Monday Morning Apocalypse!!!!!!!!

EVERGREY: New Album Title Revealed - Jan. 24, 2006 Swedish metallers EVERGREY have set "Monday Morning Apocalypse" as the title of their sixth studio album, tentatively due late March/early April via InsideOut Music. The follow-up to 2004's "The Inner Circle" was recorded at Division One Studios in Gothenburg, Sweden by the experienced production team of Sanken Sandquist and Stefan Glaumann, who have previously worked with such artists as RAMMSTEIN, BON JOVI, BRITNEY SPEARS and DEF LEPPARD. Songtitles set to appear on the CD include "Monday Morning Apocalypse", "Unspeakable" and "At a Loss for Words".

As previously reported, EVERGREY have been nominated for a Swedish "Grammy" in the "Best Music DVD" category for their "A Night to Remember" set, which came out last year. Other nominees in the "Best Music DVD" category are ABBA, CORNELIS VREESWIJK, MARIT BERGMAN and TIMBUKTU.

"A Night to Remember" (preview) was filmed on October 9, 2004 in Gothenburg, Sweden with 15 high-definition cameras by video producer Patric Ullaeus (LACUNA COIL, IN FLAMES, DIMMU BORGIR) and includes all six of the group's videos to date. A second DVD disc includes backstage material, in-depth interviews with each of the members, gear-talk, live material from the beginning of their career, festivals, old demo songs and tons of pictures.

The "Grammis" awards ceremony will be held on February 7 at Cirkus in Stockholm and will be aired live both on national television (TV4) and radio (P4).

EVERGREY recently signed a new one-album deal with InsideOut Music. The band also participated in the kick-off party for the Sweden Rock Festival at Annexet in Stockholm on December 3, 2005.

Am I the only one disappointed with the title? It seems like something some pop punk, or shitty emo band, or some shitfest of a nu-metal band would name their album.

Of course I'm not going to let the name of the album keep me from having high hopes for the album, it is still Evergrey after all.

Let's just hope the new album doesn't resemble "The Inner Circle" musically in any way.

Yeah, I'm gonna have to agree with DragonOfBlood here...that title is crap. Monday Morning Apocolypse? Sounds lame. It really doesn't sound like an Evergrey title...yanno? Sounds too cheesy :-/

I just hope the songs are good.

(Note: IF the production team had anything to do with this, I'm going to assassinate them.)

Cool- news. Sounds interesting. I'm gettnig a bit of a RD vibe from the song titles. Good luck to EG and their fans with this one.

Where have there been song titles? I missed them if they're on the site here anywhere....maybe they were mentioned in the past. What are they?

I'm not a huge fan of the title, but I don't hate it. Titles don're really mean anything anyway though.

I'll agree that it does sound a bit inappropriate for Evergrey, but I'm sure it won't matter too much...it didn't with Recreation Day after all.

Album title=really bad

Hopefully the album will be somewhere there with RD in quality and variety and not with TIC.

Agreed.

The Inner Circle gets boring after multiple listens.

Somebody on a board I frequent made mention that the noted release date (April 4) was the same day that Martin Luther King was assassinated.

It's a bit of a stretch, but is that the topic being discussed here for the album?

I'll reserve judgement until I hear the album, but I also am not feeling the title...nor am I feeling the front page of the site. The Inner Circle theme was sweet.
PS How could anyone say TIC gets boring? In fact it grew more and more interesting and exciting with each listen. Doesn't every Evergrey album though?

How is "The Inner Circle" boring? How about almost every song has the same open E riff chugging over and over again. It's monotonous and boring.

Recreation Day is a completely different song every time the track changes over, it's a great album, just like every other Evergrey album, (except for The Inner Circle, which is average).

im excited, but the title sounds like something Dimmu Borgir would come up with...not that there's anything bad with that.

The guy who thought of it is thinking he was. Like I said, it's a stretch, but it's an interesting observation.

Rikard and Jonas were the best things to happen to EG after Michael and Hank.

It just so happens that TIC was not good. It was good musically, but just boring. I got it as my first EG album, listened to it a few times, put it aside and almost didn't buy any other EG albums because I was afraid they would be boring, too.

It was boring to you. I don't find it boring at all and I've listened through it many many times. It is true that the riffs and general sound of the album is a little simpler than the past albums. This does't equate to less interesting for me, but I can see how it might for some.

Back to the title thing though....I would tend to agree with people who didn't like Recreation Day for a titlle. Thinking about it now is different because I love the album. I got into Evergrey when RD was new, and when I first heard the title I thought it was a little odd sounding. I think it just goes to show the name doesnt indicate how much I'll enjoy the album.

I think they should just put a few samples up to settle it once and for all! Anyone with me on that?

The same open E riff huh. Rethink your guitar dynamics, and yes I do realize that you're exaggerating. There are way too many other elements to the album than just riffage which makes it a very not boring release. To each his own I suppose...

Didn't see me speaking for anyone else, especially you, did I, oh greatness?

Glad you didn't find it boring, stop making like I insulted your mother and enjoy the album, especially since your post means nothing since you acknowledge how it might be boring for some.

Unless you're a native english speaker It's a good title but it sort of has an accidental double meaning that is rather humorous.

Incidentally I think it's their most diverse (perhaps best) album. TIC is good but not my fav.

I think the only reason the new title sounds in any way "emo" is because of emo bands making so many stupid titles stringing random words together like "My Bleeding Death Pants" or "As I Bleed From Death" they really like prepositional phrases without context. I think if the album's theme is appropriate Monday Morning Apocalypse is a fine title. Looking foreward to the album.

Ps. Hi, I usually lurk in here from time to time and post regularly in other UM forums.
