Dol Kruug is my third and most extreme music project. Fusing alien electronics with industrial and death metal I have created a groovy but disgusting portal to my darkest side. The idea to form 3 “Dol” projects to express my space metal creations was formed back in 2003-2004. Dol Kruug were born after composing the song “Eat Me” in 2003. It was then instantly clear to me that I would need a third music vessel to express my bleakest and weirdest feelings.

Dol Kruug consists of me handling all the instruments and programming and my good friend Jorgen doing all sorts of inhuman growls, screams, squeals and other lovely sound effects.

My inspiration for Dol Kruug derives from my love of self-sarcasm, cheesy horror movies and the absurd anti-art movement Dadaism. I am also inspired by the dark side of the human psyche and various other issues deriving from corrupted societal and cultural activities.

Dol Kruug Discography


Released on the 15th of May 2023, I have involuntarily timed the release of the track "Why?" exactly 9 years after "Eat me".

"Why?" is a frantic industrial and somewhat dancey track that feels like an explosive slap in the face.

It is inspired by the "Why me?", "Why now?", "Why this?", "Why that?" questions that we ask directly to our cosmic overlords.

I have explained some of my thinking behind "Why?" in this video:

Eat Me

Released on the 15th of May 2014, “Eat Me” is the debut Dol Kruug CD. Together with the Dadaist philosophy of honoring the absurd and rejecting reality, “Eat Me” deals mainly with my criticism against factory farming and animal cruelty.

In addition “Eat Me” portrays my disgust towards the social, ecological and political injustice happening in my country and in our planet right now.

My biggest challenge in this album was my decision to produce 10 video clips, one for each song of the CD. It took me tons of time and resources to accomplish such a feat, almost as much time as producing the music itself.

The future will tell if it was a clever idea, for now I am very happy with the result and I’d do it again with the same detailed masochism if I could turn back time.
