The band

Mara formed in 2012 when Dimitrios and Erik joined forces in a mold infested bunker under the crime-ridden streets of Tynnered. Against the backdrop of gunshots and burning cars, apocalyptic sounds came crashing from inside the bunker… In 2014 the recording of our demo “Usurpers to the Crown” was released and several local live performances followed. In 2017 we managed to record our live performance both with audio and video, this resulted in the release of the live EP “Live at Sticky Fingers”.

Mara always creates as a unit; endless hours of jamming has now been utilized in their debut album “Djävulstoner”, which is set to be released in the spring of 2021. Our goal is to deliver hard hitting riffs, innovative song structures and an rebellious attitude to modern music. Inspiration is drawn from the state of the world as well as astronomical and cosmic currents.

Misty metal from the frozen shores of Sweden, fusing the sounds of misanthropy and spiritual seeking.
