Swedish post-black metal project Ana Argan List has inked a deal with Finland’s Ground Media Group for the release of its debut self-titled EP, which will be available in physical format on November 1st, 2020. The EP is also available for full streaming at Black Metal Promotion and the artwork was created by Sissela Lewitzki.
Ana Argan List was formed in early 2020 as the solo project of Edvin Johansson (Orngòth). The band delivers emotional, atmospheric and aggressive music, combining powerful chants with melancholic and wistful melodies to create epic atmospheric soundscapes of the northern landscapes. Johansson comments: «The project wasn’t intentional. It started from the anxiety and depression. I try to stay away from mundane citylife when I want to create. I look for inspiration in nature, like forest walks. There I can self-reflect and get inspired, especially if it’s raining. Ana Argan List is a swedish proverb, that translates roughly to Creeping suspicion, which I thought was perfect for the feeling I’m trying to portray».
Ground Media Group’s founder Samuli adds: «When I heard these tracks in the first place I was sold right away. The title track tells everything. It’s full of emotion! The distant raw vocals, huge chants and the atmosphere reminds me of the legendary Summoning but done totally on his own way. The tracks are epic and give you a shiver. Siarens Misstag doesn’t have any vocals, but it paints you Nordic landscapes and huge emotions. Just pure perfection and I’m really happy and proud that we have signed a contract with Ana Argan List!».
