BLACK-FOLK METALLERS GALAR ANNOUNCE LIVE DEBUT

Posted: April 10, 2011 in DARK ESSENCE RECORDS, GRAVDAL, OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASES

Since the release of their second full-length album “Til Alle Heimsens Endar” last year, Norwegian Black-Folk Metallers GALAR have been recruiting live members and preparing to take the band live.  With founders M. Kristiansen (screams and rhythm guitar) and A. B. Lauritzen (clean vocals and bassoon) now having been joined by Specter (GRAVDAL, AETERNUS) on lead guitar,  Phobos (GRAVDAL, AETERNUS, MALSAIN) on drums and Simon Futterlieb on bass, GALAR will make its live debut on the 19th April at the legendary Elm Street Rock Cafe’ in Oslo.  Also appearing will be Dark Essence Records label-mates SULPHUR and the Oslo band FORCEFED HORSEHEAD.

Starting out originally as a two-man studio Project in Bergen, GALAR used guest musicians from a variety of musical genres to record “Til Alle Heimsens Endar”, an album with the sound and feel of both black metal and folk metal.  The title can be translated as “Until the End of All Worlds” and is a concept album based around Snorri Sturluson’s history of Norwegian kings the “Heimskringla”.   As well as their live drummer Phobos, other guests on the album include Ricardo Odriozola on first and second violins, Hans Gunnar Hagen on viola, Siri Hilmen on cello, Morten Nome on double bass, and Cecile Langlie on female vox.

GALAR’s live debut in their home town of Bergen will take place on the 29th April at the Ungdomsklubben Bizarre supported by one of the new generation of local upcoming Black Metal bands HADENS and Hardcore Thrashers QUAVILA.
