SKYFIRE Post New Song and Announce Digital-Only EP Details

Swedish progressive death metal act SKYFIRE has made its new song “Esoteric,” available for download on their myspace page at

The band will release a 4-song, digital-only EP entitled Fractal in July via Pivotal Rockordings. Fractal is made up of songs that were written between 2004’s Spectral and their yet-to-be-released September 2009 Esoteric album. SKYFIRE bassist Martin Hanner comments on the band’s decision to release the EP: “Since we spent way too much time in the studio writing and recording and too little time giving anything back to the fans, we discussed with our label about releasing a few songs we wrote in 2005 or so. We recorded, mixed, and mastered these alongside the Esoteric songs with new vocalist Jocke and guitarist Johan in order to make them available to our fans. We knew these songs weren’t going to make our full-length, because by the time we had signed a deal, we were flowing with new ideas. However, letting these songs go unreleased was always something sad for us, so it’s awesome that they will be available to the fans digitally with exclusive artwork and everything.”

 Fractal marks the first official SKYFIRE release to feature new members Johan Reinholdz (guitars; ANDROMEDA, NONEXIST) and Joakim Karlsson (vocals; MARK:BLACK). All music was recorded, mixed and mastered at Powernest Studios with the exception of the track “Esoteric,” which was mixed and mastered by Jonas Kjellgren (SCAR SYMMETRY, SONIC SYNDICATE, ZONARIA, THE ABSENCE). Vocals for all tracks were produced by THE FORSAKEN guitarist Patrik Persson.
