Slow Wave Violence
"Exploring the borders of post rock and post metal with an intense and emotional release. This might be the most captivating instrumental album of the year so far."
- Knut / Veil of sound
"This is the kind of stuff that you want to play loud while you close your eyes and just allow yourself to submerge in it...
I don’t want to understate how significant of a work I think Dimwind’s Slow Wave Violence is."
- Kep / Noobheavy
Dimwind is an instrumental post-rock/metal band from Gothenburg, Sweden, consisting of guitarist
Andreas Hansen and drummer Jonas Eriksson. The two have been playing together in different constellations since the late 90's (Murk Moribund, Succubus, Eilan More, Sizm).
They established Dimwind as a duo in 2019 to be able to write without consideration to other members.
But also with a venturous intent of having a genre defying approach and not be so easily branded.
The vision is to let the music float effortlessly over adjacent genres to create a unique
and intriguing soundscape of melancholy and high energy.
This is attained by not conforming within the sometimes far too narrow framework of post-rock, by adding sludgy riffing and a heavier sound. But at the same time not fall into the preconceived form of post-metal, by blending in some catchy harmonies and faster passages. Also a lot of instrumental acts tend to focus more on instrumentalism than actual song writing, Dimwind tend to lean towards the latter and focus on mournful melodies and scandinavian melancholy.
Despite the bravery of claiming uniqueness the duo knows that isn't all true, but they hope that fans of similar acts like Long Distance Calling, Russian Circles, Pelican, Pg.lost and GIAA will appreciate their music.
May 14th 2021 the band independently released their full length debut album
"Slow Wave Violence" on all streaming platforms. An album that was written, recorded and distributed
in a DIY way. In August same year they signed a deal with the British record label Trepanation Recordings.
A limited batch of CD:s and Cassettes was released on September 17th.
The album has gained positive response from listeners and critics from all around the world.
Andreas and Jonas are already in the midst of writing new material,
so stay tuned for new updates!
