"Torn" was previously described by EVERGREY mastermind
Tom S. Englund as a "modern mix of 'In Search Of Truth'
and 'Recreation Day'." "The tracks are all
guitar-oriented and very atmospheric," he said. "They
have exactly the sound that our fans expect from us."
According to Englund, the slightly more experimental
direction of EVERGREY's previous release, "Monday
Morning Apocalypse", has given way again to old
strengths and virtues. "Two years ago we needed an
album with a slightly different approach and an
expensive producer, just to find out how that sort of
thing works," he explained. "It was the right album at
the time, but now we have returned to our typical
trademarks." This is one of the reasons why the tracks
on "Torn" were self-produced by Englund together with
drummer Jonas Ekdahl. In addition, the band has a new
bassist, Fredrik Larsson having been replaced by former
STRATOVARIUS musician Jari Kainulainen.
