DET EVIGA LEENDET set release date for new AMOR FATI / MYSTÍSKAOS / EXTRACONSCIOUS album, reveal first track – features members of MARE COGNITUM+++

Today, Amor Fati Productions sets January 28th as the international release date for Det eviga leendet‘s highly anticipated second album, Reverence, on CD format. Digital and vinyl LP formats will be released by Mystískaos and Extraconscious Records, with distribution by Dissociative Visions.

Formed in 2015, Det eviga leendet is a gathering of individuals from scattered parts of Sweden and, more recently, the US. Although a discordant group of people, the foundation of the band stems from a collective will to explore concepts of expansive insular gloom. Aptly, the group has taken their name from Pär Lagerkvist’s 1920 writing about a large group of dead people who are stuck in the dark with nothing to do besides talk in order to pass eternity.

In 2022, from deep solitude, Det eviga leendet emerges again to conceive of a second record, Reverence, a work which acts more as an abject reflection of the time in which it was conceived than an embodiment of musical expression. Bleak and harsh, the approach further depicts total and infinite descent – one which we all experience, yet must endure alone.

In a time where all manner of charlatans gaze deeply into our eyes, haunting us, whittling away at our vertebrae to make us unfit to live, we look to the stars with a misty gaze, attempting to prophesy about how they are connected to us and our sick time. While we may grow to understand it better, knowing well the darkness that permeates only informs us of what lurks in the hearts of ourselves and others, it cannot cure it.

Since the release of Det eviga leendet’s debut LP, released in 2018 by Fallen Empire, Jacob Buczarski (Mare Cognitum) has joined the band and taken over the vocal duties on the sophomore album.
