2020 Round-up

Another year has almost passed! Not a year that any of us could have predicted. Who knew that the year would begin with a pandemic sweeping the world?
Our thoughts go out to everyone who has lost someone they care about.

Just before all this we released the maxi single Death of a King, featuring the string ensemble Malva Quartet performing two of our works. The single was well-received and was distributed to a number of select record stores, with hopefully many more to follow.

Our upcoming and delayed album Atlantis – in the oven for a good five years – is soon expected to enter postproduction, and as such it’ll be released in a not too distant future through Blue Spiral Records as a limited edition CD and digitally.

Additionally, Transit to York, a new single, is upcoming. It features vocals by British singer Samantha Horwill and with drums laid down by Dan Hemgren (The Moth Gatherer). As we principally write instrumental music, this marks relatively new ground for us. Exciting and inspiring!
The song is a laid-back, dreamy one, interspersed with some elements of art music.

And then, there’s also Valhalla Awaits, the second chapter in our Norse saga published by Venus Aeon

To mention some of what lies ahead.

A big THANK YOU to who has listened and purchased our music. Your support means a lot!

Maxi single “Death of a King”, out now!

The single holds two pieces of Western art music penned by the Swedish brothers, intimately rendered by renowned string ensemble Malva Quartet [Malvakvartetten]. The title track, bearing clear marks of Romanticism and the likes of past masters such as Mussorgsky and Elgar, has the bow-strokes cry out in matters of loss and mourning, albeit with an insinuation of acceptance and gratitude. The accompanying track, Ad Interim, is a traditionally composed minuet, offering a calm backdrop for reflections while concurrently acting as appropriate aftermath for the drama of the title track.

Cover artwork by Lars Krantz.

— Following the release of their compilation album Selected Early Works (Blue Spiral Records, 2019), this January will see the release of a limited edition maxi-single. Highlighting their unmistakable musical tone-language, the single will hold two pieces of Western art music penned by the Swedish brothers, intimately rendered by renowned string ensemble Malva Quartet [Malvakvartetten]. The title track, bearing clear marks of Romanticism and the likes of past masters such as Mussorgsky and Elgar, has the bow-strokes cry out in matters of loss and mourning, albeit with an insinuation of acceptance and gratitude. The accompanying track, Ad Interim, is a traditionally composed minuet, offering a calm backdrop for reflections while concurrently acting as appropriate aftermath for the drama of the title track.

The physical single will be made available to order exclusively from DMT Bandcamp, although a simultaneous digital release will transpire through iTunes and Spotify. Death of a King will be released on January 31st, 2020.

Pre-orders can be made one week before the release date, from January 24th.

2019 Round-up

Another year has passed! When looking back, we are delighted to have released the album “Selected Early Works” plus the remastered version of “Anton”.

Next up for the coming year is a maxi-single containing two songs performed by the Swedish string quartet Malva Quartet. Upcoming album “Atlantis” has been delayed for quite some time now, but we can garantee that it will be released in 2020 as CD and Digital formats on Blue Spiral Records. And the second part of the Norse inspired EPs on the Venus Aeon label, entitled “Valhalla Awaits”, is also still in production. To mention some of what lies ahead.

A big THANK YOU to everyone who listened and purchased our music. Your support means a lot! 2020 will be even better!

Interviewed by Doug Thomas

You have everything to gain from not restricting yourself too much. When we compose a piece of music, we never know from the beginning how exactly that piece will develop”.
