Today, Svart Records announces the signing of HALLATAR.
The first fruit of this union shall be the band’s debut album, No Stars Upon the Bridge,
which is based on the lyrics and poems of Aleah Starbridge, and is
tentatively slated for release this autumn.
Although a brand-new name, Hallatar features among its ranks Swallow the Sun and Trees of Eternity guitarist Juha Raivio, Amorphis vocalist Tomi Joutsen, and former HIM drummer Gas Lipstick. In fact, one could see Hallatar as an extension of Trees of Eternity, whose massively acclaimed debut for Svart, Trees of Eternity, served as the swansong of vocalist Aleah Starbridge.
