Dark Essence Records have inked a deal with the Norwegian doom/psych trio SUPERLYNX and are set to release what will be the band’s sophomore full-length album in the early part of 2019.

If you were to ask SUPERLYNX  about musical influences their answer would be something pretty much along the lines of “the sum of all the different music we all listen to and are inspired by”,  as opposed to specific bands . Doom, stoner rock, drone, psych, shoegaze, metal, old blues, jazz and classic rock all play a part in inspiring SUPERLYNX,,  whose members have a lot of music in common but also their own, individual, musical influences,  which they bring to the table.  SUPERLYNX follows no rules other than what sounds awesome and feels right.

Formed in 2013 by drummer Ole Teigen and bassist/vocalist Pia Isaksen, it had always been SUPERLYNX’s intention to remain a duo, but a meeting with guitarist Daniel Bakken, coupled with his performance during rehearsals, changed all that.  It was clear that he belonged in the band and SUPERLYNX became a fully-fledged trio.

Teigen (drums) hails from Tønsberg and has played guitar, piano/ syhth and drums in many bands since forming  MIDNATTSVREDE in 1994, including DØDHEIMSGARD, FRAMFERD, GRAND ALCHEMIST and  SKITLIV. For several years he also played in the psychedelic-elec­tronic black metal band LOVEPLANET along with Isaksen,  who  started playing the piano as a little girl, and, whilst still In her early teens, began playing guitar and writing songs. She played and performed vocals in different bands in her home town of Moss, until she found her great love for the bass with the drone/doom band NEPHILA in 2004, and later with LOVEPLANET.  Daniel Bakken from Fredrikstad, has played bass and guitar since his early teens, and has been involved in both rock, goth and metal bands – AGHAST MANOR, NEBELHEXE, GOTHMINIS­TER, MAGENTA and GATE TO KHAOS to  name but a few. He has also co-written music for the movie “Sinister”.

SUPERLYNX is definitely a band that enjoys performing live, known for an ability to deliver powerful and atmospheric shows.  They will be bringing their heavy, hypnotic, stage show to next year’s legendary Inferno Metal Festival in Oslo on the 19th April.

In the meantime you can get a taste of SUPERLYNX via a new video by Carl Eek Torgersen which shows the  band during rehearsals  performing three songs from their 2016 debut album “LVX”.  The video can be seen at https://youtu.be/x71-nZlRHLU
