Sweden’s ELDRIMNER has released a music video for its single “Undergången” at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0K0sFYzOevo. The track comes from their debut album Inom förloppet av ett liv which was released digitally on October 12th, 2012 via Pivotal Rockordings. The band’s first two singles from the album, “Livsflykt” and the self titled track “Inom förloppet av ett liv” (feat. Axel Widén of ZOMBIEKRIG) can also be heard at https://soundcloud.com/pivotalrockordings/.
The band commented on the video:
“The whole concept of the video is the life of the protagonist of the album. We felt the song was a fitting synopsis for his story and decided to use “Undergången” because it carries a memorable tune and story. Jimmy Olausson (ENGEL) had shown interest in us and asked us one year ago if we’d like to shoot a video with him. Unfortunately we were not ready due to financial reasons, but he asked us again early this year and we decided the time was right, and he was perfect for the job. The idea was to have something very dirty and disturbing accompanying the song, and the final result was exactly as we had imagined.”
ELDRIMNER is a Gothenburg, Sweden based progressive extreme metal act featuring MARIONETTE vocalist Alexander Andersson. Lyrically, Inom förloppet av ett liv tells the life story of a man who discovers a darker side of himself which in turn grows into a disease infecting his thoughts and actions. Performed entirely in Swedish, this is a story in which your darkest thoughts surface and sing out in pure lamentation. Expect nothing less than the most bombastic, rhythmically eclectic and stylistically transcendent metal to ever come from Sweden.
ELDRIMNER recorded drums at Top Floor Studios in Gothenburg and guitars, bass, vocals and mixing took place at N3 with THE CROWN guitarist Marko Tervonen. The album was also mastered by Tervonen and Dragan Tanaskovic (DARK TRANQUILLITY, DIMENSION ZERO, INFLAMES) and features a guest vocal appearance from ZOMBIEKRIG vocalist Axel Widén who also created the artwork for the album and accompanying novel which was unveiled on a weekly basis during the run up to the release.
Founded in 2006, ELDRIMNER immediately played shows regularly with other groups in the tight-knit Gothenburg black metal scene. Over the following years, the band’s original black metal sound evolved and matured, taking inspiration from groups as varied as MESHUGGAH but with focus kept on their new branch of black metal. In 2009, ELDRIMNER released an EP entitled I mitt jag which was followed by an appearance at Metal Town, Gothenburg’s largest metal festival.
