Avatar has a last-minute addition to your Halloween playlist.

The Swedish metallers have dropped a new song called “So Sang the Hollow,” which frontman Johannes Eckerström describes as “what Simon and Garfunkel would’ve sounded like if they grew up listening to Black Sabbath.”

“‘So Sang the Hollow’ lives between a dream and our waking nightmares,” Eckerström says. “It’s like a seance with ghosts of your own creation.”

You can download “So Sang the Hollow” now via digital outlets.

Avatar just released two new singles, “Going Hunting” and “Barren Cloth Mother,” in September. The band’s most recent album is 2020’s Hunter Gatherer.

In other news, Avatar has rescheduled a group of tour dates that were postponed this month after Eckerström tested positive for COVID-19. The shows will now take place in January and February 2022.
