Swallow The Sun release the new single and music video for »Enemy« taken off their upcoming album »Moonflowers«

Finnish death/doom metal pioneers Swallow The Sun release their newest single »Enemy« taken off their upcoming album, »Moonflowers«, which will be released worldwide on November 19th, 2021 via Century Media Records.

Compared to the dark and mournful »Woven Into Sorrow« – latest single release – »Enemy« presents the heavier and more dramatic side of the album without seeming less sad and gloomy.

The video was produced by Dronicon Films.

»Moonflowers« will be available as Ltd. Deluxe sky blue 3LP+2CD & Art Print Box Set, Ltd. 2CD Mediabook, Gatefold black 2LP+CD and digital album (incl. Bonus album) and can be pre-ordered HERE.


CD 1:
01. Moonflowers Bloom In Misery
02. Enemy
03. Woven Into Sorrow
04. Keep Your Heart Safe From Me
05. All Hallows’ Grieve
06. The Void
07. The Fight Of Your Life
08. This House Has No Home

CD 2:
01. Moonflowers Bloom In Misery (Classical Version)
02. Enemy (Classical Version)
03. Woven Into Sorrow (Classical Version)
04. Keep Your Heart Safe From Me (Classical Version)
05. All Hallows’ Grieve (Classical Version)
06. The Void (Classical Version)
07. The Fight Of Your Life (Classical Version)
08. This House Has No Home (Classical Version)

At 52-minutes, »Moonflowers« is an eight-song affair that drives deep into the heart of Swallow The Sun main songwriter Juha Raivio’s disconsolate soul. From the dramatic »Enemy« and the grim »This House Has No Home« to the delicate »Moonflowers Bloom In Misery« and the beauteous »The Fight Of Your Life«, »Moonflowers« is as rewarding and dynamic as it is accomplished and intimate. That it features Cammie Gilbert (Oceans Of Slumber), Antti Hyyrynen (Stam1na), and Trio NOX – who perform a re-arranged classical version of »Moonflowers« in a Finnish church, which comes as a bonus album to some of the album formats—are more reasons to hold Swallow The Sun’s latest leap into the unknown in the highest regard.
