“Era 1 Performance.
A re-interpretation of the 1994 album “Ånden som Gjorde Opprør”.”
GRIFT – Acoustic solo set
“With strong ties to predominantly Swedish poets and artists, Grift want to convey the sense of melancholy and existential questions that artists and thinkers throughout history always have felt a strong need to express. Grift’s ambition is also to evoke the mood some people are in great need of; the mood you can’t express through other mediums than music, images, and in some cases even through words. This kind of escapism is about breaking the chains of everyday given norms, and for a short moment becoming a stranger lost in a state of uncertain homelessness”
“A brave combination of bright melodic uptempo dungeon synth, brooding atmospheres and driving martial rhythms. Vetraheimr is a Swedish solo project by Thomas Nyholm (Damnation Army, Isgärde) that transitions elegantly between light and dark moods”

“The band originated in 1999 as a project fronted by Simone “Hellvis” Salvatori, a guitarist and singer from Italy. They have since worked extensively —both solo and with several other neofolk projects— on their musical output. The group has performed subsequent tours throughout Europe.
Spiritual Front’s so-called “Mafia-Folk” has been in release since 1999, in which time Simone Salvatori, the lyricist and conceptualist behind the band, has been known to create a unique feel within their traditionally folk style. Their most noticeable recurring output is Simone’s charismatic playing of the acoustic guitar, along with martial drum beats characteristic of the neofolk genre, art rock and new wave influences and heavily decadent musical styles.” ~ www.rustblade.com ~
