ARKAN - New Album Announced2014-03-03
France-based Algerian Oriental metallers ARKAN have revealed the title of their upcoming album, which will be called "Sofia". The band's third album will be released on 23rd May in Europe and 27th May in North America through Seasons of Mist. "Sofia" has been recorded at Studio Fredman in Gothenburg, Sweden.
The band's vocalist Sarah says: “The album deals with a personal ordeal one of the members of ARKAN had to go through”. She added: “From my point of view, ‘Sofia’ has multiple meanings. From pain to revolution, the struggles end with the quietness of a heartbeat and ‘Sofia’ slides from sadness to peace. While ‘Salam’ was an open-minded concept-album, ‘Sofia’ deals more with the sad side of our histories.”
"Sofia" cover artwork and track listing will be unveiled soon.
