Stockholm based technical death metal band Terminal Function dropped the first single from the upcoming new EP “Krakstören,” teaming up with Unsung Melody to premiere it over at this location. You don’t really have to go anywhere, however, since the track is also streaming in the player just at the bottom.
“Krakstören” qas recorded, produced, mixed and mastered by Terminal Function in the band’s own Soundfraction Studios in Stockholm, Sweden. The EP will be released by Swedish music label Stupid Dream Records, run by the band’s guitarist, Stefan Aronsson.
On the new song, guitarist Mikael Almgren says, “The lyrics were inspired by a dream I had about meeting your past and future shadow self. I guess you could see it as a metaphor for reflecting and be aware of your past and at the same time think ahead, keeping different time perspective in your mind simultaneously.
The music alters quite a bit between the usual tech metal odd time signatures, fast parts and slow heavy sections with some haunting guitar parts, which made me think the topic of the lyrics would suit this song.”
