Progressive metal label Sensory Records presents the limited vinyl edition of WOLVERINE’s score for the award-winning short film A Darkened Sun, issuing the record’s details and preorders ahead of its late February release date.
A Darkened Sun was released in 2020 and was greeted with acclaim at a wide array of independent film festivals. The four tracks on WOLVERINE’s score for the picture revolve around a common theme, but each piece of this concept release is open to its own interpretation. In its 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.
Following the film’s release, Sensory Records issued the lush score on all digital platforms and is excited to now offer the deluxe vinyl edition. Cut at 45RPM for maximum audio delivery, this limited pressing delivers A Darkened Sun in a worldwide retail run of 300 copies on black vinyl and an extremely limited run of 100 copies on dark red vinyl exclusive to the band and label mailorder.
