SEAR BLISS To Release 'Letters From The Edge' Album In The Summer

Long-running Hungarian atmospheric black metal band SEAR BLISS has signed with Hammerheart Records. The group, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary, will release its eighth album, "Letters From The Edge", in the summer.

SEAR BLISS vocalist and leader András Nagy said: "It's been a while since our last album was released. Many things happened... some good, some bad. Then, since the year 2015 things started to roll again and we built a pretty solid lineup. We had lots of live shows all over Europe and in 2016 we celebrated the 20th anniversary of our debut album, 'Phantoms', with a memorable tour. As the chemistry in the band grew, we went to an abandoned castle to write new songs in January 2017. Most of the songs of the album were written there, yet the recordings/mixing took nearly a year by the supervision of producer Viktor Scheer. The album was mastered by mastermind Dan Swanö.

"We have put an enormous amount of effort into these songs, and I know it's lame to say, but I do believe this album is going to be the definitive SEAR BLISS record. I know it, because I only felt this when we made our first album back in 1996.

"To me, 'Letters From The Edge' is kind of a synthesis of all what SEAR BLISS is about. 25 years of exploring our borders.

"We are glad to work with Hammerheart Records on this, a label we always respected."

Hammerheart Records' Guido Heijnens said: "SEAR BLISS is a band that has been around for over 20 years, and I have always kept an eye on them since their legendary demo. I have heard the new record and it is indeed their defnitive recording, a dark and heavy recording, powerful and memorable and anyone into bands as ROTTING CHRIST and TRYPTIKON will embrace it!"
