Worldwide chart-toppers EVERGREY, masters of prog-infused dark melodic metal, break new horizons with their thirteenth studio album and Napalm Records debut, A Heartless Portrait (The Orphean Testament), out 20th May, 2022.

Today, after unveiling the pounding album opener and first single ‘Save Us’, and powerful second single ‘Midwinter Calls’, EVERGREY conjure another overwhelming episode on their ongoing journey. 

The third single, ‘Blindfolded’, hits with pounding drums and a flickering, synth-laden atmosphere. With its insanely grooving guitar solo topped by Tom S. Englund’s incredible vocals, the track marks the perfect gateway into captivating soundscapes. The upcoming EVERGREY album makes it apparent: Tom S. Englund keeps outdoing himself. In ‘Blindfolded’, his singular falsetto choices elevate the whole vocal performance to an outstanding level.

Leave what you know behind and get transported by EVERGREY’s enchanting new track. ‘Blindfolded’ is visually highlighted via a cinematic music video, closing the chapters of a three-video story and taking the listener to where it all started.

EVERGREY on ‘Blindfolded’:

“This is the third and last video of our trilogy. It features our acting debut that you shouldn’t take too seriously! It’s also really the first episode of this three-piece story. We hope you enjoy and share it and your thoughts about it.

Celebrating over 25 years of metal mastery, EVERGREY, led by founder, singer and guitarist Tom S. Englund, are known for wandering the realms of progressive and heavy melodic metal and painting sonic renderings with their twelve studio records released as of today. 

A Heartless Portrait (The Orphean Testament), the follow-up to the unit’s highly successful 2021 full-length, Escape of the Phoenix (which landed at numerous chart positions worldwide), reveals a 10 track mélange of which every note, every riff and every word seeps pure poetry – creating a ceaseless intensity that mesmerizes from the very first second.

The new album was recorded at Top Floor Studios Gothenburg, engineered by Jakob Herrman and produced by Tom S. Englund and Jonas Ekdahl, with mixing and mastering by Jacob Hansen at Hansen Studios (VolbeatDestructionEpica and many more), whereas the hauntingly beautiful album artwork was conjured by Giannis Nakos at Remedy Art Design.

Nakos is known for creating artworks for acts like Oceans Of SlumberAmarantheThe Agonist and The Crown as well as merchandise for Morbid AngelSuffocation or Cryptopsy – just to name a few.

EVERGREY on the new album:

“Here it is! A new album! Yet again! This is what we love about music, it never ends! Our mission is to write music so here you are! 10 new songs! 10 new EVERGREY songs that we hope you will have by your side as your life continues to shift and grow.

10 songs that we wish will be part of the soundtrack when you’re creating new memories and new possibilities in your life. 10 songs that we feel privileged to have you listen to. 10 songs that have risen through the ashes of two years where our creativity has had more time than ever to flourish.

10 songs we really hope you will enjoy as much as we did writing them. As usual we have given it our best and we can’t wait to hear what you have to say! A new year, a new album, a new record label = new possibilities. All this can only be positive, right?

 Enjoy!

 Tom, Jonas, Rikard, Johan & Henrik.

A Heartless Portrait (The Orphean Testament) impresses with flawless, meticulous production that deftly depicts both heartfelt honesty and scorching metallic intensity, while its instrumental force of furious, technically driven riffs, skyrocketing solos and dramatic synths merges with the expert, brooding vocal performance of Englund – one of the most distinctive vocalists in metal.

He skilfully balances harsh and heavy tones with an inarguably soulful approach, all topped by melancholic, thought-provoking lyricism that digs deeper with every spin, leaving a long-lasting impact. Songs like ‘Midwinter Calls’, which also contains fan participation with atmospheric audience recordings from the band’s latest tour through Sweden, and ‘The Great Unwashed’, draw the listener in with grooving, glistering instrumentation, flowing between boisterous dynamics and a next level vocal performance, while emotive ‘Wildfires’ turns the volume down as a goosebump-worthy ballad that hurts and heals all at once.

Call Out The Dark’ begins atmospherically with accented keys, suddenly evolving into an intense opus of symphonic and power metal attributes in the blink of an eye, whereas the record’s longest track, ‘The Orphean Testament’, impresses by revealing its heaviest facet.

A sensitive introduction lures the listener into ‘Heartless’, and offers one of the album’s most engaging verses, followed by a hauntingly beautiful chorus and variety in pace to create a magnificent listening experience.
