Beseech My Darkness, Darkness on Limited Edition LP
After some years in the shadows Beseech recently signed a world wide record deal with the Swedish label Despotz Records which will release the band's sixth full length album My Darkness, Darkness. Production of the new album began almost three years ago and the result turned out to sound more Beseech than ever, like a continuation of the highly critically acclaimed album Souls Highway, but with a more vintage oriented twist.
For a band that lasts over 20 years, some changes in the line up is often necessary. The new members are: Johan Örnborg (bass), producer/mixer at Fascination Street Studios; Angelina Sahlgren Söder (vocals), with experience from both theater and musicals; and Håkan Carlsson (drums), is rounding up the new line up with a more intense drum playing. The most obvious change is the third generation of singers. With Klas Bohlin and Angelina behind the microphones Beseech has developed a more country influenced way of singing with more space for harmony vocals.
The music is written by Klas Bohlin, Manne Engström and Robert Vintervind, combined and arranged with personal input from the entire band. The lyrics are written by Klas and can be described as a theme of stories from a desolated borderland, where we live in symbiosis with the darkness and the light. Constantly we want to be reminded of our good deeds and bright memories, while we are silent about the diseases, tragedies and losses.
