Most of us associate guitar player Anders Björler with chewing guitars and high-energy metal assaults displayed in At The Gates and The Haunted. But when Anders Björler makes his debut as a solo artist he chooses a whole different path. His debut solo album will be called Antikythera and "focuses around his love for Italian movie soundtracks from the 60s, 70s and 80s and adds a healthy dose of English prog rock, jazz, post-rock and a pinch of Swedish folk music."


  • Anders Björler - Guitars, Mellotron, Moog
  • Morgan Ågren - Drums & Percussion
  • Dick Lövren - Bass
  • Carl Svensson - Additional Electric & Acoustic Guitars
  • Peter Wiberg - Piano
  • Anders Gabrielson - Tenor Saxophone

    Anders Björler explained: "Even though this is not a metal album I wanted a lively production with great dynamics. There is also a certain security about collaborating with someone I have worked with in the past. He is someone I can trust."

    And he will not stop playing metal: "Absolutely not. But this is the album I wanted to do at this time. Even with The Haunted and At The Gates there were melancholic and progressive parts that I have developed further with Antikythera."

    His solo debut album will be out on Razzia Notes, November 6th, 2013. Antikythera was mixed by Tue Madsen, known for his work with The Haunted among others. The artwork was created by Costin Chioreanu.

    I'm not familiar with the work of any of his bands, but this sounds really cool.
