A band that blends Progressive elements with Thrash and classical Metal to produce a very distinctive sound, 66CRUSHER was formed in the late 1990’s by vocalist and guitarist Jarle Olsvoll and drummer Håkon Obdsaija Bergstad (ex DEVAR), in their home town of Bergen. The arrival of Jonny Wolf on guitars and Øystein Kummen on bass in 2001/02 allowed the band to really come into its own, and live appearances and a couple of demos followed, leading to an offer from the US label Misanthropica Enterprises for the release of ”Truth Unmasked”. 2009 saw one more change in the lineup, with the arrival of Martin Legreid to replace the departing Wolf. Legreid, guitarist with HELLISH OUTCAST, is considered by many to be the godfather of the Bergen Thrash/Death Metal scene. More information about the band can be found at http://www.66crusher.com
