an opening act, that was like a sample. Now we get the full course.

Encircled is such a cool song. Stumbled upon it on Spotify today. Will definitely give Atoma some more attention.

Killer new song!
If this is anything to go by, then 'Moment' is going to be brilliant.

This was sad to read:


Quote
One of us is gone.

Fredrik Johansson passed away on January 25th after a three-year long battle with cancer.

He joined Dark Tranquillity in ’93, right after the recording of our first album “Skydancer”. He replaced me as guitarist so that I could focus on singing, and with that he raised the bar and set the course for what we could do and wanted to be. His influence and passion had an absolutely massive impact. The first song that we wrote together was something we ended up calling “Punish my Heaven”, and with that we knew that we were on a path that we up until then had only dreamed of.

Fredrik was mercilessly funny, sharp and highly intelligent, and would light up a conversation with his amazingly positive and quick witted commentary. But also, as easily, he would tear an uninformed argument or opinion apart with well articulated and thoroughly researched logic. His sense of humor and adventure would more often than not lead to epic excursions in stupidity and madness that I will forever miss.

Fredrik left the band in ’99 to focus on his family, yet he remained our biggest fan and our fiercest critic. His insights into the direction of our music was invaluable and knowing that he always listened and cared about what he had been part of creating meant the world to us.

A recent story, that speaks volumes about his personality, is when we launched the album “Moment” with a streamed concert in 2020. For weeks ahead of the release, Fredrik was on our Facebook page making sure that those who did not have access to a credit card or simply could not afford it would be able to see the show as well. By personally paying a ticket for those who weren’t able to, Fredrik made sure that no-one was left without. That’s who he was.

Having known about his cancer battle for almost three years and having dealt with the fact that this day would eventually come doesn’t make it any less real. We all still feel it. And we always will.
Living without you in this world will be radically different and not even close to as interesting and curiously fun as it has been with you in it. On behalf of the entire Dark Tranquillity family, we love you Fredrik and we will miss you forever.

We start our US tour today and by playing the songs that Fredrik wrote and helped create we aim to keep his name and musical legacy alive. He was one of us and we love him.
”It is what it is, and what will be will be” as Fredrik used to say might serve as a reminder that our time here is nothing but temporary and we should make the most of the beautiful personal connections we have and treasure the people that we have surrounded us with.

Tons of love from all of us to Fredrik's wife and three daughters.

Mikael Stanne and all of Dark Tranquillity

This is so much better than the last few albums!   :metal

Stanne is firing on all levels - Dark Tranquillity, The Halo Effect, Grand Cadaver.  Lots of great tunes from his bands over the last few years.

To me it sounds exactly like it could fit anywhere on Moment.  That's not a bad thing for me though, I thought it was really good.
