TREPANERINGSRITUALEN (Gothenburg, SWE)
Trepaneringsritualen explores themes of religion, magick and the hidden realms of consciousness, taking its musical cues from the old school of ritual ambient & death industrial. Rhythmic and seething at times, and oozing forward with a creeping sense of desolation at others, Trepaneringsritualen conjures forth bleak but mesmerizing visions of the end-times.
Trepaneringsritualen, one of many nom de guerre of Thomas Martin Ekelund, has been active since 2008, with releases on labels like Cold Spring, Pesanta Urfolk, Malignant, Silken Tofu, Hanson, iDEAL, Release The Bats and Black Horizons to name but a few.
T × R × P have performed countless live rituals across the world, including festival such as Heavy Electronics III, Stella Natura, Wave Gothic Treffen, and opening slots for a broad spectrum of artists including Old Man Gloom, Circle, Bölzer, Brighter Death Now and many more.
