When a band wins the title of most promising band in southern Norway and goes on to play a concert with the Kristiansand Symphony Orchestra, you know that it’s a band worth keeping an eye on. And Progressive Metallers RENDEZVOUS POINT, have not only fulfilled their promise, but have exceeded it as their debut full-length album “Solar Storm” will demonstrate.

Mixed by Christer  André Cederberg and Jens Bogren, and mixed and mastered by Tony Lindgren,  all at Fascination Street Studios, and with album art by Costin Chioreanu, the seven-track album contains the logic-defying rhythms, fantastic melodies and epic arrangements that make RENDEZVOUS POINT not only a terrific studio band, but also an exceptional live band.

Track listing for “Solar Storm”, which is set for release on Karisma Records on the 2nd October, is as follows:

1. Through The Solar Storm
2. Wasteland
3. Para
4. The Hunger
5. Mirrors
6. The Conclusion pt.1
7. The Conclusion pt.2

With musicians who first met when they were studying music at the University of Agder, and who have gone on to play in some of the top bands in Norway, RENDEZVOUS POINT’s lineup includes Geirmund Hansen on vocals, Baard Kolstad on drums (LEPROUS, BORKNAGAR, ICS VORTEX), Petter Hallaråker on guitar (ICS VORTEX, SOLEFALD), Nicolai Tangen Svennæs on keyboards (EMILIE NICOLAS) and Gunn-Hilde Erstad on bass.  Many will, in fact, recognise Hansen from his appearance on the Norwegian edition of The Voice.
