Avatarium are EPIC

Now this is only a short post, but I felt compelled to write after hearing the new project from Candlemass bassist and doom god Leif Edling. Avatarium are not Candlemass however, they have much more in common with the epic occult rock leanings of The Devil’s Blood or Jex Thoth.

Edling handles bass on this new record, leaving the melancholic guitar licks to Evergrey guitarist Marcus Jidell. Vocals are done by Jennie-Ann Smith, who I don’t know but her rich, powerful voice creates a sense of grandeur. This record is officially on my radar for the next few days, and by the sounds of ‘Boneflower’, it’s going to be a contender for my top ten.
