Go to our site <http://www.metalblade.de/mp3/thearcaneorder/eruptionsofred.mp3>  and check out “Eruptions of Red” – a slower and more epic sounding song from the new THE ARCANE ORDER album “In the Wake of Collisions” to be released the 11th of January (G/A/CH/I) / 14th of January (rest of Europe). Commented the group: “The song shows a different side to THE ARCANE ORDER than you heard on ‘The Serpent Tower’. We chose to present this song to you to show you the other side of what ‘In the Wake of Collisions’ is all about. “‘Eruptions of Red’ is track number 4 on the new album and is a slower and very epic sounding piece of metal. On this track you can really hear how Kasper’s voice has evolved immensly and Morten’s drum playing is really exceptional as well.”
The CD  <http://www.roadrunnerrecords.com/blabbermouth.net/news.aspx?mode=Article&newsitemID=87598> was recorded at Hansen studio in Ribe, Denmark and is “not the natural follow-up to ‘The Machinery of Oblivion’ [2006],” according to Lund. “We always said we weren’t interest in just making a new ‘Machinery…’ album, and we think the new album proves just that. We have evolved as a team, as a band, and you will be able to hear so on the new album. We think it’s fair to say that we have found our own sound with the new album. You need to listen to the whole album, all the songs in a row, to understand what the new stuff is all about.

In other news “In The Wake Of Collisions” is album of the month in the renowned AARDSCHOK magazine from Holland (January/February double issue)!

UNEARTH update / new album / 3-DVD-set

2007 was another killer year for all things UNEARTH as we toured North America with metal legends SLAYER. We headlined tours in Europe, Australia and New Zealand for the first time, played the biggest European festivals of our career, brought our metal to the awesome state of Alaska for its live debut and finished off the year with a packed-out headlining North American tour.
2008 is already shaping up to be even better than ’07 with first time trips to Mexico and South America in January and February, respectively, the release of our three-disc DVD with a live concert disc and a full documentary DVD spanning our entire career (coming March 20, 2008). UNEARTH’s three-disc DVD set will feature the band’s October 9, 2007 concert at the Glass House in Pomona, California along with other live performances shot throughout the band’s nine-year career, as well as interviews, behind-the-scenes footage and other random happenings throughout the years. The third disc will be the CD of the full live show on DVD 1.
More worldwide touring and a brand new full-length UNEARTH studio album coming sometime this fall!
