Dark Essence Records have inked a deal with Norwegian Occult Hard Rockers ACÂRASH, and will release their debut full-length album on a date as yet to be announced.

Formed in Oslo in the fall of 2016, ACÂRASH’s lineup is comprised of Sølve Sæther on drums, Lukas Paulsen on guitars and Anlov P. Mathiesen on bass and vocals. Founded on the pillars of the 80s and 90s avant-garde rockers THE VOID, ACÂRASH draws its inspiration from a variety of sources, including bands such as LONELY KAMEL, ZECTION8, FAUSTUS and DEEP REST.

Blending hard rock, doom and black metal,  ACÂRASH is a band that embraces tradition yet manages to forge a sound that it uniquely theirs. It is a sound where esoteric poetry and ritualistic contemplation are central to the music, and mirror the nuances in both sound and musical contrasts.

With their debut album, Acârash reinvents and preserves, delivering a record that explores and develops the boundaries of rock and metal, and naturally alternates between raw catchiness, dark introspection, and progressive playfulness.

Whilst full details of the album, which will be titled “In Chaos Becrowned”, will be announced shortly, it can, however, be revealed that it has been recorded, mixed and mastered by Ruben Willem at the Caliban Studios in Oslo, to produce a sound that fits the sharp delivery and the crispness of the music to perfection.

The 3rd June has been set as the release date for “Memento Collider”, the fourth full-length album from Experimental Hard Rockers VIRUS.   The album, with cover art by the Trine + Kim Design Studio (http://www.trineogkim.no/ ), will appear on Karisma Records, who recently signed the band.

Whilst no further details about “Memento Collider” are currently available, the self-styled  wayward Norwegian trio will give fans a taste of what is to come at Blastfest in Bergen on the 18th February, where they will showcase several tracks from the album.

VIRUS rose from the ashes of 90’s avant-garde black metal project VED BUENS ENDE in 2000 when  guitarist and vocalist Carl “Czral” Michael Eide had the idea of creating a new kind of experimental metal / rock.  Together with bassist Petter “Plenum” Berntsen and drummer Einar “Einz” Sjursø they released their first, and only,  demo that same year.  Three full-length studio albums followed, together with tours in Europe and the USA and a plethora of festival appearances.
