The Living Mountain will be released on November 17th 2023 and will be available on all streaming services.
Niklas Johansson on The Living Mountain: “Working with my brother on The Living Mountain was really fun to do! We aimed for a more melodic sound this time around, but even more heavy at the same time. And we have tried to blend in a more folkish vibe but with a haunted edge so to say!”
