This is the fifth album by In The Labyrinth, called SAMAS ANTARAL. The label behind this release is Transubstans records, a subdivision of Record Heaven.
The songs, of which a vast majority are instrumental, were recorded mainly around 1992-94, hence making it a parallel project to the first In The Labyrinth album The Garden of Mysteries. But there are also a few tracks or parts of tracks recorded as early as 1973 and 74, while other bits and pieces have been added more recently.

One trail to heaven

SAMAS ANTARAL is based on a saga written by Stefan Ottman and Mikael Gejel in the mid to late eighties and was published as a series in a fantasy mag- azine called ’Drömskrinet’.
If only sporadically, Peter helped illus- trate some of these editions.
