The long Nordic winter is an ancient fount of story and myth – of tales quietly shared around the bonfire, and of songs chanted in dingy drinking halls by brash minstrels. Tales of struggle and triumph. Tales of gods, demons and men. From this rich ore the music of Dimhav is forged and tempered, channeling images of deep forests and star-lit vistas into adamant sound.
Musically, The Boreal Flame combines diverse elements of progressive and power metal with expansive atmospheres and rich harmonies. With powerful, soaring vocals and fiery instrumental action it will appeal to fans of bands like Wintersun, Lost Horizon and Symphony X.
Based in Stockholm, Sweden, Dimhav consists of brothers Staffan Lindroth (Guitars, Bass, Keyboard leads) and Olle Lindroth (Drums, Keyboard arrangements), joined on The Boreal Flame by Daniel Heiman (Vocals).
The album was mixed by Staffan Lindroth and mastered by Jacob Hansen.
