Swedish duo Eternal Death (Elin Berlin and Johan Angergård) just unleashed their newest song, "Fade".
“Fade” is the third single of 2014 from, who emerged last fall with the video “Eternal Death”, 4-minutes of total silence and darkness, which created equal amounts of fascination and confusion.
Eternal Death emerged early this year with “Head”, a sound that combines elements of Human League with Burial. The single garnered critical praise from underground outlets. It’s been called “vibrant death-disco with sparkling pop melodies behind an electronic wall of sound and a hazy, 21 year-old, Swedish Dolly Parton.”
This spring, Eternal Dealth released “Bullet” described as, “Between the razor sharp synths and haunted female vocals, you’re in for a beautifully unsettling experience."
Of “Fade”, Elin Berlin stated, "With…‘Bullet’ we just wanted to get everything out of us - convey all the emotions, anger, desperation. Get down to the core of Eternal Death. But this time it is different. The deafening noises have subsided; the dark clouds have eased and settled like a heavy fog. ‘Fade’ has that same mysterious, anxious feel like our previous songs, but it's more burdensome and subtle. It is a song that gropes in darkness and burst into the light, like haze in a dim forest; a given soundtrack for a cold winter’s day.”
