SVARTA SANNIGAR - New EP Out In May, First Video Trailer Released

Swedish post-rock/goth/metal band Svarta Sanningar will release on the 21st of May a new EP Kapitel 2, which is a stand-alone sequel to the previous EP Kapitel 1 from 2018. The band's music can best be described as occult post-rock with elements of goth and metal. Svarta Sanningar has also built an entire concept around a fictional backstory, which includes an occult order society with the same name as the band. Unique, incredibly well thought out and tickling. Do you dare to throw yourself into the darkness with Svarta Sanningar as your companions?

The overall experience of Kapitel 2 can be summed up as a horror movie on VHS and an H.P Lovecraft drama on steroids. The songs are extremely well-written, professionally produced and an obvious continuation of the dark drama that began with the first EP. Already on the debut, the band found their unique sound, but this time they have taken it all one step further. Everything from artwork to song structure is now even sharper and finely honed to perfection. If you are attracted to Depeche Mode in their darkest moments, you will love this. Other more obvious references such as Ghost and Opeth must of course also be mentioned, but to fully understand Svarta Sanningar you must listen.

The band's journey began in 2017 with two old friends, lukewarm beer and dinner at a Chinese joint in Gothenburg. The founder of the gothic metal band Beseech, Klas Bohlin (vocals) and Jonas Persson (guitar) were talking about music and vinyl records but were also a bit excited in founding a new band. Svarta Sanningar was formed shortly after in the city of Borås, when Mattias Lejon (bass) and Håkan Carlsson (drums/Beseech), became a part of the dark musical vision.
