DÖDAREN's second full-length album, "Passage", was recorded between January and November 2015. It is the result of a long development process for the band that started right after the release of their previous album, Maen, in 2012. The product of hundreds of hours of work in the rehearsal room, an arduous process of writing, throwing away, rewriting, Passage displays a significant change in DÖDAREN’s evolution.
Where Maen was built upon clean vocals with Swedish lyrics, adventurous riffs and boogie influences, Passage renders a deeper and darker picture, with English lyrics, alternating growl vocals, down-tuned distorted guitars, and long monotone passages.
Passage embodies the epitome of DÖDAREN's style; at times hard-hitting, heavy and intense, while at the same time containing occasional softer passages that embed the album's unique style of progressive metal, creating a vibrant wide ranged album that covers a broad spectrum of emotion.
