SVART Records is at the heart of some of the most exciting and boundary pushing releases that cross our paths here at Roadburn HQ. For Roadburn Redux we’re delighted to have teamed up with the venerable label to present a handful of performances by bands that truly epitomise what the label is all about. It gives us great pleasure to introduce these bands to you, and bring them to your homes this April under the banner of Svart Sessions.

We’re thrilled to welcome Iterum Nata to the Svart Sessions at Roadburn this April. For the uninitiated, Iterum Nata is the solo project created by Hexvessel’s lead guitarist, Jesse Heikkinen. Embracing psychedelic occult folk, we can expect progressive rock influences and ambient interludes in this very special performance.

Having played in such bands as Hexvessel, The Aeon, Kauko Röyhkä & The Boots, Heikkinen released his third album under the Iterum Nata moniker at the tail end of 2020 – via the Svart imprint, Secret Trees, which is overseen by Kvohst (Hexvessel/Grave Pleasures). Kvohst describes Iterum Nata as “really personal folk for people who like their songs straight from the heart and albums that take you on a journey. Brings to mind Van Zandt, Bo Hansson, King Crimson, the more beautiful sections of Opeth’s proggier works and of course the Finnish psych and prog DNA flowing through Jesse’s veins. I would think this record would appeal to anyone who enjoys Hexvessel and I’m proud to be able to present it under our banner for outsider and underground works.”

Heikkinen adds:

“After a long year of silence and introspection I am truly thankful for this opportunity to share my songs with you. Even if we are not in the same place in the physical world, it doesn’t mean we can’t connect through music. I am looking forward to bringing Iterum Nata’s music to the screens of the hallowed Roadburn Festival for you all. Let us keep the flame burning.”

Iterum Nata plays an intimate solo show of atmospheric electric guitar, exclusively for Roadburn Redux!

Iterum Nata will perform at Svart Sessions – part of Roadburn Redux which will take place between April 16-18.
