Svartanatt Brings Doom And Magic To ‘Last Days On Earth’

Last Days On Earth is the third studio album by Swedish Rock band Svartanatt, and follows their 2016 self-titled debut and 2018 sophomore full-length Starry Eagle Eyes. Recorded in Svenska Grammofonstudion, Last Days On Earth delivers 11 new tracks of Retro Rock and arrives on the 3rd of November, 2023 from The Sign Records. The album will be available on all streaming platforms and on black as well as orange vinyl.

While continuing building on Svartanatt’s foundation of ’60s and ’70s-influenced Rock, the album brings in a wider sound including melodic organ and guitar arrangements. Their latest single is “Mad Stranger”.

The band comments:

It’s a lot of doom and gloom on this album, at least in the lyrics. Faith in humanity, society and the own existence is nothing but a memory. Buried beneath a monument saying “your days are numbered, welcome to hell”.  But one man’s loss is another one’s gain. What will rise from the ashes?  

There has been no shortage of creativity and fun when recording this album. There’s a lot of classic Svartanatt but also an expansion of the sound. On the albums last track, Where I Belong, Lars Heaster (Daniel’s dad) has put down an epic trumpet that rides the album into the sunset. Magical, if we may say so.

Last Days On Earth was recorded by Martin Borgh, who also mixed the album. It was mastered by Hans Olsson Brookes (Bombus, Spiders, Graveyard, Blues Pills).
