"Children of Stone" from "The Shadow Archetype" out March 10 on Metal Blade Records - listen/order options at www.metalblade.com/evocation

As with Evocation's past, "The Shadow Archetype" tackles topics that stem from vocalist/lyricist Josefsson's interest in control themes. Whether it's psychological issues, drug dependencies, sex, the media, or greater, more nefarious government-driven forces at play, songs on the Evocation's fifth full-length read less like teenagers into gore and horror movies and more like observations of a lettered adult. Even the title, The Shadow Archetype, is derived from Swiss psychologist Carl Gustav Jung's theories on psychological archetypes, where we, unwittingly, inherit both good and evil from our predecessors.

"It started on the 'Apocalyptic' album," posits Josefsson. "An idea of an evil empire with plans to enslave the whole planet. When we did the 'Illusions of Grandeur' album, we saw it from the other side, the evil empire's ideas on ruling and controlling. On this album the story starts where this evil force has taken over in the future. It's got a bit of a 'Mad Max' vibe to it. Only the dead will see the end of it!"
