Re release / Re Issue by Black Lion Records coming 2018
Original release date 29th February 2016

Media!

Sojourn is – by definition – a mixed bag, given the fact that they strung that one together from pre-existing material. With this album, however, Meadows End puts a refreshing, independent stamp on this somewhat dusty Death Metal genre. And this is – apart from some really good players – in danger to get buried in the soggy underground of this dark and smelly universe. But then the exceptions will always confirm the rules and Meadows End is one of them. - 7/10

Sojourn will reveal many secrets and subtleties that you didn’t even know existed within melodic death metal. It colors very liberally outside the lines such bands as Insomnium, Omnium Gatherum, and Noumena have established and others imitated, and it does it so convincingly that it’ll be hard to go back.

‘Sojourn‘ is an album that should not sit in the shadows. It is a grand listening experience for those fans of orchestral metal, and a unique listen for those that are fans of the classic Gothenburg metal. A full piece that could easily accompany a film in it’s full length.

Sojourn is a remarkably strong album. Neither too heavy-handed in its symphonic approach nor guilty of just using washes of string pad behind generic melodeath riffs, it achieves its goals of being a majestic yet indisputably heavy album. How Meadows End have gone this long without much coverage is beyond me, because Sojourn is a proper beast of an album. I promise that’s not a pun on the cover art. Okay. It might be.
