Sagor Som Leder Mot Slutet is a Scandinavian instrumental postrock/metal band mixing darker and heavier themes with gentleness and fragility.
The self titled debut album released with a unique forest soundscape, Post Rock Essentials calling it one of the best albums of 2016. It got nominated as “Best newcomer” and “Best album”, bringing aesthetics and visual live shows culminating at the VIVID Post Rock festival sharing stage with bands like Kokomo, Syberia and Yndi Halda.
The 2018 follow up studio album “II” is about reaching the far ends and depths of the world drawing inspiration from the sea. Mixed and mastered by Magnus Lindberg (PG Lost, Alcest, Cult of Luna, etc) and recorded at Studio Gröndahl (Katatonia, etc), it broadened the soundscapes of the band, bringing piano and live strings to the palette.
The album was well received, generating a larger fan base as well as more shows in the Nordic countries supporting bands like TRNA, Shy,Low and We Stood Like Kings.
