Says Rogga Johansson of the album:
“After the release of Demiurg´s Slakthus Gamleby there followed work on a possible follow-up album, to be named Garpedans. The concept was completed as well as guitars and bass, but after a while it was obvious that Demiurg was maybe put to a very long ice-ridden sleep through the ages to come. However, the material remained, and after some contemplation vocals was also finished and alternate musicians were found for drums and lead guitars, to complete the material into its intended form. So this album is what was to be the follow up album to Demiurg´s Slakthus Gamleby. It dint turn out that way, and it sounds very much unlike it would have done, if it was a Demiurg album. Nonetheless, most parts of it are the same as it would have been, so it’s a document in musical form of what would conceptually happen, but with its own twist, as always.
Garpedans lyrically and conceptually weighs heavy into the folklore of Gamleby, and the main character is the giant Garpe, as well as the mountain he became. Garpedans. Even without being a Demiurg album, this is a part of the concept started on the first album, so listen to it, and put it into context, and hopefully you will enjoy the expanded concept as well as the music itself.
