TRIBULATION – release new single and video: “Hamartia” – WATCH HERE!; Band kick off European tour with Watain, Abbath, Bölzer this week!
After earning a Swedish Grammis Award earlier this year for their critically acclaimed latest album Where the Gloom Becomes Sound (2021), Tribulation have now returned with a new standalone single and video: “Hamartia”.
A first recording to feature new guitarist Joseph Tholl, “Hamartia” was recorded with Robert Pehrsson, mixed by Tom Dalgety (who previously mixed Where the Gloom Becomes Sound), mastered by Magnus Lindberg and comes with artwork by Tribulation guitarist Adam Zaars.
“Hamartia” can now be streamed HERE; the video – which was directed by Johan Bååth & Astrid Bergdahl – can be viewed HERE.
Tribulation’s Adam Zaars commented about “Hamartia” as follows: “This is a song about the many shades of the word Hamartia. It’s an angry gothic tragedy sonically, and introduces Joseph on guitar. This is the first of a few. We hope you like it!”
After a successful run of festivals shows across Europe, North America and South America this summer, Tribulation will finally be back on the road starting this week, joining Watain, Abbath and Bölzer on the “Chariots of Fire” European Tour 2022. See below for all dates!

Tribulation’s latest, fifth full-length – Where the Gloom Becomes Sound – indisputably elevated the Swedes to the highest echelons and turned out to be their most expressive and inventive album to-date. “We immersed ourselves in the world of myth and magic,” says guitarist and founding member Adam Zaars. “With a specific focus on elemental magic, and the elements, in general, from both the Western and Indian esoteric traditions, not the Buddhist four elements but the five elements. Myth and magic are obviously not something new in the world of Tribulation, but it got a bit more specific on this album. We just present it from a slightly different perspective.”

Most recently, Tribulation also released the track “The Dhampir” this past April, as a final sequel to Where the Gloom Becomes Sound. The 18-minute opus, which is divided into 3 acts, was only previously available as a bonus track on the deluxe vinyl version; now, it can be streamed worldwide online here: https://tribulation.lnk.to/TheDhampir
