About

The metal album 'Mörkrets Tid' is a unique collaboration between musician Christian Älvestam and writer Erik Granström. The album received positive reviews even before it was released:

Sweden Rock Magazine: 9/10

Gaffa Magazine: 5/6

Rocknytt.net: 4/5

Christian Älvestam started the extreme metal band Svavelvinter in 2014, taking the name from an RPG setting he played as a teenager. Erik Granström, who wrote the setting at the time as well as fantasy novels on the theme, found out and got curious. He contacted Christian and they decided to make the album 'Mörkrets Tid' (Time of Darkness) together, Erik writing the lyrics and Christian providing the music.

Listen to four of the eight songs from the album:

Vanderland

Döds Ände

Glasmannen

Mörkrets Tid

Risks and challenges

The album 'Mörkrets Tid' has already been released on digipack CD. The LP, shirt, bonus track, photo, patch, sticker and pin will only be produced if the pledge-goal gets funded, otherwise not. Also note that the LP- and shirt-designs are mock-ups that will only be realized if this Kickstarter campaign is successful.
