«I wanted to really present the beauty of melancholy» Akslen says. «My music is very visual in its compositions, painting imagery within the soundscapes… I think the whole world needs to take a deep cleansing breath, and this is two minutes of pure serenity».
Cooperating with session musicians Misstiq (keys), Margarita Chernova (strings) and Norlene Olmedo (cello), «Hjemlengsel» is a taste of what’s to come where Stein Akslen of Minneriket has joined forces with a huge roster of session collaborators to bring forth a hybrid of black metal, goth and classical all presented in 50 shades of blackness.
Commenting on this change of style Akslen narrates: «I’ve spent too much time going against the grain that right now I’m not even in the same field. This upcoming album is both a departure and an arrival, and a finger to orthodoxy in metal».
Hjemlengsel is available on YouTube, iTunes and Spotify February 12th 2021. Full-length album coming later this year.
