Melodic black metal - Sweden
MÖRK GRYNING was founded in Stockholm, Sweden in 1993 by Goth Gorgon and Draakh Kimera. The debut album “Tusen År Har Gått” (1995), was recorded at Unisound Studios, produced by Dan Swanö and released by No Fashion.
The group returned to action in November 1996, working at Sunlight Studios together with Tomas Skogsberg and DISMEMBER’s Fred Estby to craft the “Return Fire” record. This album would include their interpretation of SLAYER’s “Necrophiliac”.
Returning in 2000 along with guitarist Avathar, a scene veteran, the band wrote “Maelstrom Chaos” at the legendary Grieghallen Studios Bergen, Norway. In January of 2004, MÖRK GRYNING cut their rendition of “Neverwhere” for an AT THE GATES tribute album “Slaughterous Souls – A Tribute To At The Gates” released through Drowned Scream Records.
Ever since the debut album, “Tusen år har gått…”, MÖRK GRYNING have refused to follow in the footsteps of others and have walked their own paths – something which is made very clear on the 2003 release “Pieces of Primal Expressionism”, an experimental and heavy progressive release recorded at Dug out, produced by Daniel Bergstrand. After a couple of years of touring and festival performances, the band was put on-hold.
Returning to the scene again in 2017, the band performed an exclusive live show in Stockholm playing all the songs from the debut album and some other songs from the back catalogue. This ended in releasing the 4-song live record called “Live at Kraken”.
