Moloken Surcease single cover
“Surcease” is the first single taken from Moloken’s fourth album “Unveilance of Dark Matter”, set for release on January 31st, 2020.

Released with a music video, the single is one of the shortest and most direct songs of the upcoming album, combining uncompromising modern hardcore influenced metal with overloads of melodies and despair. You can hear that Moloken is from Umeå, Sweden - there are a lot of influences from acts as Meshuggah, Cult of Luna and Refused.
Check out the video for “Surcease” below.

Moloken is powerhouse that has fueled the North Swedish hemisphere for 12 years. The new album holds eleven tracks of progressive and uncompromising metal that establish the band further.

The music is tainted by the North Swedish music environment and similarities can be found to other Umeå based bands like Meshuggah, Cult Of Luna or Refused. Album artwork is done by the fantastic Costin Chioreanu that previously have worked with bands as Ghost, At the Gates and Mayhem. The first single “Surcease” is set for release on November 8th, 2019.

Since the dawn of time music has been a part of human history and itís the only language that has transcended every age. Of the few fortunate that channel one of humanities oldest forms of expression is the aging colossus Moloken. Born in the bitter cold of Ume in 2007 the band has walked their own path disregarding musical conventions and genres. To change, morph and evolve restlessly is in the very fabric of Moloken and the titan above us is still on a journey into the unknown. Music is their religion and it unleashes feelings that are only understood by the heart of those who listen.
Throughout the last 12 years the band has been fusing together influences from Death/Doom/Black Metal along with 70s progressive rock and Hardcore. The result is a unique blend of dark, moody and menacing music that manages to be both cerebral and crushingly heavy. The goal of the band has always been to create something of their own while acknowledging that they are standing on the shoulders of giants: ìBurn what we worshipped and worship what we burnedî.
Once you’ve heard Moloken, it’s hard to wash it out of your clothes. It stains, like coffee or blood.
