From Swala, Sweden Black Lion Records

Farsoth from Swala, Sweden

FARSOTH was founded in Sala (Sweden) by Jari Kuusisto in 2020. Shortly thereafter Joakim Mikiver vocals, Jonas Magnusson bass, and Kristofer Elemyr guitar were contacted to join the band. The search for the right drummer turned out to be a more difficult task than expected. Several months later the place was still not filled so Jari decided to contact his good friend Chris Barkensjö (Lik) to help with the drum recording for the album. All said and done, FARSOTH had 9 songs recorded but still no permanent drummer.

In early 2021 William Parkstam was recruited as the band's permanent drummer. FARSOTH rehearsed for the first time as a full band in Williams' hometown of Uppsala. Since then, they have released several videos, along with their debut album, The Plague, on all major streaming platforms.

Shortly after the album's release in late 2022, William decided to leave the band due to other obligations, and Kristofer sadly passed away. William was quickly replaced by Florian Rehn on drums and in early 2023 Johnny Nymark joined the band as their new guitarist. At the beginning of 2023, Swedish record label Black Lion Records reached out to FARSOTH offering the band a record deal. So with a fresh record deal and more than 14 new songs, FARSOTH is looking forward to seeing what 2023 will bring.
