Swedish theatrical Modern Metal band Avatar have dropped a new single and lyric video for the track “Valley of Disease!” The song comes from their upcoming new album, releasing in 2023 via their new label Thirty Tigers, under their own imprint, Black Waltz Records. More details to follow on the new record. In addition to touring North America all summer and South American dates with Iron Maiden, Avatar has booked a tour of Europe next winter with Veil of Maya.
The heavy metal ‘n’ roll, dark, madcap visionaries collectively known as AVATAR — vocalist Johannes Eckerström (vocals), guitarists Jonas Jarlsby and Tim Öhrström, bassist Henrik Sandelin, and drummer John Alfredsson — have emerged from deep within the Swedish forest in which they have been working on their ninth album to grace fans and listeners with a brand new song.

“There is a sickness, a stranger, and a harmful way,” says Eckerström. “A twisted landscape untouched by the sun. I leave the rest up to either you or me, but never both at the same time. You can only enter this place alone, and my path isn’t yours. Your secret is safe with me, but so is mine.”
