In the latter part of 2019, ANGSTSKRÍG recorded Skyggespil at Hikikomori Studio with producer Frederik Brandt Jakobsen at the helm. It was by his hand that ANGSTSKRÍG’s particular take on the Nordic sound took form.
To furthermore give a very diverse album even more assorted flavors, the duo called upon a variety of gifted musical comrades to take part in the creation of Skyggespil thereby elevating the songs to new levels. 

Yet, the story of ANGSTSKRÍG took its beginning decades earlier, sometime towards the end of the last millennium. From a young age, the two were taken under the wing of a common mentor, under who’s guidance they taught themselves how to play. How to perform. How to create. How to be artistically curious. How to express themselves.

How to challenge boundaries and convictions. Although the steps in the very beginning were small, this marked the offset of the musical journey.

Though life separated the two and took them down diverging paths, where one pursued the road of knowledge, the other a path of entertainment, they never lost touch, and the idea to reunite at some point remained prevalent.
So, after gaining invaluable experiences and due to their respective directions in life taking new, dramatic turns, the time was ripe to create what would become ANGSTSKRÍG
