DÖDAREN is all about never disposing a single riff. And groove. It started off in late 2010, as founding members Martin and Jon recruited Fredrik and Eric to try out some melodies and riffs they had been writing during some dubious late-night acoustic sessions that same year. Rapidly, songs emerged and the debut EP “Flyttar In” was recorded as a rehearsal room demo and released online in August 2011. The EP quickly won broad recognition and inspired the band to stay on the same route. Half a year later, the band recorded their full-length debut “Maen”. It’s up for release on Transubstans Records in December 2012, almost exactly one year after it was recorded at Kanon Musik Studios, Falkenberg, Sweden.

Salma Gandhi is a swedish instrumental band formed 2005 in Malmö.
The members had been active at the stoner/metal/punkscene in Malmö for years
and was hungry to create something totally different. After hours of jam sessions
and a lot of fun they started to find some kind of a sound and concept and started making compositions.
The musical genre is sometimes described as 70´s filmmusic or stonerjazz and the goal of the band
is to give the recipient a somewhat narrative musical trip with a gallery of strange characters
and different murky landscapes popping up along the way. 2012 they will release their debut album
”The Quest For Nonsense Never Ends” at Transubstans records. Some of the main influenses are
Pink Floyd, Oddjob, The Ethiopiques, Boris Vian and Alfred Jarry.
