Avatarium announce album title, tracklist and release date plus reveal cover art for The Girl With The Raven Mask

Also announce European tour dates with label mates The Vintage Caravan

Swedish doom metal masters Avatarium are set to release their upcoming album, which is called The Girl With The Raven Mask, on October 23rd via Nuclear Blast

Bassist Leif Edling is really content with the result 'Think we have created something unique this time with Avatarium! The songs are more written to be just songs and there are some really nice moments on the record that I personally love... the straight forward title track, the beautiful January Sea, the riff in Ghostlight and the groove in Run Killer Run. The organ and the Rhodes piano are ridiculously loud in the mix at times, even Dr. Carl agrees hehe, but I think it gives even more edge to the songs! I hope people will dig TGWTRM as much as I do myself, and if they don't, it's their problem. A band can't deliver more than we have done here, so it is an album close to perfection! When an album is perfect...shoot me!' :-)

Guitarist Marcus Jidell comments as well 'Avatarium have been taking another big step with this album and I can't wait for people to hear the songs and to play them live on our tour in November! It has been a lot of work but also a great pleasure to be the producer of this album, I'm very happy with the result and I feel very proud to be a member of this powerful and talented band!“'
