1. With a wealth of experience from internationally renowned acts, from former members of Finnish metallers Amorphis, to current members of Swallow the Sun, Moonsorrow, and Kreator, Barren Earth presents progressive and folk textured death/doom metal of the highest order.

    Barren Earth originally appeared in 2009 with the ’Our Twilight’ EP, followed quickly by their debut album, ‘The Curse Of The Red River’ (2010) on Peaceville. Both releases met with a rapturous reception from fans and critics alike, including awards for best new band and best album.

    Mixed by Dan Swanö (Opeth/Katatonia) at Unisound, ‘The Devil’s Resolve’ continues with all the trademarks one has come to associate with Barren Earth: brutal riffs, gloomy growls, majestic melodies, as well as acoustic and progressive passages. But this time the band has delved even deeper: what was brutal on the first release is now even more so. Likewise, they have raised the bar to a new-Progressive high.

    Never a band which likes to travel on the middle of the road, Barren Earth take you on a journey through musical landscapes encompassing brutal death metal, doomy vocals (including a guest vocal appearance by Mathias Lillmåns from Finntroll), trippy 70’s prog lunacy, pastoral passages and… bagpipes (courtesy of Jaakko Lemmetty from Korpiklaani) and then returning back to full-on metal mayhem again.

    Artwork comes courtesy of renowned artist Paul Romano (Mastodon). This special edition of ‘The Devil’s Resolve’ includes the exclusive bonus tracks ‘Martyrs of Devotion’ & ‘World in Haze’.

BARREN EARTH was formed in Helsinki in the autumn of 2007. This new ambitious, progressive death metal band was originally conceived in late 2006. With a head full of new, brutal, yet melodic songs, Olli-Pekka Laine(ex-Amorphis, Mannhai) asked drummer Marko Tarvonen (Moonsorrow), to form a new progressive death metal group with him. Around 2005 Tarvonen, keyboardist Kasper Mårtenson (ex-Amorphis, Ben Granfelt Band) and Laine played in a prog-rock project called The Camel Gang (influenced by The James Gang and English prog-rock band Camel), so they knew they already had the chemistry. Tarvonen agreed to go for it, Mårtenson and guitarist Janne Perttilä joined the band as well, and little by little things started snowballing towards the first incarnation of BARREN EARTH.
