Formed in 1991 as a full-fledge gigging band, Krokmiten was shelved by Simlev in 1995 and reactivated in 2005 as a studio project exclusively. At the helm of the project, composer Simlev works with carefully selected session musicians from album to album. Krokmiten specializes in conceptual and experimental one-track albums built from the ground up like a movie score or a classical piece.
Favoring a DIY approach and releasing music for free is part of Krokmiten's concept and ideology.
