GRIFT – Vilsna andars boning, EP
Seven-inch single on black vinyl with heavy jacket including a 4-page A6 booklet. Limited to 500 copies.On the 2018 “Vilsna andars boning” (‘Abode of lost spirits’), Erik Gärdefors sought to convey his sonic melancholia in a more austere and minimalistic manner than with any of his previous efforts. Heavily infused with traditional Swedish folk, the EP is about our dreams, heritage, and largely forgotten past.
Using only acoustic instruments, Erik captures the same feeling that permeates his metal-based records. This penchant for leaving his characteristic imprint regardless of musical expression is the key to Erik’s success across multiple music genres. Since its 2011 conception, Grift has released prestigious splits with contemporary metal greats like Saiva and Drudkh. Furthermore, Erik’s acoustic solo performances are regularly billed alongside leading neofolk acts such as Sangre de Muerdago, Nebelung, and Wolcensmen. At the time of this announcement, Grift’s metal line-up is preparing for the Lights of Oblivion autumn tour with Panopticon.
To commemorate the release of its spiritual and musical successor EP, “Vilsna andars utmark” (‘Hinterland of lost spirits’), Nordvis are now making this sold-out seven-inch available again.
