Hanging Garden - 'The Four Winds' (official music video)

When the fire burns low
Embers in the searing morn
Pour the last cup on the dying pyre
For the four winds before setting sail

Oh north, there’s nothing here
These hills are quiet in their decaying sleep
The souls here have lost their spark
Lost their spark

East wind, rise brisk and tall
Take me away, take me far
Further still when upon the shore
Upon the shore

West, dear friend, remind me still
Where my spirit lies, and I will
Reside when my heart goes still

And brave south, bless my bones
When the trail weighs on my soul
And my fire’s about to die
About to die

When the fire burns bold
Embers in the smoldering dawn will glow
Drink the first cup by the roaring pyre
For the winds to take me far

West, dear friend, remind me still
Where my spirit lies, and I will
Reside when my heart goes still

And brave south, bless my bones
When the trail weighs on my soul
Breathe your life on my dying fire
My fire now alight

Hanging Garden για το τραγούδι - 'The Garden'
Μας έρχονται από την Φινλανδία και μας παρουσιάζονται κάπως έτσι: «While retaining roots in metal music, Hanging Garden possesses a versatile style of playing, drawing influence and inspiration from music and art».

Ο λόγος για τους Hanging Garden οι οποίοι έχουν κυκλοφορήσει επτά full length albums (συν έξι EPs, ένα demo και μπόλικα singles), με το όγδοο να βρίσκεται προ των πυλών. Φέρει τον τίτλο "The Garden" και αναμένεται στα τελειώματα του πρώτου ανοιξιάτρικου μήνα...

Δελτίο τύπου: «Hanging Garden formed in 2004, starting out as a heavy, doom-oriented project. Roughly two decades, seven albums and a couple of line-up shuffles later, the band shifted to a more melodic, contemporary sound, surrounded by a veil of melancholy.

The compositions are dark, atmospheric & emotional, and concomitantly lean towards open-minded and playful musicality. While entrenched in metal's doom, gothic and melodeath branches, Hanging Garden displays a versatile, many-layered style of playing, packs female & male vocals, and draws influence & inspiration from music and art, far and wide.

The new album - "The Garden" - dives deep into atmospheres both "tender and harsh, devilish and serene" and "embarks upon a journey to mankind's spiritual roots, contemplating the fragility of our technological society" - as poetically described by the band.

"There is a kind of energy in the songs that there wasn’t before," introspects Toni Hatakka of Hanging Garden. "A feel of hope to contrast our old friend the despair, a strong notion of action against the familiar melancholy, or maybe a light amidst the comfortable gloom."

"The Garden", the follow-up to "Skeleton Lake" (2021), was produced by Jussi Hämäläinen (vocals, guitars) and Jarno Hänninen. The album was mixed and mastered by the latter at D-studio (Beherit, Shape of Despair).

Cover artwork and new band photos are by Finnish artist Kalle Pyyhtinen. "The Garden" marks the return of new-old drummer Antti Ruokola, last seen in Hanging Garden seven years ago. Hanging Garden may appeal to fans of Swallow the Sun, Ghost Brigade, October Tide, Katatonia and Type 0 Negative.»
