NORDJEVEL was founded by frontman Doedsadmiral (SVARTELDER, DOEDSVANGR, ENEPSIGOS) and guitarist Nord (FATAL IMPACT, TVANGESTE, BYRDI), and, making use of Doedsadmiral’s considerable skills at bringing together musicians who are not only hugely experienced, but who also share the same musical ideas and ideals, the bands ranks were quickly swelled by MARDUK’s Fredrik Widigs on drums, and former RAGNAROK bassist DzeptiCunt.  With NORDJEVEL’s distinctive sound firmly set, the band recently announced the addition of another guitarist to their lineup in the shape of Morten “Noralf” Kleftaas, who had previously appeared with the band as a session live guitarist.

Having been courted by a number of labels on the strength of some rough mixes, NORDJEVEL signed with Osmose Productions and released their debut full-length album in 2016. The self-titled album was an instant success both with the critics and fans, and it became clear very quickly that demand for the band to appear live was something that needed to be addressed, and NORDJEVEL became a fully functioning live entity, as opposed to just a studio-based project.

Currently working on their next full-length album, NORDJEVEL have just released a limited edition 7″ EP entitled “Krigsmakt”. With artwork by Khaos Diktator Design, the three-track EP is limited to 500 copies, the B side of which is silk screen printed and comes with a printed inner sleeve .

On the heels of the very successful self-titled debut album, Black Metallers NORDJEVEL are set to release “Krigsmakt”, a 7″ EP, which will hit the streets on Osmose Productions on the 20th February.

With artwork by Khaos Diktator Design, the three-track EP will be limited to 500 copies, the B side of which is silk screen printed, and comes with a printed inner sleeve . Tracklisting on “Krigsmakt” is as follows:

1.Krigsmakt
2.For De Falne…
3.Into Ever Deeper Depths

“Krigsmakt” is now available to pre-order from http://www.osmoseproductions.com/item/2/94903-110402-1201-1-0/118522577/nordjevel-krigsmakt.html

NORDJEVEL was founded by frontman Doedsadmiral (SVARTELDER, DOEDSVANGR, ENEPSIGOS) and guitarist Nord (FATAL IMPACT, TVANGESTE, BYRDI), and, making use of Doedsadmiral’s considerable skills at bringing together musicians who are not only hugely experienced, but who also share the same musical ideas and ideals, the band’s ranks were quickly swelled by MARDUK’s Fredrik Widigs on drums and former RAGNAROK bassist DzeptiCunt.  With NORDJEVEL’s distinctive sound firmly set, the the band have added another guitarist to their lineup in the shape of Morten “Noralf” Kleftaas, who had previously appeared with the band as a session live guitarist.

The success of the band’s debut album meant that virtually overnight offers started to come in for live appearances, and, as a result, NORDJEVEL have handed their booking and management responsibilities to the Flaming Arts Agency. Commenting on the new collaboration the band had this to say:

“We have to admit that the success of the debut album caught us a little by surprise.  We knew we had something special, but the response from the fans and critics was overwhelming, and resulted in a lot of interest in us playing live.  We had to totally rethink everything very quickly, and came up with what we consider to be a perfect solution – and that was teaming up with Flaming Arts.  Patricia Thomas, who has been Doedsadmiral’s personal manager for longer than either of them care to remember, and who works with all his projects, will continue handling all of NORDJEVEL’s PR. She and Flaming Arts have frequently worked together over the years and know how each other functions, which is a big plus for everyone concerned as there is no learning process.  So now we have a great band and a great team, and we can look forward to the future, which will include more live appearances world-wide”.

Aside from preparing for their already confirmed live appearances, which include a UK tour in April, including an appearance at the Eradication Festival, a US tour in May, which will culminate in an appearance at the Maryland Deathfest, and an appearance at the Gothoom Open Air Festival in Slovakia in July, NORDJEVEL are currently working on their second full-length album.

Within a very few short months of announcing the band’s formation, Scandinavian Black Metallers NORDJEVEL have inked a two album deal with France’s Osmose Productions, and, whilst no exact date for the debut full-length album has been set, it is expected that the album, which will be titled “Nordjevel”,  will appear before the end of the year.

New though the band may be, its members, which include Doedsadmiral (SVARTELDER, DOEDSVANGR) on vocals, Nord (FATAL IMPACT, TVANGESTE, BYRDI) on guitars and bass, and Fredrik Widigs (MARDUK) on drums, have a wealth of experience and include some prominent musicians from the Scandinavian scene. It is a lineup whose debut track instantly caused a flurry of interest amongst Black Metal fans and media alike, and attracted a number of offers from serious labels.

Commenting on the decision to sign with Osmose, the band said: “They offered us a very good deal of course, but they also didn’t tie us up with a lot of conditions and restrictions which was a very important factor for us . The label has also worked with SLAGMAUR, which is one of our manager’s bands, so everyone already knows how everyone else works, and hopefully it will all be a seamless operation and a strong partnership”.

NORDJEVEL was founded by frontman Doedsadmiral (who was formerly known as Djevel, but who changed his name for the sake of consistency in all his projects) and guitarist Nord earlier this year, when, following a series of conversations the two found that they shared the same views on Black Metal, the Occult and the origins of Norway.  The two Norwegians were soon joined by Sweden’s Fredrik Widigs on drums, who fitted right in and contributed significantly to the writing and arranging on the album. Whilst Widigs’ commitment to his other projects pretty much preclude him from committing to appearing live with the band on anything other than the odd occasion, he is, nevertheless a full-time and committed studio member.

NORDJEVEL, which translated means “Northern Devil” are currently putting the finishing touches to the album and the artwork, which itself promises to be something very special, and are preparing for live appearance.  It has already been revealed that TROLL’s Nagash will be one of the guests on the album, and more information will be revealed in the near future.

As a taste of what to expect NORDJEVEL recently debuted the track “Denne Tidløse Krigsdom” both on SoundCloud at https://soundcloud.com/nordjevelofficial/denne-tidlose-krigsdom  and on YouTube in a video by Prometheus Art & Design, and which can be seen below or at https://youtu.be/MVhzOjhJNOI

With over two decades of experience, six full-length albums and various EP’s under their belts, CREST OF DARKNESS’ sonic brutality, expertly combined with epic musical passages,  straddles the boundary between Black and Death Metal with consummate ease.  Their  last album, “In the Presence of Death”, saw CREST OF DARKNESS  at the top of their game, and was  described by many as the very essence of Extreme Metal.  The band’s recent release, the four-track EP, titled “Evil Messiah”,  which was  released in both in Digipack CD and 12″ vinyl formats on My Kingdom Music in February of this year, included a cover version of Alice Cooper’s “Sick Things”,  the perfect choice for a band who excel at creating an evil, malignant,  atmosphere.

The Frontschwein 2015 – EUROPA Part III tour will be the first time that the new CREST OF DARKNESS lineup will tour together.  Having appeared at various shows and festivals, the lineup, which comprises founder, frontman and bassist Ingar Amlien (ROQUEFIRE, CONCEPTION, AMLIEN’s INFERNO),  Rebo on guitars,  Bernhard (Ex- PALE FOREST) on drums and Kristian Wentzel  on keyboards, are more than ready to hit the road.
