Shrouded in violence and wildness, KVAEN is a solo project by Swedish musician Jakob Björnfot. Walking the path of flesh and bone, KVAEN plays black metal with speed and pagan metal influences. The debut album, The Funeral Pyre, came on 28th February, 2020 on CD, LP, and digitally under the banner of Black Lion Records.
Funeral Pyre delivers well-executed black metal, exploring the ‘80s infernal speed metal reign and breathing the vision of Viking age, cold steel, death, and Ragnarök. Charged with diabolic melodies, this album grabs the listeners and takes them on a wild ride through mysterious barren wastelands of northern Sweden. KVAEN keeps the listener engaged with a knife against the throat until the last moment of Funeral Pyre.
HEDON is a mixture of Death/ thrash - and blackmetal from Sweden, forged in the fall of 2012.
