AVATAR | Today Release New Song And Visualizer ‘So Sang the Hollow.’

    Heavy metal dark madcap visionaries collectively known as AVATAR — vocalist Johannes Eckerström (vocals), guitarists Jonas Jarlsby and Tim Öhrström, bassist Henrik Sandelin, and drummer John Alfredsson — are ambitious, Swedish metal sorcerers of the highest order. They are known to smash the boundaries between band, theater troupe, and cinematic masterminds with a series of celebrated albums, videos and the immersive world of Avatar Country, a fantastical land where metal rules supreme.

    Today the band shares ‘So Sang the Hollow.

    “I think the song fits the season,” vocalist Johannes shares. “‘So Sang the Hollow’ lives between a dream and our waking nightmares. It’s like a seance with ghosts of your own creation. It’s one of those songs that was a very long time in the making, with the main guitar part having been kicked around since I entered the workforce.”

    He finishes with an important point, saying, “It also answers the question what Simon and Garfunkel would’ve sounded like if they grew up listening to Black Sabbath.”

    Earlier this year, Avatar went big and dropped two new tracks. They shared the official video for “Going Hunting,” directed once again by Johan Carlén, alongside the fan track “Barren Cloth Mother.”

    Avatar also previously announced signing to Thirty Tigers including launching their own Black Waltz Records imprint
