Gösta Berlings Saga - Detta Har Hänt (TRANS047)
We are glad to finally reveal that the next album, titled Detta Har
Hänt, will be released worldwide on Transubstans Records in May/June.
The album was recorded during winter 08/09, partly assisted by Mattias
Olsson of Änglagård, and represents the band's evolution since the
release of the critically acclaimed debut album Tid är Ljud (2006).
Whereas the previous album dealt with the interaction between nature and
city, Detta Har Hänt focuses on the latter with eight stories about the
languishing welfare state, industrialism and love. The songs range from
full-blown epic soundscapes via dissonant darkness to minimalistic
powerful grooves without compromising when it comes to the strong
melodies the band is known for. The basis for the album was recorded
live in the band's own studio Pelikaan, which has preserved a genuinely
organic and highly energetic feel to the music. Overdubs have been made
with instruments such as Mellotron, Minimoog and pump organ to give even
more dimensions to the colorful sounds of Gösta Berlings Saga. In
conclusion Detta Har Hänt is a gigantic leap forward in all musical
aspects, and should not be missed by anyone interested in new music.
Limited first edition in a sombre digipack.
