TRIBULATION Release Fourth Studio Album ‘Down Below’
January 26th, 2018

Swedish death metal group Tribulation issued fourth full-length studio album Down Below on January 26th, 2018 through Century Media Records.

Drums were tracked in Soundtrade Studios in Solna, Sweden, with the band also recording at Studio Cobra in Stockholm with Martin Ehrencrona.

The band commented: “More than one year has passed since we did the last tour of The Children Of The Night. During this long period of silence, an intense creative process has taken place, and today we are proud to announce that our new album, Down Below, is recorded and ready to be released. It contains some elements from all our previous releases, but is also taking a step into uncharted waters.

“We would like to thank our producer and friend, Martin Ehrencrona, for the excellent time in Studio Cobra. We are very pleased with the results! Also, big thanks to the amazing Anna von Hausswolff who contributed with her beautiful and awe-inspiring vocal landscapes on one of the album songs as well as another piece that serves as B-side on the forthcoming Lady Death EP. We salute you both!”
