Dark folkish black metal band Saiva from Norrbotten County, Sweden will release its debut full-length album entitled “Markerna Bortom” on October 13, 2017 via Nordvis Produktion. Saiva is the personal project of Andreas Petterson, who is also in De Arma, Stilla, Whirling and was previously also in Armagedda, Lönndom, Volkermord, LIK and Leviathan. In Saiva’s debut album there are featured guest appearances by J. Kaarna (Tervahäät), Austin Lunn (Panopticon) & Erik Gärdefors (Grift). “Markerna Bortom” will be out on jewel-case CD edition and on LP edition (black vinyl, packaging: single jacket, 4 page LP sized booklet, LP in poly bag). It is already available for pre-order in Nordvis web-shop and in Saiva’s official Bandcamp page.
Far to the north, beyond the noise and rule of civilization, lies a vast and untamed landscape. It’s a place untouched by time, free from the destructive influence of man. Yet, it echoes of an ancient heritage. But whisper in the wind, it still speaks stronger and clearer to those who are willing to listen. It’s a land enchanted by myths and stories about man and nature, that of cruelty and beauty and harsh duality of the wilderness. These are the stories reflected through Saiva’s stripped-down emotional expression. The debut album “Markerna Bortom” is a unique opportunity for us to take part in a way of life that is indeed unusual in today’s society. This album isn’t just a nostalgic glimpse at a forgotten time, but a journey to a place forgotten and untraveled by most.
