Fredlös came together in the Spring of 2021, rising from the ashes of previous musical adventures, based in the country around Nortallje, northeast of Stockholm. United by a deep sense of their historical roots and a love of dark sounds, they create a truly epic landscape, blending heavy guitars with more traditional instruments and a need to relate history true to the facts. The result is a brooding yet effortlessly melodic sound where the listener can survive and thrive in the dark.
Fredlös’ self-titled debut album will be released in the Spring of 2023 and contains 9 dark, heavy, intense songs. Lyrically the album is a journey through the late Middle Ages, recounting the historical events from the perspective of the common people. Musically it’s a tour de force that defies any one description, weaving metal, rock, folk, and traditional music themes into a rich and varied tapestry.
Before the album, Autumn 2022 will see the release of the band’s first single Warm Wet Soil – 7 minutes 22 seconds of swirling, dynamic, beautiful heavy music introducing the first chapter of Fredlos, where you are implored to reject the light and embrace the wet warm soil.
