We have a very special announcement of the newest signing to the MMR roster and not only do we announce their signing with great pride, but we also present for your enjoyment a premiere of the first single from the band’s debut album courtesy of the mighty Outlaws Of The Sun.

This is a very special release for us as it is our first release completely in Swedish- it’s an astounding offering with expansive braun and immersive beauty.

Without further ado, please welcome Dröög, ‘mythical lumberjack jazz’ from northern Dalarna.

The band tells us that “Becoming part of the majestic family feels almost too good to be true. We had our eyes on MMR right from the start and sincerely hoped that we, Dröög, would be able to become a part of and contribute to Majestic’s already fantastic spectrum of music. We stamp the premiere of Dröög, both for the band and the upcoming album, with the Majestic logo with pride.”

We at Majestic are equally proud to welcome Dröög to the MMR crew as their unique brilliance is undeniable and intensely gripping. And for us as a label, it’s a true pleasure to bring our fans a release that’s so fantastic, but also solely in our mother tongue.

Their first single, »Blodörn« (translated to English as ‘Blood Eagle’) explores the notion that through revenge you will be set free, but at what cost?

Through a dynamically orchestrated amalgamation of melodically mysterious and cinematically framed composition, Dröög tells a soulfully gripping, hook rich and riff driven, bluesy, stoner doom adjacent yet exploratorily progressive story from the darkest parts of history taking you on a journey where magic, revenge and the lusts of the flesh go hand in hand.

While exploring truths and tales that have been told for generations, some just as relevant today as they were eons ago, Dröög roams languidly through the eras and ages like chapters in history- sometimes in the light yet equally celebratory in their profound shadow. Lore and truth intertwine, and fairy tales emerge- ancient allegory both in the manmade and the natural world which touched every living soul, rich and poor from every walk of life.

One thing these stories have common is that they want to be retold and Dröög are the vehicle through which these tales come to life.

Dröög started with Magnus as a one-man band, a band to be able to perform chord progressions, rhythms, and lyrics without necessarily following the flow but without becoming progressive. The goal was simply to “write music, completely without reservation”. The vision evolved and Dröög quickly expanded into a duo, the addition of Daniel adding additional vocal melodies as a soulful instrument in of itself. The album was then recorded as a duo but today boasts a full crew, Anders and Christian on guitar and Jon on bass, enabling them to deliver the music live as well.
