Two Years after the successful and critically debut album, “The Funeral Pyre”, that took the underground scene by storm with its unique mix of elements of Black Thrash, Pagan and Speed Metal, today Sweden based solo- project Kvaen, founded by Jacob Björnfot, has announced its upcoming, sophomore album. “The Great Below” will be released as LP, CD, tape and digital formats on March 25th, 2022 through Black Lion Records.

Kvaen quickly established itself in within the heavy music underground community and had the audience in a firm grip. Yet the first record continues to hold a special place for many, with the new album perfectly entitled “The Great Below”.
