Sagor Som Leder Mot Slutet is a Scandinavian instrumental postrock/metal band mixing darker and heavier themes with gentleness and fragility.
Their self-titled debut album released with a unique forest soundscape, Post Rock Essentials calling it one of the best albums of 2016. Nominated as “Best newcomer” and “Best album”, it culminated in aesthetic and visual live shows like VIVID Post Rock Festival.
Their follow up studio album “π” is about reaching the far ends and depths of the world drawing inspiration from the sea and in-cooperating equally haunting as beautiful violins performed by Malmö Opera consert maestro Wojtek Mileros. It was mixed and mastered by Magnus Lindberg (PG Lost, Alcest, Cult of Luna, etc) and recorded at Studio Gröndahl (Katatonia, etc), Arctic Drones reviewing it for both attacking and caressing all your senses, capturing both elements uniquely and successfully.
In 2019 Swedish motion picture “Iris”, directed by Mattias Olsson for Midvinterfilm (Försvunnen, etc) premiered at international film festivals and won best narrative short, for which Sagor Som Leder Mot Slutet composed and recorded the original motion picture soundtrack.
2022 finally marks the new chapter where the band looks as much outwards as inwards at the existential vastness of time and space with the new album “III” on the event horizon. Mixed and mastered by Magnus Lindberg, this time with a more synthesized – vast, yet frail – soundscape.
