Mörk Gryning (Swedish for "dark dawn") arose during the year 1993 and both founding members Draakh Kimera and Goth Gorgon started out to create their mystical brand of black metal. After 2 demos in '93 and '94, they signed with the infamous Swedish extreme metal label NO FASHION RECORDS (Marduk, Dark Funeral, Dissection, Katatonia, Opthalamia...).
During May 1995 the duo (both members beeing only 16 & 19 years) entered the Unisound studios together with Dan Swanö to record their debut album "Tusen år har gått"; a nine track theme album about the story of Nidas, Eldon, Erin, and Cahn. It included lyrics in Swedish and English and managed to create a beautiful classic from the early days of the Scandinavian Black Metal.
This re-release comes using the original artwork available, designed with the original No Fashion release in mind, taking elements from the original layout with attention to detail and adding new, optimized parts. An expanded booklet includes the classic 90`s band photos, unpublished images, and material from the album area. Instead of usual liner notes, a newly conducted interview around the album and early time of the band by Thomas Väänänen is included. Layout by John Haughm.
