Sweden's finest export of darkness, Evergrey, will celebrate their 30th anniversary with an anniversary album, titled From Dark Discoveries To Heartless Portraits, which will be released on December 15, 2023, via Napalm Records.
The album will be available in various formats, including an extremely limited 112-page hardcover book and digisleeve bundle (including rare photos and imagery, behind the scenes stories and exclusive liner notes from the members). It wraps up three decades of Evergrey's journey, carries some very special treats along with it, and cements their position as one of the most genre-defining bands of our time. From Dark Discoveries To Heartless Portraits unites Evergrey's past and present and paves the way for the band's next chapter.
Evergrey states: "Make sure you get a hold off the limited-edition book as we have worked intensely for months to gather all the photos and write all the stories for each of the albums. It's an insanely cool product to have and to remember all of these years together with us! Here's to another 30!"
In addition to live versions of recent tracks like "Call Out The Dark" and "Where August Mourns", the record travels down memory lane with "My Allied Ocean", "A Touch Of Blessing", "Recreation Day" and "King Of Errors". The second half of the offering contains soulful piano vocal versions of four songs from the latest full-length ("Save Us", "Call Out The Dark", "Blindfolded" and "Midwinter Calls"), and demo versions of the same tracks, topped by a instrumental version of "A Silent Arc".
