It had been four long years, but experimental, progressive, Swedish metal lords Moloken finally returned at the end of 2015 with the new album, All Is Left To See. With it they finally presented what they have been doing all of this time, a lyrical concept called 'Mörkrets Kärna': an album-trilogy about falling down a pit of your darkest being, losing yourself completely and desperately trying to make sense of it.
The album showcases the band's most experimental side yet. Moloken clearly has no intention of being trapped in any corner of genre-fascism, but rather work with a "anything goes" attitude, which is a fresh breeze in an otherwise stale metal scene. All Is Left To See was mostly recorded live at the famous Tonteknik Studio in their home town Umeå, and has an atmosphere and sound that is reminiscent of their first album Our Astral Circle (2009).
However, they're not interested of walking in old shoes; their musical universe has been further expanded by adding new layers, elements and twists, topped off with dark and bleak lyrics surrounding the 'Mörkrets Kärna' concept. To truly engage in a new Moloken album you must dive into it head first. You won't know quite what lies ahead, but its worth the risk.
