BESVÄRJELSEN – Swedish for “conjuring” – was formed in 2014. Pronounced
Bes - VAR - YELL - sen. Though clearly rooted in the realms of doom, within their engulfing sound lies traces of progressive metal, punk, folk, and classic rock all carefully weaved together resulting in a sound that is at once crushingly heavy and alluringly sophisticated. They released their debut EP « Villfarelser » in 2015, quickly followed by the « Exil » EP (2016) which also celebrates the addition of drummer Erik Bäckwall (former Dozer, Greenleaf) to the lineup. In 2018, the quintet release their first full-length « Vallmo » (Swedish for “poppy”), offering seamlessly wandering from crushing doom riffs to catchy vocals and melodies, deep lyrical content and storming drum work, all topped by stunning guitar solos and, for the first time since the band’s formation, songs in English as well as their native Swedish. A couple of months before the release, the band welcomed bass player Johan Rockner (former Dozer, Greenleaf) to the fold.
BESVÄRJELSEN return in2019 with their new « Frost » EP, an almost full length format that raises the band’s standards even higher. It will be available on August 9th worldwide through Blues Funeral Recordings after being first included as part of the exclusivePostWax series. PostWax is a groundbreaking subscription-style series of exclusive records for diehard fans of stoner, doom, heavy, psych rock, launched by Blues Funeral Recordings. The « Year One » series will also feature releases from Elder, Lowrider, Domkraft, Big Scenic Nowhere on limited edition vinyl with jaw-dropping artwork and next-level design. -
