Tribulation Shares New Live Video for “Strains Of Horror”

Swedish progressive band Tribulation will release their live concert package Alive & Dead At Södra Teatern via Metal Blade Records on November 15th. Recorded live at one of Stockholm’s oldest and most storied venues. Normally, this would be unceremonious, the band took a throwback approach to their early days as a more death metal focused band by having by ex-Nirvana 2002 vocalist Orvar Säfström, who also bedeviled the audience as master of ceremonies. Watch the video for ‘Strains Of Horror’ now!

The band comments, “We finally got to play ‘Strains of Horror’ again, something that’s only happened a couple of times before because of the heavy use of organs in it. And like the times when we’ve played it before, we once again had the help from our good friend – and great organist – Sofia Rydahl! It’s a song that goes back and forth between the serene dark depths and the wuthering heights, though it never quite enters those empyrean realms, luckily. It’s a journey in a way and it constantly lingers within those brooding shadows, yet brooding shadows still have their beauty, and because of this we felt that this was the song that was going to end the whole thing. We also wanted to give the fans something other than the more predictable songs for this single, and we can only hope that you all concur!”
