Thank you so much Global Music Awards and of course the wonderful and highly skilled jury!

The Score I made for “The Huntress: Rune of the Dead” have been given love from many media outlets all over the World. I am very greatful for it. Here are some qoutes from the Reviews:
“There is a dark and deep almost guttural pulsating and ominous sound to the score, with even the more melodious moments including an underlying sense of uneasiness. The composer also gives the work a folk or rustic sound via the instrumentation he brings into play to create a dramatic but at the same time a pleasing soundtrack. The score also features the work of Swedish Artist and performer who Mohlavyr places her own unique sound upon the work which is ethereal and alluring. The track THE VIKING FAMILY is probably the best cue in which to hear the combined efforts of the composer and artists Runberg and Mohlavyr. It is a haunting and very enjoyable listening experience, with subtle musical colours and an assortment of textures combining to fashion an attractive and somewhat hypnotic sound. There are numerous sounds and styles within this work, it has to it a subtleness in places, and intimacy and fragility, but there is also a raw, driving and hard-hitting musical entity that raises its head every so often to great effect. The combination of so many sounds and styles make for a soundtrack that is innovative and entertaining.”

Once it was titled “Viking Saga: Rune of the Dead” but closing in on the release the film have a new title. The official title will be “The Huntress – Rune of the Dead”.
An North American trailer, with focus on the more scary parts of the film, has been edited with some (mostly in the begining) of my score. The Score is completed and it ended up being over 80 minutes of Music! I am both the Composer and one of the Producers of the film that will have a US in the fall.
I am still composing music for the second season of Black Lake (Svartsjön) and will go from that to compose the music (with Moneybrother) to the docuementary I produced. I have also composed the music to my long time friend Daniel Bezares’s TV-series pilot Ahmed.
During the summer (2018) the film “Viking Saga: Rune of the Dead” will be shot in Sweden. I will compose the music. Director is Rasmus Titzitis and the film is written by Faravid Svalfors af Ugglas and Rasmus Tirzitis.
