Mistland is maybe a very powerful music for me personally within the IOTUNN catalogue thus far. Creatively it evolves from an thought of a music which I’ve had in my thoughts for years, and with Mistland it lastly turned. After laying the inspiration of the music, it took off with my brother and me engaged on it intensively for many time, after which with the entire band contributing to a really inspirational round artistic matter. Mistland could be very private to me as a result of its sonic expressions mirror deep and honest emotions derived from being alive. I discover a melancholy that I see as a part of all of the experiences and emotions you’ll be able to have all through life. It’s a melancholy which at all times provides deeper and better views to no matter way of thinking you’re in.

This tribe has now a brand new member that contributes with musical and existential themes that I consider are vital. The lyrics and the music communicate to me on a number of ranges. When listening, I really feel like I’m surrounded by mist and shadows however with a continuing supply of sunshine being the bottom beneath all grounds.

I wished to create an enormous dynamic distinction between the elements whereas retaining a way of majestic power all through. I actually take pleasure in the best way it turned out and I can’t look forward to it to be launched!” – Bjørn Wind Andersen

Mistland appeared to virtually seem from out of nowhere. Jesper merely confirmed up on the rehearsal studio at some point, struck by a muse, with a complete new music for us. Its simplicity is misleading, and it’s all too simple to get misplaced within the spaciousness. For me, it has been essentially the most difficult IOTUNN music but. My contribution was to deliver one other layer to the hovering ambiance with cinematic and synth-like bass chord layers. Mistland has been a magical music to play dwell the previous couple of months, and the audiences’ reactions have been unbelievable. I can’t wait to deliver it to the large levels on this yr’s summer time festivals!” – Eskil Rask
