Of which the first two are released as demos (tapes released by NWN! Prod). Some songs from the third session are/will be released as bonus songs. There are plans to release the demo material on CD and vinyl. Then we’ll see what’s happening.

Some of the songs were released in demo versions on the 10″ vinyl “Hard Death“. There are at least 10-15 songs written after the album but it has been slow to plan recording sessions. Some gigs have been made over the years. We’ll see if something happens during 2018 or 2019…

Latest news and future plans: An album “Nu Nalkas Domedagen” was released earlier in 2018. It is a collection of demo recordings from a few years back but with new better mix/mastering by Johan Bäckman. At the time of writing, I have nothing new planned for the project.

NIRUCON (aka Nicklas Rudolfsson)
Info: minimalistic one-man-project with one guitar and foot percussion (and some vocals).
Some songs written solely for this project, but also different interpretations of songs i wrote/recorded for Heavydeath, The Funeral Orchestra and more…
Latest news and future plans: I record some simple demos when inspiration comes. Do not have any direct plans, I see it more like a valve in between everything else. If there is a request for live performances, I might be able do it.
