Band Biographies: Svarta Sanningar

Svarta Sanningar (Black Truths) is a Swedish occult post-rock and gothic metal band. Their music has also been described as a heavier and darker version of Depeche Mode, with connections to the bands Ghost and Opeth.

The band’s journey began in 2017 with two old friends, lukewarm beer and a dinner at a Chinese joint in Gothenburg. The founder of the gothic metal band Beseech, Klas Bohlin (vocals) and Jonas Persson (guitar) were talking about music and vinyl records, but were also a bit excited in founding a new band. Svarta Sanningar was formed shortly after in the city of Borås, when Mattias Lejon (bass) and Håkan Carlsson (drums / Beseech), became a part of the dark musical vision.
Svarta Sanningar has built an entire concept around a fictional backstory, which includes an occult order society with the same name as the band. According to rumors, the order was located at the Swedish island Fjärrö during the 70s, but no one seems to know for sure. » Read the backstor.
