It is no secret that the music of OFDRYKKJA has never sounded quite the same. As they strive to keep evolving on a personal level, this is naturally reflected in the band's music as well. While "Gryningsvisor" was more of a traditional atmospheric/ambient black metal album, "After The Storm" ventures away, off the beaten path, and proceeds to distance itself from some of the more traditional elements that are usually prominent in metal music. Even though "After The Storm" can best be described as a mix between post-rock, acoustic, pop and traditional Swedish folk music, OFDRYKKJA will argue that the spirit of metal and their roots are still prominent and can be heard throughout the album. The somber mood and atmosphere would be the one thing that has remained constant in their music throughout the years, and that is unlikely to change anytime soon, but never without the presence of hope. A beam of light piercing through the darkness.
The album features female vocals by Miranda Samuelsson and guest appearances by Georg Börner (ColdWorld, Sangre de Muerdago) on nyckelharpa (key harp) and viola, and has been mastered by Markus Stock (Empyrium).
