AVATAR have released the first two tracks off their forthcoming album Feathers & Flesh The songs Regret and House of the Eternal Hunt are being released in tandem.
“What you have is the beginning of the story and all the light and darkness of things to come!” says frontman Johannes Eckström. “We meet our protagonist, Owl as she lies dying, looking back on the night that would be her last. Regret is about, well regret! Staring into the cold eyes of Death, she wishes to change everything, to go back, to live again.
This leads us to House of Eternal Hunt. It is how things used to be; how they were supposed to be. That is how the tale starts, with a predator ruling the sky on the night that would turn out to be her last!
With this concept and these tracks, we want to give you the past, present and, more than anything else, the future of metal as we see it. It is the beginning of an epic journey and we’re glad to have you along for the trip.”
