The German masters of dark folk metal, EMPYRIUM, have their comeback album, The Turn of the Tides, set for a July 18, 2014 release. Notwithstanding their creative break, The Turn of the Tides is an EMPYRIUM-album par excellence, although it bears strong testimony to the artistic and personal growth Schwadorf and Helm have undergone since 2002.
