Oak Pantheon / Bio

Oak Pantheon consists of two songwriters and good friends: Sami Sati and Tanner Swenson. They've written music and played together throughout much of their teenage years before forming Oak Pantheon in the early months of 2011. With Sean Golyer engineering, co-producing and mixing the project, Sami began recording "Architect of the Void pt I". Tanner hopped on to assist with various parts of the songwriting until the song was released on its own in March. After receiving a far greater positive response than was initially expected, they continued to write and complete what is now known as "The Void" EP, which was digitally released on July 12, 2011.

Writing hasn't stopped since, culminating in their full-length debut "From a Whisper" which saw a physical release on September 25, 2012. Fresh off the heels of an extremely well-received album, Oak Pantheon continues to diligently write, produce, and advance their sound to new heights.

"With 'From a Whisper', Oak Pantheon are poised to join the ranks of America's best black metal cross-over bands..."
-Islander, No Clean Singing

"Oak Pantheon never let the listener forget for a moment that the natural world they pay homage to is as dark as it is breathtaking, full of teeth, claws, and sudden blizzards. If complex, shivering, blackened folk metal that places a hot muzzle to your throat and lets your blood leak out beautifully into the snow is for you, 'From a Whisper' will be one of your favorite records of the year."
-Natalie Zina Walschots, Exclaim.ca

"The compositions are tight, the acoustic parts flow like a river instead of meandering around meaninglessly, all of the album’s 63 minutes are well used by Oak Pantheon, and the record sounds like a truly heartfelt piece of music that the two members of the band invested in greatly."
-Magnus Altkula, Sputnik Music
