Danish band STATEMENT is back with their fourth and most uncompromising album to date which, like their last critically acclaimed album “Force Of Life”, was recorded in Medley Studios and produced by experienced Søren Andersen. With the same line-up as the previous album, Statement demonstrates their indomitable perfectionism after several long hours in the studio, with their heads deeply buried in the world of music in the culmination between hard work and enormous focus in further development – among other things with a more diverse songwriting.
”Dreams From The Darkest Side” is a heavy rock album that clearly expresses the band’s personality and unity. Based on the band’s recognizable cosmos, ”Dreams From The Darkest Side” carries Statement further into the facets of metal. An even higher range of flashy melodies and heavy metal elements characterise ”Dreams From The Darkest Side”, without the band giving up their iconic choruses and exuberant guitar solos in the span between rock, metal and emotional ballads. The lyrics are based on the band’s own depictions and experiences of life, with reference to the world we live in. Deeply personal tales of band members’ depression, demonic thoughts, the struggle to achieve dreams and the eternal search for love have brought Statement into the intensity and bias of fragility.
Set in the black hole of thought, ”Dreams From The Darkest Side” contains many emotions that make the album the band’s most cohesive and personal album to date. In this spirit, the band delivers with ”Dreams From The Darkest Side” an ambitious, magnificent and intense craft – a true Statement!
“Dreams From The Darkest Side” will be released on digital, CD, and LP (black/white splatter vinyl, limited to 300 units) on October 7th, 2022. Pre-order now:
