Swedish melodic death metal veterans Dark Tranquillity have released a new track from their forthcoming new album, the highly anticipated We Are The Void. The track “Dream Oblivion” is available to listen to below, or at the band’s myspace HERE.
Stylistically, the melodic riffs are in tact played alongside haunting atmosphere initially. Vocally, Mikael Stanne remains coarse avoiding clean vocals entirely on this route. Keyboards sway with sharp and astute riffs which also stay rigidly in Dark Tranquillity’s comforted melodic territory. “Dream Oblivion” leaves promising expectations in its wake; it’s far from anything shockingly brilliant but certainly raises the bar for We Are The Void.
