“Svåra år” (eng: “Hard years”) was written and recorded during 2017-2020 at location in Västerbotten, Sweden. It features singles that have reached the “Viral 50 in Sweden” charts on Spotify. The album carries all the significant traits of an Utmarken release; epic atmosphere, nyckelharpa (keyed fiddle) and the melancholy characteristics of scandinavian folk music blended up with the easily accessible elements of power metal. Lyrics are in swedish and centers around nature and mankinds will to survive despite tough conditions – and the everlasting existential struggle of the soul.

The physical album is distributed via Einheit Produktionen.
