Den Saakaldte is a Norwegian black metal supergroup, founded in 2006 by Mikael Sykelig, featuring members of Shining, 1349 and Dødheimsgard, among others.[1][2][3][4]

They played their first concert at Inferno Festival in 2008, headlining the John Dee stage on the second day.[5] The reactions were positive.[6][7][8]

Their debut album, Øl, Mørke og Depresjon, which was released in March 2008 through Eerie Art records, has been described as "a quite unique sounding album,"[9] as well as "there's space for aggression and brutality, but also for dark atmospheres and ancient feelings."[3]

The band released their second album, entitled All Hail Pessimism, on February 2, 2009.[10]

On 27 March 2011, Niklas Kvarforth, vocalist and frontman of Den Saakaldte, announced that he would be quitting the band to focus on Shining.[11]
