On Ex Oriente LuxADARRAK showcases a mixture of established (Headcrusher, Norse, The Amenta, Dispiteous, Sol de Sangre, Somnium Nox) and emerging musicians that are both local and global. The album boasts guest appearances by Marty Friedman of Megadeth fame, as well as other local musicians (Üllermach, Boxchild).

The album was mixed and mastered by the one and only Dan Swanö at Unisound Studios. Says Swanö about the forthcoming album:  “Adarrak is truly progressive since they are not afraid to implement all kinds of metal into the mix, anything from epic leads to insane blast parts.”

For fans of the extreme yet progressive with a touch of the Gothenburg sound.
