After the successful release of their highly acclaimed new full-length album “Atoma”, legendary Gothenburg melodic death metal pioneers, Dark Tranquility, were now nominated for the Swedish Grammis Awards!
Frontman Mikael Stanne comments, “We are honored that in a year of amazing Swedish albums our own ‘Atoma’ has been nominated for the Swedish Grammis awards. We are indeed in good company among the nominees and we cannot wait for the awards ceremony and the inevitable party afterwards!”
Dark Tranquility just recently announced a European tour with no less than Swedish heavy metal Vikings, Amon Amarth, and their Finnish label mates , Omnium Gatherum, and also some headline shows. See below for all dates. More dates will be announced soon!

Owr own George Terzakis wrote about the album in November: “this is a really good album. Everything that we love in the DT sound is here once again. The charismatic voice of Mikael Stanne, the excellent leads and melodies from Niklas Sundin and of course the keyboards of Martin Brandstrom, who is also the producer of this album, that give something special in their songs. The atmosphere of this record took me back to the era of “Damage Done/Character” and has great tunes such as “Force Of Hand”, “Atoma”, “Forward Momentum”, “Clearing Skies”.
