FEJD: New Album Title Announced

December 15, 2009

FEJD, the Swedish folk rock/metal band featuring members of NOSTRADAMEUS and PATHOS, has issued the following update:

"Yesterday we finished the last song for our new album.

"The writing process started in February and now we feel that we have a strong set for the new album.

"As it seems now, the recordings will take place in February 2010 and will take place at RoastingHouse Studios in Malmö, Sweden. Apart from the new songs, we will record two additional songs from our earlier 'demos' — not as album fillers, but as we play those songs live, we want more people to have a chance to hear them in a real recording and to those of you who all ready has the demos I can say that it will be completely new recordings with some arrangement changes that we have been thinking of since we recorded them the last time quite some time ago.

"The album title is decided to 99% and as we feel it will be called 'Eifur'."

FEJD released its full-length debut, "Storm", in March via Napalm Records.

FEJD formed in 2001 through a fusion of the folk music duo RIMMERFORS (featuring brothers Patrik Rimmerfors and Niklas Rimmerfors) and a couple of members from the metal band PATHOS. Rimmerfors played folk music with medieval undertones, performing on contemporary instruments, and together with their childhood friends of PATHOS, the transformed into a refined band with the best of both worlds — the weight of heavy metal in symbiosis with the typical melodic language and sadness of the Nordic folk music.

The brothers' interest in Swedish medieval folk music started back in 1995, commenced by music studying and the feeling of wanting to explore new musical ground and try something new. The brothers' musical background, as well as their bandmates, has its roots in heavy metal music. Inspiration is also drawn from like-minded bands such as GARMARNA and HEDNINGARNA.
