SKOGEN - Presents First Track From Upcoming Album

Swedish purveyors of blackened folk metal Skogen make their awaited return this year with the impending release of their 5th album, Skuggorna Kallar, on 25th May with Nordvis. Today, the band has released the record’s first new track, “När Solen Bleknar Bort” and you can give it a listen in the player below.
Speaking about the thematic elements of the upcoming record, the band states: “All the tracks are about when the northern darkness and/or winter swallows the sun. In one way or another. Death, and the tranquillity it brings.”
Under a frozen Swedish moon, Skogen have their sonic pentagram of albums in homage to the stark, nebular beauty of their motherland. Theirs is a blackened folkish metal possessed by the mysteries of nature and dedicated to paying homage to its majesty, both in light and darkness. This polarity is felt in the music as subtly beautiful melodies and clean vocals are woven into the more pervasive darker tones that saturate Skuggorna Kallar, like the blanket of night, heavy with dew. You could say that it is simultaneously the band’s most complete and darkest work to date. Link
