Swedish goth rock unit TRIBULATION return to deliver Where The Gloom Becomes Sound, the follow-up to 2018's acclaimed Down Below. Arriving in January 2021 via Metal Blade Records (North America) and Century Media (worldwide excluding North America), the band's fifth full-length finds them exploring imaginative soundscapes that take their somberness to new depths.

TRIBULATION comment on the new record:

"'Down, further down, Where the Gloom Becomes Sound...', Anna-Varney Cantodea once sang in a previous millenium, in a different world. And further down than 'Down Below' we went with this one. The album is a sombre one, filled with ghastly shadows and elemental magic - a mythological bestiarium vocabulum ranging from the desert sands to the midnight sun, from our murky prehistorical past to our potentially luminous futures. Figuratively, literally and musically. We worked together with producer Jamie Elton to create something wild and imaginative, something that would take the listener on a nightly adventure along with Fernand Khnopff's enigmatic sibyl on the cover and with all the gods and goddesses, nymphs and demons that we conjured up during the recording. As an icing on an already frosted cake we had the help of Tom Dalgety for the finishing touches."

In addition to the new album, TRIBULATION have scheduled a European trek alongside a strong ensemble of bands, that being BØLZER and MOLASSES. Stay tuned for music samples to come and check out the tour dates/poster below.
