Formed in 2007 in Bergen, Norway, by guitarists HeavyHarms and R.I.P Meister, BYFROST originally started life as a four-piece, before settling as a power-house trio composed of HeavyHarms on guitars and vocals, R.I.P Meister on five-string bass and HELLISH OUTCAST’s Alkolust on drums. Their music has been described variously as Blackened Thrash and Black ‘n Roll, but whatever term you want to apply to it, the end result is always the same – a neck-breaking head banging experience
The band’s first album “Black Earth”, which included a guest appearance by ENSLAVED’s Arve Isdal, was released on Painkiller Records in April 2010 to much critical acclaim, and demonstrated the band’s ability to seamelessly merge cold, dark riffs with a touch of the melodic.
In early 2011 BYFROST inked a deal with Germany’s AFM Records and “Of Death” was released in June of the same year. Recorded at the Conclave and Earshot Studios in the band’s home town of Bergen, Produced by ENSLAVED’s Herbrand Larsen and Byfrost, Co-Produced by ENSLAVED’s Arve Isdal.
BYFROST’s reputation as skilled musicians coupled with a dynamic stage presence has been consolidated by a series of live dates both at home and abroad, which included 2010 appearances at the Hole in the Sky and Karmoygeddon Festivals, the launch of Terrorizer Magazine’s Norwegian Grindhouse venture, and, along with ENSLAVED, at a special concert to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the Garage, Bergen’s foremost venue. 2011 saw the band perform at the Party.San festival in Germany, at Bloodstock in the UK and a return to Hole In The Sky for a special Showcase performance
