‘Gjennom Meg Går Ingen Til Hvile’
(Norwegian Black Metal)
Release Date: January 21, 2022
FFO: Myrkur, Cradle of Filth, Dimmu Borgir
The music available on “Gjennom meg går ingen til hvile” is in the style of the band’s previous two singles. The album features a pretty big roster of session musicians, even more than on the first two singles. Some are amateurs, some are more known people.
Stein Akslen has done extensive field-recordings out in nature to supplement the compositions on the album. He comments: «That had me sleeping outside in the forests for a few nights to record an owl, and all other sounds – including wolves – are real. There are no samples at all on the album.
He adds: «In total I have been working on this album for about 6 years now. There’s a lot of memories tied up on it, and it will be dedicated in loving memory to those we have lost. Some of the lyrics on the album actually dates back about 17 years, so I’ve used this album to really go full circle.
Produced and mixed by Stein Akslen at Hagall studios.
Recorded on various locations throughout the world.
All field-recordings done on location in Norway.
Mastering by Niklas Kveldulfsson.
Så kald en jord
