Tribulation To Release New EP “Hamartia” In April, Premiere “Axis Mundi” Video

Tribulation will be releasing a new EP, titled “Hamartia,” on April 7. The effort will feature four songs including the title track, “Axis Mundi,” “Hemoclysm,” and a cover of Blue Öyster Cult’s “Vengeance (The Pact).” An official video for “Axis Mundi” can be found below:

Adam Zaars said the following about the new song:

“‘Axis Mundi‘ sees Tribulation entering The Machine Age through the lens of dystopian fiction in a journey to the centre of the world, and beyond. Being the first composition by Joseph Tholl (guitars), it offers the listener and the viewer a new set of flavours and hues to the palate, and from the palette that constitutes the egregore that is Tribulation. A new year calls for a fresh start, so please consider making this a part of the soundtrack to yours.”

He also added:

“The plan going forward is that Joseph [Tholl] and I will split the writing duties, just as me and Jonathan [Hultén] did before. The other difference this time is that we did work a bit closer with each other on these songs. On the last couple of albums, we’ve basically written our material separately.

This time, even though Joseph wrote ‘Axis Mundi‘ and I wrote the other two songs, I still went to Stockholm every other weekend for the entire Spring leading up to the recording, and we sat together and tried different things out. We’ve worked closer this time than we’ve done at least since ‘The Children of The Night‘. Comparing it to the last album, I’d say the new songs are a bit more cynical, harsher in a way.

Fairly soon, I hope we can record something – an album before anything else. In some ways, I’ve already started writing, but I don’t have a complete song to show anyone yet. I’ve got a lot of material, so we just need time to piece it all together…

We did a tour with Watain, Abbath and Bölzer last year and that was great, and this year we’re going to focus on festivals…and writing new material!”

Tribulation Premiere “Hamartia” Music Video

Tribulation have premiered a new video for their new song “Hamartia.“ The track is the band’s first to feature new guitarist Joseph Tholl. Guitarist Adam Zaars commented:

“This is a song about the many shades of the word Hamartia. It’s an angry gothic tragedy sonically, and introduces Joseph on guitar. This is the first of a few. We hope you like it!”

Tribulation Sign New Worldwide Deal With Century Media

Tribulation have signed a new worldwide deal with Century Media Records. Guitarist Adam Zaars commented:

“After this involuntary hiatus, this global societal and cultural hiccup, we are just about to return to the stages and as already announced, we have already started our next chapter. As of now, we have a few new songs recorded that will be released digitally later this year and on wax as soon as possible after that. It’s a Tribulation you will recognize, but in a new shroud with new tastes and smells. Angrier, darker, and a tad more cynical. We have also slowly started working on our next album that we will yet again release with our long-term partners Century Media Records, with whom we have now signed a worldwide deal. Make sure to catch us live this summer.”
