Siberian is a heavy metal band from Linköping, Sweden that finds it’s influences in the American sludge and post-metal scene. Mix it together with their Scandinavian background and you will start to get an idea what Siberian is all about. Uncompromising walls of sound meets melody and melancholia.
Post-metal inspired experimentation with sitars, flutes and bag-pipes. Faintest traces of atmospheric black-metal clashing with cranking moments of hardcore sludge. Jubilant melodies and fiery war drums.
Siberian released their theme-based debut album ‘Modern Age Mausoleum’ in 2014. It was the first chapter in Siberian’s ‘Age trilogy’. The album displays a Orwellian view of the modern society. After several tour cycles the band started to work with what was going to become their next release.
The band worked with the documentation of all their personal dreams. The material became the foundation of what was to become their second theme-based release in the trilogy named ‘Through Ages of Sleep’. The follow-up explores the subconscious mind in dreams and is portrayed both sonically and lyrically. The album takes Siberian a step further sounding more mature and grown up compared to the previous debut. The band have stated in interviews that they shun away from any musical rules and focus only on writing what feels right. Which becomes very clear on the new record.
Since the release the band evolved their musicality and added new members to the group expandning the band from a three-piece to a quintet. Focusing on writing new material with new instruments in the band. Siberian is introducing it’s new members with a new live EP ‘Live at Studio Underjord’ set to be released in February 2019.
