We Are The Void

We Are The Void is the ninth studio album by Swedish melodic death metal band Dark Tranquillity.

The album was written almost a year prior to its recording.[3]

On 10 February 2010, a music video was released for "Shadow In Our Blood" which was filmed in Finland.

As of February 19, 2010, the entire album is available for free streaming on the band's MySpace page. [4]



Regarding the musical direction of the band's new material, the band previously said,

It's a bit too early to delve into details, but the material feels diverse and fresh and covers all the facets of the Dark Tranquillity sound. Those who are familiar with our songwriting process know that we always keep re-arranging and experimenting with the material until the recording starts, and while we currently have the basic foundations for around 10 songs, many things are still open. The final result is likely to surprise ourselves as well as you people."
