World Below  


Formed by Jonas Kjellgren in 1999, World Below has or had several members featured in other Swedish bands (typical of the Scandinavian metal scene, it seems almost everyone is in two or three bands at the same time). Kjellgren’s main work is more in the death metal camp, but here the focus is traditional doom, solidly heavy but not as dreary as some bands in the genre. Mikael Danielsson’s vocals are kind of unique – his is not a particularly strong voice, but his somewhat relaxed style (paired with some tasteful keyboards) give this band a slightly upbeat quality. Mind you, this is still doom metal we’re talking about, this is not happy music, but there’s a laidback quality here that keeps things interesting. This band isn’t as well known as other Swedish doom bands such as Candlemass or even Witchcraft, but this is a quality band that deserves a listen.
