Their debut album “Själv” (Alone) was recorded in Misfortune Recorders and consists of six depressive hymns with titles like “Apati, är du min älskling?” (Apathy, are you my dear?), “Evig semester från mig själv” (Eternal vacation from myself), etc. Next to the anguished songs, the vocalist adds his mental unpleasant and make the atmosphere more dark and scary.
