Tribulation are a Swedish death metal band from Arvika that formed in 2005. In early 2009, the band released its debut studio album The Horror.[1][2] Their second full length studio album The Formulas of Death was released in 2013.[3] In 2015, they released their third full length studio album Children of the Night. Though their debut album sits firmly within the old school death metal genre, their later albums are a radical departure from this sound, drawing significantly on traditional heavy metal, psychedelic rock, gothic rock, as well as the occult and supernatural mythology.[4][5]
