Dimwind is an instrumental, alternative, progressive, post-metal band from Gothenburg, Sweden, consisting of guitarist Andreas Hansen
(also bass and keyboards) and drummer Jonas Eriksson. The two have played together in different constellations since the late 90's (Murk Moribund, Succubus, Eilan More, Sizm) and finally established Dimwind as a duo in 2019.
Their musical vision is to create emotional soundscapes that capture and retain the listener's focus by constantly being in motion. With melancholic sadness and sweet harmonies combined with crushing guitars and cascading crescendos, they strive to provoke both reflection and empowerment. Their sound can be briefly described as progressive post-metal with post-rock aesthetics.
The theme that drapes their music tends to introspect the human struggle against difficulties in the emotional and mental realm.
Fans of similar acts such as Long Distance Calling, Russian Circles, Pelican, Pg.lost and GIAA may appreciate Dimwind's catalog.
May 14th. 2021, the band independently released their full-length debut album Slow Wave Violence on all streaming platforms.
An album that depicts an evocative narrative of mental illness that intends to lead the listener through hope and despair.
On September 17th. the same year, they signed with UK indie label Trepanation Recordings. A companionship that provides limited edition CD and cassette releases from the debut and the entire following catalog.
April 15th. 2022, Dimwind teamed up with the American blackgaze act Breaths to release the epos-like split EP Seasons, with the intention to remind people, in the midst of a global pandemic and an ongoing war, of the ultimate threat that we must not lose sight of - humanitys abuse of the planet. Both bands presented a song of 15 minutes each.
Their second full-length album The Futility Of Breathing was released on April 21st 2023. A piece of work that turned out to hit closer to home than anyone could have ever expexted. They set out to follow up the story from their debut album by exploring a state of grief after losing a loved one. But during the creation of the album, one of them suffered a terrible tragedy, when Andreas' wife suddenly passed away.
The sadness and emotional turmoil that Andreas went through during that time colored the result and the album became a true cathartic experience.
Jonas and Andreas write, record and produce in a DIY way and are always planning for their next release.
