Following the 2020 release of the award-winning short film A Darkened Sun, to which they supplied the score, Swedish dark progressive act Wolverine presents an official vinyl release of the moving soundtrack through Sensory Records.The four tracks on Wolverine's A Darkened Sun score revolve around a common theme, but each piece of this concept release is open to it's own interpretation. In it's cinematic form, however, A Darkened Sun tells the story of a young and seemingly lonely woman in distress. Contemplating her existence, she realizes she has lost part of herself while succumbing to the expectations of modern society. Our protagonist embarks on a somewhat existential journey, and as the narrative unfolds across the story's four chapters, she is forced to confront her inner self. The storytelling rests heavily on metaphorical expression, with some instances of intertextuality that pays homage to other works.A Darkened Sun was written, directed, filmed, and produced by Thomas Jansson, and features Rebecca Evans as the protagonist. The lush score created by Wolverine was recorded at SleepyTown Recording by the band's Marcus Losbjer and Per Henriksson and mixed and mastered by Losbjer.Limited vinyl edition is a 4 track EP cut at 45rpm for maximum fidelityA Darkened Sun Awards and Recognition:Winner - Sweden Film Awards, January-February 2021Winner - Lule International Film Festival, January 2021Winner - Best Director Music Video, Kosice International Monthly Film FestivalWinner - Best Music Video, Great Message International Film FestivalFinalist - 4th Dimension Independent Film FestivalFinalist - Best Music Video, Prague International Monthly Film FestivalFinalist - Best Music Video, Kosice International Monthly Film FestivalOfficial Selection - New York Flash Film FestivalOfficial Selection - Boden International Film Festival, Sweden
