Formed in the small Northern Swedish town of Norsjö in late 2003 by vocalist David Nilsson and bassist Viktor Eriksson. With the lineup complete, the band soon began writing and performing around their native Sweden. Writing on the album to follow the debut was begun immediately after returning from the tour. But the recording was delayed due to line-up changes when Rickard Lundmark and Petter Nilsson left the band to pursue other interest after having recorded the song for "The Deathkult EP", a split EP along with German death metal band, REVEL IN FLESH, released though Joe Black Records. The band was later joined by ex-ARMAGEDDA drummer, Roger Markström, and Markus continued as the sole guitarist and the recording process for the next album started. The new album "Where Dead Dreams Dwell" is to be released in May though Cyclone Empire, the new label home of FERAL since early 2015.
The songs of late Renaissance and early Baroque England have been sliced and diced in various ways in concert and recorded programming, but the configuration here seems to be unique. The tenor Nicholas Phan, from Ann Arbor, Michigan, devised the program himself: pointing out "how little human experience has changed over the centuries" and that Dowland's melancholia had much in common with the Romantics' veneration of the lovesick solitary hero (both debatable ideas, but both stimulating), he assembles what he calls a pastiche song cycle from compositions by Purcell, Dowland, John Blow, and other lesser-known lights.
