TIMECHILD is a Danish progressive, heavy rock band formed in 2020 in Copenhagen. Their sound consists of a mixture of progressive rock and heavy metal, dominated by a powerful lead vocal and characteristic twin guitars, which together create their unique Scandinavian expression.
Since Timechild released their debut album “And Yet It Moves” at the end of 2021, things have moved fast for the new Danish band. Top reviews from both Danish and international media, Danish tours with Jesper Binzer (D-A-D), Thundermother and Artillery, concerts at some of the biggest club venues and rock and metal festivals in Denmark. And in 2023, the band will cross the country’s borders for the first time to go on their first EU and UK tours.
Now the band is back with their long-awaited second album “Blossom & Plague”, which will be released worldwide on September 1st, 2023 through Mighty Music. The vision with this record is to show how heavy rock can continue to challenge and surprise in 2023. The band’s heavy and dynamic sound and lyrics has taken a turn in a more progressive and dark direction on this record. Although the foundations of the band’s sound are clearly laid by the giants of the past, inspiration is drawn both across time and across genres. Precisely this opportunity to delve into the past several decades of music history and through this define their own sound has been an important part of the songwriting and recording process.
The artwork was developed by Travis Smith (Opeth, Megadeth, Katatonia, Avenged Sevenfold), who helped Timechild reach the perfect visual representation of the record.
The album is once again produced, mixed and mastered by Soren Andersen (Glenn Hughes, Phil Campbell, Jesper Binzer). With his vast experience within the genre, both as a producer and musician, Soren was a natural choice when the band’s new visions had to be brought to life. The result is eight strong and unique tracks, which broadly show the band’s dynamic range and artistic visions.
“Skillfully taps into the essence of hard rock’s greatest architects” Dom Lawson, Blabbermouth
