Gothenburg melodic death metal pioneers, DARK TRANQUILLITY, have now released a video for the song “Forward Momentum”. You can watch it here:
The video was filmed in the far North of Sweden near Kiruna by Vesa Ranta (ex-Sentenced, The Man-Eating Tree drummer) and directed by Harri Haataja. Vesa Ranta and DARK TRANQUILLITY already share a long history. Niklas Sundin created the cover artwork for the Sentenced album “Crimson” back in the year 2000 and both bands toured together shortly after. In 2008 DARK TRANQUILLITY honored their friends with a cover version of “Broken” on the 20th Anniversary compilation of their label Century Media.
On November 4th, 2016, DARK TRANQUILLITY will release their 11th album "Atoma" worldwide through Century Media Records.

SOULBURN vocalist/bassist Twan van Geel checked in with the following comment about the track: “We are proud to present you the opening track from our upcoming album 'Earthless Pagan Spirit'. This song is a classic ode to the supremacy of the blackest of Metal. 'Where Splendid Corpses Are Towering Towards The Sun' ravishes straight through the high hopes of a self-proclaimed righteous people and their plastic vanity.

Finnish melodic death metal act OMNIUM GATHERUM has just signed a deal with Century Media Records! After already having signed the band with their latest album “Grey Heavens” for North America, Century Media Records is now going global and will release the upcoming albums worldwide!
Guitarist Markus Vanhala: "We're very loud and proud to announce Omnium Gatherum signing to one of the leading legends in metal, Century Media Records! Last years have been really good for OG and joining CM tour de force is a natural next step on our path to limelight and glorification. I've known Jens and the good staff of CM many years and I know they're hardworking, honest and very nice people to hang out, so we're very much looking forward to this shiny partnership! We wanna send out our biggest thanks and respect also to Mr. Stefan Lüdicke and Lifeforce Records for saving us back then and doing a really good job for the band many previous years. May the force be with us all & many good evil things to follow!"
Jens Prüter, Head of A&R: “It’s already 7 years ago when we first met at legendary show in my 'live living room', the Turock Club in Essen, Germany. Swallow The Sun, Insomnium and Omnium Gatherum was the dream package for every fan of dark metal! We stayed in contact over all the years and I’m really happy that we now can complete the trio of this very remarkable night. The last Omnium Gatherum album 'Grey Heavens' turned out to be a high point of their almost 20 year long career and we all know that the band will continue to grow. I want to thank my friend and OG founding member Markus Vanhala for the trust in Century Media and I would also like to thank Stefan Lüdicke from Lifeforce Records for the great work on the last 3 albums!”
