Since their headlining ProgPower last year, Sweden’s Evergrey has weathered a many storm coming out victorious. In light of recent personnel change with bassists later, the band is more than happy with the ex-Stratovarius Finnish bassist Jari Kainulainen. The band also released a brand new record entitled Torn, which dropped here in North America on 23 September on their new label SPV/Steamhammer from long time label InsideOut. But what’s so amazing is the amount of units the band moved, pre-selling 20,000 limited edition copies through the band’s website! This time we chat with frontman Tom S. Englund as he explains the concept behind the newly shot video “Broken Wings” (which should air on MTV Headbangers Ball within the next week), the meaning behind the album, the band opening up for Whitesnake etc. Listen on as Mr. Englund engages us in this most educational conversation.
