Sweden's TRIBULATION continue to promote their much acclaimed "The Children Of The Night" album, which was released worldwide in April of this year via Century Media Records. The album not only entered the official sales charts in Germany on # 42 upon release, but is already tipped as an "album of the year" contender by numerous high-profile media outlets.

Read on for a few worldwide reviews of TRIBULATION's critically acclaimed new album:

"2015's 'Album-of the-Year' contender." -- DECIBEL MAGAZINE (USA)

"...'The Children Of The Night' is the best album I've heard in a long time. And you can choose to stay outside, but this one is inviting you in, and showing you something you won't see anywhere else, something you might not see ever again." -- STEREOGUM.com (USA)

"... a dramatic work for lovers of a different kind of death." -- METAL HAMMER (DE)

"An album that blurs the lines between basking in twilight, and losing your mind in the abyss." -- KERRANG (UK)

"Fearless crossing over thresholds both musically and spiritually, TRIBULATION are becoming one of the most luminous bands in the occult metal firmament." -- METAL HAMMER (UK)

"In 1975, QUEEN released 'A Night At The Opera' by many regarded as the highlight of their career and a milestone in the history of rock. 40 years later TRIBULATION does the same for death metal with 'The Children Of The Night." -- GAFFA (SE)

"The strength to this album is the change between atmosphere and adrenaline, the opulent guitar work and over and over again the gaze into the abyss. Many have flirted with goth before - but it never sounded as convincing as on this album." -- DEAF FOREVER (DE)
