Anything that doesn’t sound dramatic won’t get on this album. With this clear vision in mind, THE SORROW, together with producer Toni Meloni (Caliban, Die Toten Hosen), ensconced themselves at the Principal Studios near Münster, Germany, in May 2010. Here, in these familiar and secluded surroundings, Austria’s most successful metal act had already recorded their first two albums, also under Meloni’s direction. In other words, ideal conditions.

The moment of truth has arrived for Andi, Dominik, Mätze and Tobi with their third, self-titled offering. Following the amazing success of “Blessings from a Blackened Sky”, a fantastic debut by this act from Austria’s Vorarlberg region who were still completely unknown back then, and “Origin of the Storm”, on which they perfected their sound, blending the essence of their creative work of that time, they are really getting down to business. THE SORROW have moved on to new musical pastures.

The band have learned from the creative process of “Origin of the Storm”, which was marked by tight schedules and high expectations. They have become totally independent in artistic terms, having embarked on a search to find themselves. The result? Their most impressive recording to date. THE SORROW – the album – is unusual, courageous and oozes a musical atmosphere from the first to the last note which is unequalled in today’s metal world.

THE SORROW have redefined themselves, remaining faithful to themselves at the same time. Their classic recipes have given way to an irrepressible urge to explore new terrain. The product of their labours consists of 13 unique songs which combine everything that makes metal great. The new album by THE SORROW not only sees the band break new ground – it also takes its listeners onto musical virgin soil.

"The Sorrow" is the last The Sorrow album, released by Drakkar Records.
