Northern Finnish metal band ETERNAL TEARS OF SORROW will release a two-song digital single, “Dark Alliance”, on February 8.

The single will feature the following tracks:

“Dark Alliance” comes off ETERNAL TEARS OF SORROW‘s new album, “Saivon Lapsi”, which will be released on February 22 via Massacre Records. The CD was recorded by Ahti Kortelainen and Janne Tolsa, mixed by Mikko Karmila and mastered by Mika Jussila. The cover artwork was created by Travis Smith.

In an interview with Headbanger’s Helsinki, ETERNAL TEARS OF SORROW guitarist Jarmo Puolakanaho stated about the new CD title: “‘Saivon Lapsi’ could be translated as ‘Child Of Saivo’.
