Dark Essence Records are today making available one more track from “Marrow”, the upcoming opus from Alternative Metallers MADDER MORTEM ahead of it’s 21 September release.

The track, “Liberator”,  can be heard below and is available to purchase and stream at as well as from all the usual streaming services

The band describes “Liberator” as being “Really a Madder roller coaster, a sense of urgency powering the soaring-then-plummeting changes of feeling and style, but with a meaty groove pushing it all forwards. It’s progressive in parts, but yet very melody-driven, and a perfect song for driving a little too fast.

“Lyrically, “Liberator” is a song about picking yourself up and going for what you want, no holds barred. It’s easy to lose yourself to the unending pressure to stay in line, but you need to shake off the grasping hands that would hold you back and fire on all cylinders. Life is short, and we all spend too much time on things that mean nothing to us. Don’t let the voices of “reason” get to you. Let the world end not with a whimper, but with a bang”.

“Marrow”,  the band’s seventh full-length album, finds MADDER MORTEM pursuing a heavier, doomier, but at the same time, catchier,  path.  It is a complex album, with Agnete M. Kirkevaag’s powerful vocals leading the way through eleven tracks that range freely over a variety of genres and soundscapes; from delicate ballads to powerful metal,  via folk/prog and a touch of the avant-garde.   It is this complexity, imbued as it is with all that is MADDER MORTEM, that makes “Marrow”  a very interesting prospect indeed.

According to the band, Marrow  is about “Sticking to the essence of yourself.  Your ideas, your thoughts, your values”,  and was produced by BP M. Kirkevaag, and mastered by Peter In de Betou at Tailor Maid.  With artwork by the legendary artist Thore Hansen, tracklisting for “Marrow” is as follows:

01. Untethered
02. Liberator
03. Moonlight Over Silver White
04. Until You Return
05. My Will Be Done
