Can you believe that Dark Tranquility have been around for 20 years already!? In celebration of the 20th anniversary of Skydancer, these Gothenburg-ers are releasing a re-mastered version of their debut effort. The band has made the following statement about the release:
This truly makes us feel old! “Skydancer” is a weird and quirky album that stood out like a sore thumb in the early ’90′s metal climate. Most people didn’t quite know what to make of the complex instrumental arrangements, acoustic guitar interludes, clear vocals and the shameless focus on melodies, but the reviews and general reception were stellar, and in hindsight the album proved to be a starting point for many great things to come. Here’s to the next 20 years!
A stream of the re-remastered release can be heard below. Fans can purchase a digital copy of the album here, or wait until they release the CD/LP versions; which are currently in the works.
