Stjärnfält is a musical project led by M. Originally from Australia, at some point the mysterious multi-instrumentalist relocated to Sweden, where he still lives to this day.
Lapporten is the project sophomore album and follows two years after the debut Ascension. These four, atmospheric, trancey tracks are a detail of M.’s travels through northern Sweden, and attempt to capture it’s contradicting nature of isolation and expanse; bleakness and beauty.
Let Stjärnfält guide you up the “Kebnekaise”, Sweden’s highest mountain, wander with him through the green area of “Bruksleden” and behold the magnificent “Polarsken” and Séracs. Lapporten itself stands for “The Lapponian Gate”, a u-shaped valley located in Lapland.
Merging dreamy, hypnotic atmospheric metal with icy electronic trance soundscapes, M. describes Stjärnfält‘s music as “melancholic optimism”.
Come visit northern Sweden with Stjärnfält’s Lapporten from May 20th, 2022.
