Luleå, Sweden (2001 – 2008, 2014 – present)

The Duskfall are a melodic death metal band from Sweden created by Mikael Sandorf (Helltrain, Gates of Ishtar) in 2001. They have it all - the sheer power of finest thrash riffing, death metal grooves, and out-of-this-world haunting melodies. They released a demo in 2001, and 4 albums between 2001-07. They split-up in 2008 but have returned in 2014 for more!

Formed by guitarist Mikael Sandorf in Luleå, Sweden during 2001, The Duskfall emerged from the ashes of the legendary but short-lived melodic death metal band Gates of Ishtar. Before they were named The Duskfall - at the time they were called Soulash - the group suffered from a number of line-up changes and technical problems with both Tommi Konu (bass) and Urban Carlsson (drums) leaving the band. After months of searching, an old friend from Gates of Ishtar, Oskar Karlsson, came to the rescue as a drummer and Kaj Molin replaced Tommi on bass. Finally all seemed in place with a full line-up and in summer of 2001 their 5-track demo Deliverance was released with Sandorf performing vocal duties. Shortly after, vocalist Kai Jaakkola joined the band and all 5 demo tracks were re-recorded and re-arranged for their full length debut Frailty was released November 2002, produced by Daniel Bergstrand and Örjan Örnkloo (In Flames, Darkane, Thyrfing) who also mixed, engineered, and performed guest keyboards and guitar.

    From The Duskfall's Facebook: "Friends of the fallen: we have to inform you of some major events in The Duskfall camp. Magnus Klavborn has parted with the band due to the difficulties in sustaining a satisfying creative process and synchronizing all the details around band activities. It is to hard to maintain a good production rate with such a large physical distance between the members. There's no bad blood in this decision and the vocal duties will be handled by Jonatan Storm from now on. Here is a teaser of what to expect from the upcoming release. The preproduction is going excellent and we can't wait to record the next album and hit the stage and meet you guys!"

    i still don't know why they didn't get pierre tornkvist to do the vocals. it makes zero sense. probably some dumb nonsense like "he didn't want to tour with us". they could've spent more time on the riffs as well. even their maligned 2008 album had some cool stuff on it.

    I did need a few days to get into the new singer after having Kai in my brain, but now it finally got me! A great album with a unique new vocalist.

    The album is just bland. There's nothing interesting, nothing memorable.

    The 4 albums with Kai Jaakkola on vocals are good! Another band ruined.

    Where The Tree Stands Dead is so damn good, It's for you who liked the old Engel because of the new singer Magnus Klavborn, old singer in Engel.

    Lol. The newest album is shit compared to the first which I'm listening to right now. Riffs are interesting? You can barely hear them and the new vocalist is awful.
