Sörskogen - Mordet i Grottan

Wikipedia Entry
Sörskogen (meaning the southern woods in Swedish) is a Swedish progressive rock project Mikael Åkerfeldt of Opeth and Dan Swanö started for fun. Heavily influenced by 1970s prog rock bands. Not much is known about the project, save a few references made by Mikael in interviews. Only one track entitled Mordet i Grottan (Murder in the Cave) has appeared on the net (with Mikael's permission), though a few more are rumoured to have been recorded.

Just a little correction which I believe is correct: the project name refers to a place/forest in Huddinge just outside of Stockholm. I'm not completely sure if Åkerfeldt had that in mind but as the contact details on the Orchid album was his address in Bandhagen at the time, which also is in the southern parts of Stockholm, I think I have managed to get the pieces together.

Excellent song however.

Yes, it is indeed a forest outside Stockholm. Southern forest would be "söderskogen".
