Former DARK TRANQUILITY guitarist NIKLAS SUNDIN streaming new bodies MITOCHONDRIAL SUN and Gold EP
Niklas Sundin, best known as a founding member and former guitarist of Swedish metal titans Dark Tranquility, has released a brand new EP with his ever-changing and exciting solo project Mitochomdrial Sun.
After 15 albums as a metal guitarist, with Mitochomdrial Sun, Sundin began his first public forays into different musical realms in 2020. Following his solo debut last year and critically acclaimed successor Sju Pulsarer at the start of 2021, the multi-instrumentalist has just shared his new EP in its entirety accompanied by an exclusive interview with Sundin’s label, Argonauta Records.
The Bodies And Gold EP features six tracks of dystopian electronic music in a wide variety of moods and is now available on all digital platforms. The already sold out limited edition vinyl version is (as those who pre-ordered it already know) somewhat delayed due to the supply chain issues currently facing the entire vinyl pressing industry.

The heart of Mitochomdrial Sun’s music is electronic and instrumental, ranging from quiet meditations on space and time to relentless cosmic storms; from a sonic journey to fast, urgent and chaotic songs of the darkest black metal sound, but Mitochomdrial Sun is full of emotionally charged melodies and atmospheric soundscapes hidden beneath the surface. Sitting somewhere between the contemplative and brooding debut album and the intense Sju Pulsarer, every song on this brand new EP – from the cinematic, slow opening to the industrial closing track at full throttle – differs greatly from one another in style, but share the same vibe: dystopian and cold, but organic and sometimes hopeful.
