The following song — “The Coalesce” — is the opening track off the forthcoming album from Order of Isaz, the gothic metal act founded by former Tiamat bassist Johnny Hagel.
Called Seven Years Of Famine, the album will be released March 14 and was literally recorded over a seven-year period at the House of Voodoo studio.
Formed in 2009, the band boasts Tobias Sidegård, who was accused last year of spousal battery and subsequently fired from his gig as frontman for Necrophobic.
Hence, the controversy.
Order of Isaz are a band fans of Tiamat, The Sisters of Mercy, Fields of the Nephilim, Paradise Lost, Type O Negative, and Moonspell will certainly appreciate.
If you can forget those allegations, that is.
