PER WIBERG (Ex-OPETH) Streams New Solo Single "Dead Sky Lullaby"

Also of Spiritual Beggars and Candlemass fame.


Swedish multi-instrumentalist Per Wiberg (Spiritual Beggars, Candlemass, ex-Opeth) is now streaming his new single "The Serpent’s Here" off the coming record of the same name.

The Serpent's Here features drummer Tor Sjödén (Viagra Boys) and bassist Mikael Tuominen (Kungens Män). Basic live tracks (drums, basses, grand piano) were recorded at Studio Gröndahl by David Castillo and, as with previous releases, the record was mixed and mastered by Jonas Kjellgren at Blacklounge Studios.

"The music has a strong familiar identity I'd say," notes Wiberg. "It's heavy in its tone but this time a little braver, uptempo, loose, and 'rock'n'roll' compared to the previous two albums. Overall, this is the most epic sounding of my stuff so far. Things are more defined. I worked hard with lyrics and vocal arrangements this time."

On the writing process, Wiberg continued: "All songs are built from rough song sketches that I showed Tor and Mikael. The idea was that they could improvise. All basic tracks were recorded live in an afternoon to give it that extra spontaneous energy, and then I'd layer keys, guitars, and vocals on top of what we recorded. Overall, there are more guitars this time as well as two basses on the majority of the tracks."

The Serpent's Here is out February 9. Pre-orders are available here.
