3rd Attempt PR1

Whilst it has become fairly standard these for bands to release promo videos that feature excerpts of tracks from their upcoming releases, Norwegian Black Metallers the 3RD ATTEMPT have approached the whole thing in a slightly different way.  Not only does the video give fans  an insight into the sound of the album, but it also features a voice-over by  frontman and lyricist Ødemark himself, describing to fans the concept behind each track.

The video, produced by Ødemark,  and featuring snippets of the first four tracks from “Egocidal Path”,  will be the first of two, with the second one, featuring the remainder of the tracks, appearing before the December 1st  release of the album on Dark Essence Records.  It can be seen below and at https://youtu.be/MnPPn74G1iU

“Egocidal Path” will be the second full length album from the band formed by former CARPATHIAN FOREST guitarists Tchort (GREEN CARNATION) and BloodPervertor (OPUS FORGOTTEN) and  whose lineup also includes Ødemark on vocals and Tybalt (FORTID, DEN SAAKALDTE) on drums.  It will, as Tchort recently explained, be an album that more clearly defines the band’s sound:

“With “Egocidal Path” we take a huge leap towards the true sound and identity of the 3RD ATTEMPT. While our debut album “Born in Thorns” represented the CARPATHIAN FOREST era of our song writing, “Egocidal Path” is a newly written album that is more aggressive, tighter and in-your-face.  It also showcases the fantastic drumming skills of Tybalt (FORTID, DEN SAAKALDTE) and the vocal range and creativity of Ødemark, allowing the listener to slip into his personal universe of wrath, ego, human spite and the glory of suicide”.

With artwork by the Brazilian artist Rafael Tavares, tracklisting for “Egocidal Path” is as follows:

  1. Blood, Dope and Black N Roll
  2. Into the Light
  3. Reflections about Knives
  4. Egocide
  5. I’ll do it now
  6. The Disciples
  7. Black Metal Alchemist
  8. The Oath

3rd Attempt PR2

With the release of their second full-length album, “Egocidal Path” on Dark Essence Records,  a month away, the 3RD ATTEMPT have given fans a first taste of what to expect by releasing a video of a track from the album.  The video, by Lukas Jaszak , for the track “I’ll Do It Now” can be seen at https://youtu.be/Ca0WwsIq0cs


A
Commenting on the track itself, guitarist/bassist Tchort had this to say:

“Musically this song differs from anything we did on the first album, or, indeed, on “Egocidal Path” itself for that matter.  It’s melodic but old school, and contains some breaks that are perhaps a bit untraditional as regards Black Metal as I know it.  And knowing that the lyrics are actually very deep emotions and personal experience made flesh, so to speak, the impact this has on the melody and the depth of feeling expressed in the vocals is that much stronger”.

It is the strength of the emotions expressed in the lyrics that surprised video maker Jaszak  and affected the way in which he  approached the making of the video, as he explains:

“I like to work at night, but that proved impossible with this particular song with its seemingly simple, self-explanatory lyrics.  But they grow on you without you realizing and before you know it, you’re thinking about ending it all.  I know it sounds naive, but  try listening to this on repeat, at night, with the words flashing on the screen – on and on.

“I tried to make this video as simple as the message itself, whilst portraying the feelings of chaos and desperation that consume the  main character.  We definitely did not want to get too literal with the subject here, and we chose to ignore the blood and razors and all the usual worn out clichés, and focus instead on emotional chaos.  Although suicide may seem like an easy way out for most, I feel instead that it is a horrifying vortex of tangled emotions, and  both the song and the video show this”.

Given the intensity that both Tchort and Jaszak picked up on in both Ødemark’s lyrics and his performance, the vocalist reveals the anguish behind the song:

“When I first heard the music for “I’ll Do It Now” played in the studio, I felt that the atmosphere surrounding it was the perfect environment in which to talk about how, at the age of 12, I made a serious attempt at killing myself for the second time.   I could have just described the scene and been obvious about it, but the music awakened something in me and I decided  instead to write about what went on in my head, without resorting to any poetic artifice, artistic pretensions or judgment whatsoever.  I therefore chose to regress to that particular moment in my life, something which, incidentally, was much harder to do than I had expected, and write the lyrics using the thoughts exactly as they went through my mind.

” I had to open myself up to being  as vulnerable as possible in order to once again become that child who had decided to take his own life, and to write down his thoughts with total honesty.  Some of it might sound clichéd, or even naive and childish, but I needed to keep the truth undistorted in order to create the purest, most honest piece of art possible, and align that honesty with my vision of what Black Metal should be”

Formed by former CARPATHIAN FOREST guitarists Tchort (GREEN CARNATION) and BloodPervertor (OPUS FORGOTTEN), the duo recruited Ødemark on vocals and Tybalt (FORTID, DEN SAAKALDTE) on drums, and released the band’s debut album “Born in Thorns” on Dark Essence Records in 2015.  As Tchort recently explained, that album still had some of the remnants of the CARPATHIAN FOREST era, whilst “Egocidal Path”, on the other hand,  was written with a fresh approach,  resulting in an in-your-face album that is much tighter and much more aggressive, with Ødemark’s lyrics and vocal range dragging the listener kicking and screaming into his own skewed universe.

With artwork by the Brazilian artist Rafael Tavares, tracklisting for “Egocidal Path” is as follows:

  1. Blood, Dope and Black N Roll
  2. Into the Light
  3. Reflections about Knives
  4. Egocide
  5. I’ll do it now
  6. The Disciples
  7. Black Metal Alchemist
  8. The Oath

3rd Attempt PR1

Leaving a long-established, and very successful, band in order to scratch the creative itch and get out of a rut is always a gamble, but it’s a gamble that veteran musicians and former CARPATHIAN FOREST guitarists Tchort (GREEN CARNATION) and BloodPervertor (OPUS FORGOTTEN) had no qualms in taking, and, with the second album from the 3RD ATTEMPT, they have proved that they were right to do so.

Titled “Egocidal Path”, and set for release on Dark Essence Records on the 1st December, the 3RD ATTEMPT’s sophomore offering not only builds on the foundation laid by its predecessor, it also leaves it far behind.  There’s still Thrash, there’s still Black’n’Roll, and there’s no doubting the presence of that Black Metal vibe.  But there’s a whole lot more besides, because “Egocidal Path” exudes the confidence that comes from a band whose members have gelled and know that they have succeeded in creating something loud, energetic and brash, intermingled with subtle touches that surprise. It has a variety that keeps it fresh and interesting, and showcases  the undoubted skills and experience of each and every one of its members.

Talking about the album, Tchort had this to say:

“With “Egocidal Path” we take a huge leap towards the true sound and identity of the 3RD ATTEMPT. While our debut album “Born in Thorns” represented the CARPATHIAN FOREST era of our song writing, “Egocidal Path” is a newly written album that is more aggressive, tighter and in-your-face.  It also showcases the fantastic drumming skills of Tybalt (FORTID, DEN SAAKALDTE) and the vocal range and creativity of Ødemark, allowing the listener to slip into his personal universe of wrath, ego, human spite and the glory of self-destruction.

“Let us accompany you on the path to Hell!”

With artwork by the Brazilian artist Rafael Tavares, “Egocidal Path” will be available in CD, Digital and LP formats.  Tracklisting as follows:

  1. Blood, Dope and Black N Roll
  2. Into the Light
  3. Reflections about Knives
  4. Egocide
  5. I’ll do it now
  6. The Diciples
  7. Black Metal Alchemist
  8. The Oath

With their debut album “Born in Thorns” having hit the streets on Dark Essence Records in the Autumn of 2015,  Norwegian Black Metallers THE 3rd ATTEMPT entered the Strand Studio in Oslo on the 26th May to begin work on their sophomore full-length album, with a view to it being released towards the end of the year.

3rd Attempt Studio3

Tybalt

THE 3rd ATTEMPT was formed by former CARPATHIAN FOREST guitarists Tchort (GREEN CARNATION, ex-CARPATHIAN FOREST, ex EMPEROR, ex BLOOD RED THRONE) and BloodPervertor (APOSTASY, ex-CARPATHIAN FOREST, ex NEONGOD), who, feeling they had become stale in their roles, quit the iconic band and decided to form a project that would once again ignite their enthusiasm and creativity.  Vocalist Ødemark (ex-MIDNATTSVREDE, ex-NECROCAVE) joined the lineup  following online auditions that saw him beat a plethora of both experienced and new vocalists from all over the world for the role.  Drummer Tybalt (FORTID, DEN SAAKALDTE) whose performance as a live session drummer for THE 3rd ATTEMPT impressed everyone, was quickly added to the lineup on a permanent basis.

3rd Attempt Studio4

BloodPervertor, Tybalt, Tchort

Ten songs for the new album have been completed, and the drum tracks have already been recorded by Tybalt, who had this to say about what fans could expect from the new material: ” There’s a lot more going on than on the last album, and it’s much faster.  We are definitely beginning to forge something that is truly our own.  It’s dark, it’s filthy and it’s mofo rock n roll”.

3rd Attempt Studio2

Tybalt

Ødemark, who writes the lyrics for the band gave, an insight into the subject matter: “The new album is about self destruction from an introspective point of view (inside-out), and is not so much about suicide as it is about the need to seek pain, both mental and emotional, in order to develop as a person.   Song by song, a new destructive facet of life is seen, systematically deconstructing each aspect of the human ego.  It’s about evolving through real suffering, and accepting the fact that you are insignificant.  Basically it illustrates how little I care about you.  So, in a nutshell, it’s just about the truth”

When, in late 2014, guitarists Tchort and BloodPervertor announced that they were leaving Black Metal titans CARPATHIAN FOREST to form their own band 3rd ATTEMPT, there were some who questioned the wisdom of leaving the safety of such an iconic band in order to start something new.  But, less than a year later,  on the 25th September,  Dark Essence Records is set to release the band’s debut full-length album “Born in Thorns”, which will show just how right the two renowned guitarists were in deciding to leave an environment they felt had become stale and stifling, in order to feel the rush of creativity and enthusiasm once again.

As a taste of what to expect from “Born in Thorns” the track “Art of Domination” has been debuted today and can be heard below and at https://soundcloud.com/dark-essence-records/3rd-attempt-art-of-domination

Barely drawing breath after their announcement,  Tchort (GREEN CARNATION, ex-CARPATHIAN FOREST, ex EMPEROR, ex BLOOD RED THRONE) and BloodPervertor ( ex-CARPATHIAN FOREST) chose Ødemark (ex-MIDNATTSVREDE) as their vocalist, following online auditions that elicited responses from both experienced and new vocalists from all over the world.  The lineup was then completed with the addition of drummer Tybalt (FORTID, DEN SAAKALDTE) whose performance as a session drummer for the 3rd ATTEMPT at this year’s Blastfest convinced the others that he was the man for the job.

With producer Endre Kirkesola, known for his work with CARPATHIAN FOREST,  BLOOD RED THRONE, GREEN CARNATION, URGEHAL, TSJUDER,  at the helm,  3rd ATTEMPT entered the Studio Sanden in Kristiansand to record “Born in Thorns”.  Mixing and mastering was done by Marius Strand at the Strand Studio.  This is an album that showcases the well-known writing skills of the two founders,  as well as contributions from the new members, and turns the old-school Black Metal vibe up several notches by introducing different elements, including rock n roll/black n roll, to produce a unique take on the Classic Black Metal sound, giving it a fresh feeling and a distinctive groove.

Artwork for “Born in Thorns” is by Jon Tønnessen and tracklisting on the ten-track album is as follows:

1. Torment Nation
2. Dark Vision
3. Art of Domination
4. We Defy
5. Born in Thorns
6. Beast Within
7. Sons of the Winter
8. Nekrogrammaton
9. Firestorm
10. Anti-Self

3rd ATTMEPT will join Dark Essence Records label-mates TAAKE on a European Tour later this year, details to be announced.  Confirmed upcoming shows as follows:

12 Sep:   Southern Discomfort Festival, Kristiansand, Norway
26 Nov:  The Garage, Bergen, Norway (supporting SHINING)
27 Nov:  Pokalen, Oslo, Norway (supporting SHINING)
