The band comments: "The song 'Swinelord' represents our album as a whole particularly well. The lyrical theme dwells on a self-inflicted processes of dehumanization. A ritual guide to renouncing (killing) all that makes us human to become something else, a 'beast', free of all notion and boundaries - the ability to go further into the mist of the metaphysical. Embrace the dark, become the demon."

This Gift Is A Curse are simultaneously unveiling the artwork for 'All Hail The Swinelord', which can be viewed together with the tracklist below.

1. Swinelord
2. New Temples

Regarding their album, This Gift Is A Curse explain: "When entering the studio, we were determined not to repeat what was done on previous recordings - instead we wanted to broaden our spectra of sound, making it even more dark and vicious at the same time letting melodies have a place as well as suggestive drone soundscapes. To be able to push our boundaries even further, we borrowed hands from fellow musicians, whom we had gotten to know during the years. This album thus contains guest vocals by Lillie Lindahl (Promise and the Monster, Ştiu Nu Ştiu), Johan G. Winther (Scraps of Tape) and Christina lom (Agrimonia). Their talent added a new dimension to the songs and to the album as an entity. The name of the record is "All Hail the Swinelord", and the record itself is a thematic album about the self-inflicted process of dehumanization and the loss of all notions of what we consider existence. A metaphysical and ritual guideline for the crossing of the final threshold. Into the shadows, to touch His black crown… "
