Today, unique Swedish rock band GAUPA are pleased to share with you the third single from their forthcoming album, Myriad, which will be released on November 18, 2022 via Nuclear Blast Records.

Hauntingly atmospheric tune 'Moloken' emerges disguised as an innocent ballad, before it ultimately reveals its dark, heavy core. This is GAUPA at their most introverted, striking in their unpredictability, yet they always find the right moment to let loose and simply let the guitars do the talking.

The song comes with a lyric video, which you can watch below.

GAUPA's sophomore album Myriad features eight diverse and exquisitely crafted songs that keep strolling around between progressive rock, psychedelic & stoner rock, doom and folk. An eclectic and unpredictable, yet very mature record by a band that is destined to win over any open-minded music enthusiast from each branch the heavy rock spectrum has to offer.

"Moloken is a Swedish word that according to Google translate means “the moloch”. Whether this is true, I can’t tell you. 
It comes down to the concept of Swedish melancholy - to be downcast and feeling like a shred. 
This is a highly Swedish thing and I would say it peaks in November when the fire leafs have fallen and the trees are naked patiently awaiting their winter coat of frost and snow. 
This is when you really start to feel the darkness. It seeps into every inch of your being. 
I think this feeling is captured in this song, which is not really a happy go lucky tune. 
Whether it comes from you, the world, a strung out relationship or just the weather isn’t really important. There is just this feeling.
But as soon as the snow sets, the sky lightens and another wave of hope enters."
