Fervent Mind PR

Norway’s Karisma Records have found another up and coming band to add to their already impressive roster,  in the shape of Experimental Rockers FERVENT MIND.

Formed in 2014 by vocalist and composer Live Sollid, FERVENT MIND draws its inspiration from bands such as PORCUPINE TREE, MEW, MASSIVE ATTACK, RADIOHEAD and SUSANNE SUNDFØR, mixing these diverse elements to create a sound that is both unique and original, and which balances on a fine line between the rough and the delicate.

Aside from Live on vocals and effects, FERVENT MIND’s lineup includes Simen Skrebergene on electric guitar, Martin Sandvik Gjerde on keyboards, Martin Skrebergene on electric bass, and Henrik Håland on drums.   Together they play experimental rock with elements from both post rock and metal, as well as from dream pop, trip hop and contemporary jazz, and they have garnered quite a reputation for their intense and energetic live performances.

With Karisma Records set to release the band’s debut full-length album in the Spring of 2019, FERVENT MIND had this to say about the collaboration:

We are super happy to announce that we have signed with the record label Karisma Records! Awesome times are ahead of us, and we can’t wait to show you our album!

With their seventh full-length album “Marrow” having been released on Dark Essence Records in September, MADDER MORTEM are set to hit the road in December with a series of European dates which will see the Norwegian Alternative Metallers headline for the first time in their long and illustrious career.

It  is a tour MADDER MORTEM are all very much looking forward to as the band explains:

We’ve always loved playing live, and the unbelievable welcome we received on the double European tour with SOEN in 2017 just stoked our fire. We were so energized and motivated by all the amazing audiences and people we met on the road, and, after experiencing the overwhelming response to our Crowdfunding campaign this summer, we decided to go for a huge leap of faith and set out under our own name. This is our first time touring as headliners, and we’re so looking forward to present to you a full Madder Mortem live set!
