Around a huge summer that included a stadium tour of Brazil with Iron Maiden, an arena run with Sabaton and select festival appearances, Swedish Metallers Avatar have been working on their ninth studio album. No one can have expected a first single so soon but “Valley of Disease” has premiered, once again pushing boundaries as they did with “Hunter Gatherer“.
“There is a sickness, a stranger, and a harmful way. A twisted landscape untouched by the sun. I leave the rest up to either you or me, but never both at the same time. You can only enter this place alone, and my path isn’t yours. Your secret is safe with me, but so is mine.” ~ Johannes Eckerström
Avatar hit will be back in February with string of headline shows line up, support coming from Mastiff and Veil of Maya.
