AVATARIUM | UNVEIL MUSIC VIDEO FOR ‘THE STARLESS SLEEP’ AND ANNOUNCE EUROPEAN TOUR
“I love all the songs on the new album and I’m very proud of what we accomplished,” states guitar wizard Marcus Jidell. “But if I had to choose a favourite track with a gun to my head, I’d pick ‘The Starless Sleep’, because that song has so much 60’s vibe in it, but still sounds like nothing I ever heard before. I think that song really has all the ingredients that makes a great AVATARIUM song. It’s dark and poetic but with a warm, organic and heavy sound. AVATARIUM never sounded better then this.”
The video was shot in Stockholm and directed by Johan Bååth, who already produced ‘Pearls And Coffins‘ for the band’s previous album. Watch the music video of ‘The Starless Sleep‘

Once again, AVATARIUM rely on beauty and darkness, heavy guitars and fragile sounds, unique female vocals and the mystic vintage blues sound from the 60s, while still staying on modern ground and trusting into the haunting soul of doom rock. Six out of the eight new tracks were forged by CANDLEMASS wizard Leif Edling, but guitar master Marcus Jidell and singer Jennie-Ann Smith also contributed to the songwriting and formed a worthy successor to The Girl With The Raven Mask that topped multiple soundchecks in 2015 and brought them the ‘Up And Coming’-award from German Metal Hammer.
