MITOCHONDRIAL SUN - Niklas Sundin's (Dark Tranquillity) New Project To Release Sophomore Album, New Video Released

February 2020 seen former Dark Tranquillity guitarist, Niklas Sundin, debut his critically acclaimed, self-titled solo album, and his first public foray into different musical realms. Now, the multi-instrumentalist returns with his sophomore, full-length offering from Mitochondrial Sun, titled Sju Pulsarer, and which is set to be released on 13th November digitally and on 26th February 2021 on CD/vinyl via the Italian label Argonauta Records.

While the core of the music still is electronic and instrumental, Mitochondrial Sun’s new album displays a very different and probably more “black metal” aspect of the project. If the first album mainly consisted of quiet meditations on space and time, Sju Pulsarer (Swedish for “Seven pulsars”) throws the listener into the eye of a relentless cosmic storm, where layers of sound are shattered and rebuilt to the rhythm of ferocious percussion. As opposed to the first album, where every track had its own instrumentation and sonic signature, these songs are very uniform in style: fast, urgent and chaotic, but still full of emotionally charged melodies and atmospheric soundscapes lurking beneath the surface.

After Sundin recently shared a first single to the album opening track, he has just unleashed a brand new, blistering music video. Sink into the cold grasp of Mitochondrial Sun and listen to "Pulsar 2" right here. Link
