Domkraft Recontructs The World With "Seeds"

It's interesting to see all the various genres and styles which has influenced metal bands as time goes on. Sometimes it's the sub-genre right before and for some bands, it's delving into the past which produces the best results. Some groups take influence from different times, such as it is with Domkraft, the Swedish trio who blend sludge metal with psychdelic music to create a unique brand of heaviness.

On April 30th, the band will be unleashing their third full length album, "Seeds," a change in tone lyrically, but a record guaranteed to delight the fans they've already acquired. To find out more about the album, I caught up with drummer Anders Dahlgren to discuss the new release, themes, recording in Gothenburg and much more.

Diamond Oz: First of all, thank you for taking the time to speak with me and congratulations on your new album, "Seeds." What would you say makes it different from your previous album, "Flood"?

Anders Dahlgren: Thanks!

Apart from that we wanted it to feel really organic, and as close to a live recording as possible, the biggest difference would be that we used a different studio and recorded it with new people. The studio is called Welfare Sounds and is located in Gothenburg, on the west coast of Sweden. The recording engineers Per Stålberg and Kalle Lilja are awesome guys and contributed with lots of good ideas and had the knowledge to get the sound we were looking for.

And last but not least Karl Daniel Lidén, who did the mixing and mastering, is something of a wizard and really dialed in the big sound we were looking for.

Oz: Where did the title "Seeds" come from?

Anders: Our previous albums have mainly dealt with post-apocalyptic themes, but we felt that, given the state of the world even before the pandemic hit, we wanted to do something slightly different this time. So, the loose theme this time is about rebuilding and starting anew, and in that context, “Seeds” felt like a perfect title.
