In April our release show here in Umeå was cancelled because the outbreak of Covid-19. Now we are very pleased to have the opportunity to connect with our fans from around the world for this special evening.paypal.me/moloken
The good people over at Metal Injection presents our new animated video for our new single Unbearable. The video is created by our friend and amazing artist Costin Chioreanu
Check it out!
“I can assure you that this madness only hints at what the band get at in their masterful upcoming full length, Unveilance Of Dark Matter. ‘Unbearable’ is a track that defies expectations. It routinely proves that Moloken know exactly how they are going to blow your mind.” – Matt Bacon, Metal Injection
“Surcease” is the first single taken from our fourth album “Unveilance of Dark Matter”, set for release the 31st of January 2020 via The Sign Records.
Released with a music video, the single is one of the shortest and most direct songs of the upcoming album, combining uncompromising modern hardcore influenced metal with overloads of melodies and despair.
Ten year celebration with special merch
We are celebrating ten years as a band and therefor we have some exciting stuff for you.
We have made some new merch coming up soon in our webshop and we have 2 shows coming up in Umeå and Luleå.
Old recording from 2006, previously unreleased
So it is finally time to reveal this gem. As part of our ten year celebration we hereby present a recording from 2006 that I (Kristoffer) recorded during the time when Moloken was still my side/solo-project from The Pookie Syndrome. I wrote songs between 2002-2006 but this is the only real recording I made.
This has never been released publically until this day. And as you will discover it is somewhat different from what we have achieved as a band, but still I was beginning to find my way as a songwriter. It is 6 quite short songs, but they are meant to be listen to as a whole.
Thanks to Raymond Ohlson, Marcus Lidman, Dag Falkman and Sven Engdahl Hamilton for your participation in the music and/or production.
This song is indeed a very special song. It’s the last song of our new album, ending something and starting something else.
It was first recorded as a demo track back in 2008 by me and our previous guitarist Johan Öman. Then it only consisted of 2 guitar tracks.
It wasn’t until the fall of 2013 when I had an epifani to call Frida Johansson (folk musician from Umeå) and asked her to add violin since I had just presented to the band that we could use this song as the ending track of our new album. But it wasn’t until when we entered Tonteknik Studio with Pelle Henricsson in february 2014 everything finally fell into place. Frida came by the studio heavily pregnany, laid down her track and didn’t even spend more than 40 minutes in studio (such a pro), and last but not least Patrik Ylmefors recorded the apocalyptic guitar loop that ended the song.
The video was filmed way back in 1967 by my grandmothers brother Rolf. And its clear that the he was a creative and artistic person with an eye for image composition.
Special thanks to Johan Norström for editing the video.
Thanks to Mathijsen MacLennan and Spencer at Heavy Blog is Heavy for premeiring it for our US/EU crowd!
Thanks to Christoffer Jonsson and Hymn for doing the same for our Swedish crowd.
Upcoming swedish tour!
After our great success with our releaseshow at House of Metal Festival and our european tour supporting Cult of Luna, it feels logical to follow up with some great swedish shows. Below are the confirmed dates, more will follow!
