In today’s society the old folk tales can be thought to belong to the delusions of the past. With their groovy riffs and beautiful melodies, Lykantropi takes us via the werewolf transformation back to the rock and folk music of the early 70’s. Sweet harmonies reminiscent of The Mamas & The Papas are layered with electric guitars and flutes into a witch’s brew. A witch brew that also can be compared to other mighty bands such as Fleetwood Mac, Coven and Blue Öyster Cult.  The mysterious, inexplicable and obscure have always been what primarily defines Lykantropi. Rock music that comes from the Scandinavian forest and wilderness, deforestation and mire, bottomed within our folklore, myths and legends. We can not see or touch it, but definitely feel it, experience it and pass it on. That kind of art is more difficult to define, and to master, but it is probably what has made the sextet from Karlstad one of the most promising new additions that has entered Sweden's rock scene in many years.  Lykantropi was created in 2013 by Martin Östlund. The critically acclaimed self-titled debut album (2017) and second album 'Spirituosa' (2019), was released via Lightning Records and re-released as an exclusive limited edition version at their current record label Despotz Records. In 2020, Lykantropi released their third album 'Tales to be Told' which has been praised all over the world.
