Dark Tranquillity - Lethe

Sunday, time for a classic!

Back in 1995 DARK TRANQUILLITY released a true classic of Gothenburg-style death metal with their second album “The Gallery” rounded off by a truly captivating Kristian Wahlin cover. A masterpiece of majestic melodic death metal!

From that album, we have picked one among many excellent tunes. "Lethe" is a true beauty, where the song name, if I'm correct is a river in Hades (Greek mythology) that the dead would drink from to forget all of their hardships in life. It also means to forget or lose memories.

"The Gallery", released on November 27, 1995. It was the first full-length release to feature Mikael Stanne on vocals, as he was previously the rhythm guitarist. "The Gallery" is considered a classic album of the Gothenburg style of metal, along with AT THE GATES "Slaughter Of The Soul" and IN FLAMES "The Jester Race", exhibiting the dual guitar leads, growled vocals and acoustic sections typical of the genre.

“The Gallery” was rereleased in 2012. Accompanied by a second LP incl. KREATOR, SACRED REICH, METALLICA, MERCYFUL FATE, IRON MAIDEN cover versions as well as an etching on Side B, this is a must-have collector’s item and definite edition of this opus for vinyl enthusiasts!

Enjoy today's classic!
