Säffle, Sweden (2004 – present)

Johan Ericson is a multitalented musician and producer with a number of projects of his own. The most distinguished of these is Draconian; a / act which Johan established in 1994. From the profound elevation of this distinct mind calls also the spirit of DOOM:VS; a project born in Säffle, Sweden from the idea of constructing something utterly dark and personal in the unique field of .

Near the closure of 2004 the self produced demo album, Empire of the Fallen, was released; a four track obscure and prominent contribution to the doom metal underground. The demo was very well received and led to a deal with the Finish label Firedoom Music (extreme doom metal specialist label of Firebox Records).

Soon after that the debut album Aeternum Vale was recorded and finally released in 2006 and made very good reviews throughout the doom metal community.

In January 2008 the work began on yet another album. Dead Words Speak was written and recorded by Johan himself at the Draconian rehearsal room. With a more heavy approach regarding the sound than previous efforts the music is both darker and more eerie than ever before. Filled with emotion and despair Dead Words Speak is a personal settlement with the past. Almost crushing sometimes the music don’t lack the evocative melodies that signifies DOOM:VS.

    Это кто тут своё вонючее ебло раскрыл? Отличный сольный проект, И Юхан не зря старался. Я бы проверил как вы фраера недовыебанные сами попробовали записать альбом в стиле funeral doom. Так что если вам, ебанько, не нравится такая музыка - не хуй её обсирать, идите лучше чаёк попейте, и слушаете там свой хоть блэк хоть дэт, и мажтесь говном на здоровье!!!!!

    A Quietly Forming Collapse is a pretty awesome track. Probably the best on the album.

    I really liked Earthless, and I recommend it to anyone who is a fan of doom metal. The thick and heavy guitar tone and the overall bleak atmosphere make for a really good listen.

    Also unimpressed by Earthless. Just like tothefading, I've never been a big fan of Saturnus' vocals, so I thought they did the music a disservice. There are way too many amazing death and funeral doom bands around these days that simply blow Earthless out of the water, unfortunately.

    Earthless is such an uplifting album compared to his other stuff. It's far from being his best imo, but still not bad at all.
