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.

Track Name: The Wave
Hold down the wave
All drown the same
Nooo, nooo
Nooo, nooo

Break down the wave
All drown the same

Hold on, she said
Breathe in the air
Nooo, nooo
Nooo, nooo

Washed up, on shore
The s(h)ea, wants more

Hold on...
Hold on...

Let go...
Let go...

Hold on...

Let go...
Track Name: What Did I Do Wrong
It comes to me,
I don't care, honestly
It stings for a while
I don't feel a thing

And then it's gone
I'm all alone

It comes right back to you,
when you don't know
You will find the way,
as you go

And then it's gone
What did I do wrong?

What did I do wrong?

And then it comes to me,
I don't care
Track Name: Into The Fire
Into the fire
Help me find out
Long way down
Long way home

Hear the flame,
cry out your name
Long way down
Long way home

Into the woods
Hide beneath the trees
Run away
Hide away

Chase you down
Burn the ground
Run away,
from the flame
Track Name: The Witch
(I see the witch on fire)
(Can you see? Yes)
(She's on fire. Show us the witch)
(I see a priest beside her)
(Where? The priest, is, beside her)
(She must burn!)

I see the burning fire
I see the flames go higher
Burn down the whole empire/burned on the holy pyre
See how the people conspire

I see the burning fire
I see the flames go higher
Gathering for the choir
Sing out as loud, as you can
As she burns

As the soul of the witch has left this world,
another one is born
Doomed by the villains
Her final breath is a cry to dead ears
The vision a sight for blinded eyes
She now rests,
Far... away... from... home...

Far away
Far away from home
Far away
Far away from home
Far away
Far away from home
Far away
Far away from home
Track Name: It's Been Said
Oh, it's been said
