Spelljammer Frontman Niklas Olsson Discusses New Album "Abyssal Trip," The Wait Between Albums And More

There seems to be a recurring theme revolving around space in metal albums lately. Whether it be the thought provoking "A Pale Blue Dot," by Dreamshade, or the 1984 inspired space opera "Necro Sapiens" from Baest, the vast wonder of the cosmos appears to have struck a chord with musicians on the heavier side of the spectrum. So it is with Spelljammer, the doom/stoner trio from Sweden, who recently unleashed their second full length album, "Abyssal Trip," which features several galactic references and even an astronaut on the front cover.

To find out more about "Abyssal Trip," I spoke with Spelljammer frontman Niklas Olsson, to discuss why there was a five year wait between this and their debut album, "Ancient Of Days," artwork, the music video for "Lake" and much more. You can check it out in full below.
