Get ready for an apocalyptic journey! March 3rd, 2023, will see Swedish melodic power/heavy metal act Kardinal Sin release their new studio album, entitled “S.A.L.I.G.I.A”, via Massacre Records.
Offering more complex songs as well as darker lyrics about the world situation now and then, and how we push humanity towards the apocalypse through war and environmental destruction – compared to the band’s debut – “S.A.L.I.G.I.A”, promises to feature more elaborate songs and arrangements, and is a musical journey through history from the Middle Ages to present.
Now, the band has shared a music video for their first single, “Siege of Jerusalem”, featuring Ellinor “Hellinor” Asp on guest vocals! Watch the new video below.
“This song is about the siege of Jerusalem in the year 1099 and how King Salahadin’s legions gathered outside the walls of Jerusalem and the anxiety of the Knights Templar holding the city. It’s a mid-tempo song with an Arabic kinda sound to it. Kardinal Sin are very proud to have the amazing voice of Ellinor ‘Hellinor’ Asp as a partner in crime to Daniel Wikerman, who gives the song that extra edge”!
“S.A.L.I.G.I.A” was mixed by Fredrik Folkare at Chrome Studios, and was mastered by Lawrence Mackrory (Obey Mastering). Slated to be released as CD Digipak, Ltd. Vinyl LP and Digital formats on March 3rd, 2023, the album pre-sale is now available here.
