Following their 2016 self-titled debut album and 2018’s ‘Starry Eagle Eye‘, the Swedish classic rock outfit are now set to release their third studio full-length ‘Last Days on Earth‘ during the fall of 2023. ‘Child of the Devil‘ offers a first taste of the new album, and delivering melodious guitars, heavy organ, high-energy drums, groovy basslines and unique, sharp vocals.
SVARTANATT on the new single:
“‘Child of the Devil‘ is the first single from our third upcoming album ‘Last Days on Earth‘. The song is about a person who has been struggling his whole life. His feeling inside has always been insecure and uncertain, whatever direction he turned to, the darkness has overshadowed the light. He has always found a way back up from the bottom, to one day reach the top.”
SVARTANATT is a Swedish rock band that was formed in 2014 by Jani Lehtinen (vocals & guitar), Daniel Heaster (drums), Felix Gåsste (guitar) and Mattias Holmström (bass). Jani had known Heaster and Mattias since they lived in the same city (Gävle) before they moved to Stockholm. Felix was recruited by Mattias soon after, and later on Jani asked Martin Borgh (organ, keyboards), who he had performed with before, to join the band. A dynamic quintet was hereby formed and hits like ‘Demon‘ and ‘Black Heart‘, among others, saw the light of day. The Sign Records released the band’s first album S/T in 2016 and the second album ‘Starry Eagle Eye‘ in 2018. After a few years of local shows and successful wild tours across Europe (including broken limbs and lost band members) Mattias decided to leave the band in 2019. Jani hooked up with old friend Anton Fors (bass) for a chat and some beers, and they’ve kept rocking together ever since.
With melodious guitars, heavy organ, high energy drums, groovy basslines and unique sharp vocals, SVARTANATT create their own timeless rock sound that has been recognized around the world. The band’s third album will be released by The Sign Records this coming fall.
