Skraeckoedlan came to life in 2009 in Norrköping, Sweden. The ambition was to create heavy psychedelic music with lyrics in Swedish, and to explore themes connected to Nordic folklore, sci-fi and to create a mysterious world with their songs. The name translates to what you could call Godzilla in Swedish.
The band recorded and released their two first EPs during 2009 and 2010. They got a lot of attention and toured a lot. In the summer of 2011 they released their first album called Äppelträdet (the apple tree), recorded and produced in Studio Bombshelter by Oskar Ozo Cedermalm of Truckfighters.
Äppelträdet got to a lot of “best-of-lists” that year and quickly sold out. The band did over 300 live shows the coming years and shared stage with bands like Orange Goblin, Kylesa, Truckfighters, Greenleaf and other giants of the genre.
In 2015 the album Sagor (Tales) was released. This time Skraeckoedlan worked with a few producers, like Niklas Berglöf (Ghost, Den Svenska björnstammen) and Daniel Bergstrand (Meshuggah, In flames, El Caco) but it was when they met producer and technician Erik Berglund that they really found what was missing. The album undoubtedly took the band to a new level musically and they explored the world that they have created over the years. It reached number two on the Swedish vinyl sales list the month it was released.
Now the quest for the next album has started, and what could be better than to work with the guys that got them in to this genre to start with.
“Signing with Fuzzorama records really connects the dots and is the missing link that Skraeckoedlan has been searching for all these years. We really feel like we have found our home.” –Skraeckoedlan.
