In 1998, Nicklas Barker and Peter Nordins of Anekdoten, along with Stefan Dimle (Landberk, Paatos) and Reine Fiske (Landberk, Morte Macabre, Paatos, The Guild) created the album Symphonic Holocaust. The album mostly consists of covered themes from horror movies, such as Cannibal Holocaust and Rosemary's Baby. The music is instrumental and characterised by improvisation and heavy use of mellotron and synthesizers.
Nicklas Barker has since 2010 been involved in a side project called My Brother The Wind. A debut CD of improvised psychedelic rock entitled Twilight In The Crystal Cabinet was released in May 2010.
