about

Systemet is a collective that challenges the architecture of a standard band. While the sounds have their roots in early industrial, dungeon synth, dark ambient and noise drone music, only a segment of Systemet is a harsh reinterpretation of the mix of these genres.

In “När Vintern Kommer Till Sverige”, all members have a unique role: B.J. is a mad Belgian feedback scientist/performer and infra sugar daddy, E.L. is an Italian broken machine player and chaos worshipper while G.G. is an Italian video engineer and trekking mistress.
The aim of this album is to recreate the sensations of the Swedish winter, based on a one-week off-track trek in the Sami area north of mount Kebnekaise, where the cover picture was taken, in the period between autumn and winter 2018. Once back to Stockholm, after various previous rehearsals, they gathered together in their private
studio in Hägersten and recorded nonstop for 3 days and 3 nights to keep the feeling of their experience alive.

No overdub was added, as the sound of the album wants to remain reproducible live, both on a quadraphonic
The tracks have been produced on a quadraphonic sound system but were recorded in stereo.
No field recordings were used, only synthesized sounds performed with ELI and ELQ, two custom self-made synthesizers.
