LP release of GRIFT’s classic 2003 debut EP “Fyra elegier”
Built upon a concept stained with inspiration drawn from great elder poets like Johannes Edfelt, Pär Lagerkvist & Dan Andersson among others GRIFT delivers rugged, hackneyed & melancholic metal in a way most pleasant.
Grift is a Swedish duo, formed in 2011 by Perditor (Orcivus, Arfsynd) on vocals and strings, and J. Hallbäck (Flagellant) handling the drums. The idea with Grift is to make melancholic metal music with Swedish lyrics about mans’ insignificance and everything unimaginable before Death’s triumph. The attentive listener will notice that Grift has some strong ties to some of Sweden’s most famous poets and their expression and metaphores. After a few evenings in Perditors’s studio Liesmia the band had recorded what would become Fyra elegier.
