Avatar Ages – An Impossible Concert Experience, debuted January 9 to rave reviews from media and was watched by fans across the globe. The 4-part online concert stream series from Avatar—Sweden’s most creative and exciting export—started with Age of Dreams, featuring the band’s Hunter Gatherer album from start to finish, plus Avatar‘s biggest songs. Age Of Illusions, the second streaming event in the series—co-produced by Danny Wimmer Presents—premieres this Saturday, January 16 and will feature a fan-selected set list from Avatar‘s Feathers & Flesh and Avatar Country albums. Each Avatar Ages upcoming concert film experience will feature fan voted set lists—chosen by ticket purchasers—with songs from Avatar‘s celebrated catalog: Avatar Country, Feathers & Flesh, Hail The Apocalypse, Black Waltz, Thoughts of No Tomorrow, Schlacht and Avatar.
Avatar‘s current album Hunter Gatherer, out now via eOne, marked the darkest and most thought-provoking release of the band’s over decade long career. A striking and bold manifesto, the album is an unflinchingly ruthless study of a clueless humankind’s ever-increasing velocity into an uncertain future, furthering the reach of the band’s always expanding dark roots. The band’s ambitious new era found the band featured as the cover story of Revolver Magazine’s Fall Issue, where frontman Johannes Eckerström reflects about the power of live performance during a year that has changed the landscape of live music. In 2019, Avatar reunited with producer Jay Ruston (Stone Sour, Anthrax) at Sphere Studios in Los Angeles, California, where the foundation for each song on Hunter Gatherer was laid with the band performing altogether, as they’d done only once before, on Hail the Apocalypse(2014). The old-school method of playing as one in the studio, more akin to how they are on stage, captured the essence of Avatar. Recorded entirely to two-inch tape, Hunter Gatherer exhibits everything that makes Avatar standouts in the vast, rich landscape of heavy metal’s past and present.
