(2012)

From September 2011 to February 2012 The Foreshadowing have completed their third act of apocalypse saga Second World, and it had been released on April 20, 2012 under Cyclone Empire Records once again.

Second World is a load with visionary and cinematic atmospheres combined with powerful doom metal riffs and promises to be the most ambitious album of the Italian band. The album has been mixed and mastered by Dan Swanö at Unisound Studios (Orebro, Sweden), while well-known artist Travis Smith has worked on the album illustrations and design. The recording sessions have been held at Outer Sound Studios in Rome with Giuseppe Orlando.[1]

Guitarist Alessandro Pace stated: "This is gonna be, without any reasonable doubt, absolutely metal. We worked hard to step forward and gaining our melodic side, while at the same time we wrote the most groundbreaking rhythms we ever played. This is gonna be an album with no compromises, it's gonna be a blast"! [2]

Keyboardist Francesco Sosto commented: "With “Second World” we wanted to demonstrate that our band knows how to use the work we did in the past, as the major source of inspiration for this work were our two previous albums. But we also wanted to add something new, like true Gregorian choirs and acoustic parts, and also tried to structure the songs in a different way from how we normally do, like we did with “Colonies”..."[3]
