That’s right, people.
Dan Swanö has inked a new deal with Century Media Records.
But you’re saying, “Chris, isn’t Dan known mostly these days for his production work?”
He is. But Dan can also singö and playö.
“Swanö has been no stranger to Century Media Records: He was originally involved with the death metal supergroup Bloodbath,” says a press release from the label.
“Swanö has been heavily working again as producer and mixer of albums, including releases by Century Media artists such as Asphyx, Grand Supreme Blood Court, Oddland, and Morgoth,” the release says.
Commented Swanö: “It’s been 23 years since I signed my first-ever record-deal, but never before have I been this excited… I have now signed with Century Media Records! I bought the first release from Century Media back in 1989, and it is amazing to see how much the label has grown over the years.
“After working with Century Media for a few compilation CDs and for two and a half albums with Bloodbath, I knew it would be the perfect home for me whenever I felt like returning to the recording-industry as a performer again. And now…I am back! With a vengeance!!!”
Swanö and Century Media will be releasing music from Dan’s new project Witherscape.
The group also features Ragnar Widerberg.
I wish my name were Ragnar.
“I have just completed the final mixes of the first album from my new project Witherscape. Fans of my Moontower album and the catchier parts of Edge of Sanity won’t be disappointed! I sing, both clean and growl, play drums and keyboards. Ragnar Widerberg plays all guitars & bass and has co-written almost all the tracks with me.”
The new project releases an album this July.
