När Världen Gav Vika

Kategori: Allmänt


Haven’t really been motivated to do anything with this for the longest time. As you surely can tell with the latest entry being in February. But now with a new album; "Lust And Loathing" coming out in February and all, it’s inspiring times and probably time to break the silence.

Easter Promotion 2015

It’s been an awfully long process with the new album, not sure if we saw an end to it at all earlier this year. But once again we surprised ourselves and pulled through! And the result is remarkable. I mean really! It’s something extra this time around. I’m not going to reveal much, but you will notice it soon enough. 3 options are available as pre-orders (King Size, Queen Size & Unity Size) and can be found in the official web shop here.

"Lust and Loathing" Pack III - Unity Size

Roger, Rille and Henric did an amazing job in Hansen Studios together with producer Jacob Hansen. Here’s some pictures from my brief visit during one of the weekends:

In the cabin

Located right in a swamp!

"Home", "Survive", clearly different views of this food place. 

Of course Roland and myself did our share for the records as well. Together with producer Christian Svedin, we murdered in them vocals in Studio Haga.

We also did a bunch of vlogs from the recording, since people have been really eager follow the studio work. Hope you enjoyed what we put together for you!

This year we’ve had the album recording in full focus and took it extremely easy on the live gigs. But here’s a few pictures from the ones we did do, first out Kungsbacka in March:

We also did one festival gig north of Sweden (not north enough according to some fans apparently haha, sorry!) For this gig we got help from our good friends; Adam Sörbye (Smash Into Pieces) and Jonathan Thorpenberg (EMPRESS & Faithful Darkness), since Roland was on vacation and could not participate during this particular show. These guys rocked hard and it was fun day indeed!
