Roger Grünwald Es ist einfach nur berauschend eure Musik zu hören. Der doch zarte Gesang von Jakob Berglund fasziniert mich unglaublich. Schön euch kennen gelernt zu haben.

kimzi_ziceta Once again, A Swarm of the Sun impresses with this beautiful release. The beauty of this band is their ability to subtly guide you to a space within yourself where you realize the darkness does not exist to scare you, but to show you a new path that will lead to personal growth. This band demonstrates that humans can be like a beautiful lotus that blooms from the darkness of mud if we simply learn to embrace the darkness as much as we embrace the light.

Simon Booth The only problem with MONO's albums is that they tend to sound pretty similar to each other - they don't stray from their comfort zone. The Woods is no exception to this, though the fact it wasn't actually recorded by MONO is an interesting curiosity. Favorite track: Blackout.

WherePostRockDwells This album sounds like the end of the world and the vivid imagery of cities burning to ashes but at the same time forces me to deeply introspect on how much my existence is worth. This is one hell of a cathartic, surreal and intense atmospheric ride that pushes me down a spiralling dark abyss with a tiny glimpse of proverbial light at the end of the tunnel. Favorite track: The Woods.

about

A Swarm of the Sun will release their fourth album on January 11, 2019. The album is titled "The Woods", and is the follow-up to the critically acclaimed 2015-release "The Rifts". "The Woods" expands its predecessor’s signature sound of chilling, emotional and sometimes unsettling post-rock into even deeper levels of haunting and unnerving soundscapes.

"The Woods" consists of three 13-minute pieces. With patient restraint and ritualistic undertones, A Swarm of the Sun create a deliberate whole. The result is an album that urges the listener to stay to the end. A Swarm of the Sun has never shied away from the bleakest parts of the human experience. "The Woods" brings you comfort in knowing you’re not alone. It wants to be a companion in the dark.

The album travels between stillness and chaos. It is seamlessly brought together by mix and master by long-time collaborator Karl Daniel Lidén (Crippled Black Phoenix, Bloodbath, Breach). “The Woods” is released as a luxury gatefold LP, a six-panel digipak CD with an eight-page booklet and most digital platforms.

A Swarm of the Sun is the Swedish duo Jakob Berglund and Erik Nilsson. Recorded by Erik Nilsson at Garaget Studio, Version Studio and Kristine kyrka. Drums recorded by Karl Daniel Lidén at Studio Gröndahl. Design and artwork by Jakob Berglund. Distributed worldwide by Sound Pollution. Released on Erik's label Version Studio Records.
