Stockholm based technical death metal band TERMINAL FUNCTION have dropped the first single from their upcoming Krakstören EP release, teaming up with American website Unsung Melody to premiere it.

Founded in 1998 by guitarist, Stefan Aronsson and drummer David Lindkvist, TERMINAL FUNCTION was formed with the idea of creating challenging metal.  In 2001, guitarist Mikael Almgren (now also in Soreption) and singer Victor Larsson joined and the musical vision broadened to an even bigger horizon

Guitarist Mikael Almgren says, “The lyrics were inspired by a dream I had about meeting your past and future shadow self. I guess you could see it as a metaphor for reflecting and be aware of your past and at the same time think ahead, keeping different time perspective in your mind simultaneously.

The music alters quite a bit between the usual tech metal odd time signatures, fast parts and slow heavy sections with some haunting guitar parts, which made me think the topic of the lyrics would suit this song.”

Krakstören EP was recorded, produced, mixed and mastered by Terminal Function in their own Soundfraction Studios in Stockholm, Sweden. The Ep is released by Swedish music label Stupid Dream Records, run by the band’s guitarist, Stefan Aronsson.

“Chiral Ghost” is out through Stupid Dream Records and can be purchased on iTunes and streamed on Spotify.
