MEADOWS END - Sojourn Digipak CD
Within their over-two decades of journey, the band underwent to many lineup
changes, retaining only Jan Dahlberg (guitars) and Mats Helli (bass) from the
original lineup. MEADOWS END have always worked as a six-piece act, but
most recently they converted as a quintet.
Having released a couple of demos and mini albums, the band finally released
their debut full length, entitled as Ode to Quietus, in 2010. The critically acclaimed
second album “The Sufferwell” did not have to rest in the wait list for too long; it
came out in 2014, a year after its antecedent EP “Devilspeed Loathekill”.
In 2015, Meadows End decided to revive their old concept songs from the demo

of long release cycle on YouTube with one song being released each month. Later
the band released the entire third album “Sojourn” as a unit. This release saw

and a heavy groove combined with aggressive vocals to create their own blend
of today’s modern metal.
