Session guitarist KEVIN STORM, known for his work with bands such as VULTURE INDUSTRIES, KALMAH, EQUILIBRIUM, SHINING to name but a few, has today revealed the details of his new project FLEETBURNER and the upcoming self-titled debut album which will be released on Butler Records.

The idea of forming FLEETBURNER came about when both Storm and drummer  Tomas Myklebust (MISTUR, GALAR, KABARET MAKABER, ROADKILL) were on tour with VULTURE INDUSTRIES as session musicians, and ended the tour agreeing that they should form a band together.

With Netherlands’ Storm on Guitars, Keys, Soundscapes, Production and Story, and Norway’s  Myklebust on Drums and percussion and additional sounds, FLEETBURNER’S multi-national ranks were soon expanded with the arrival of US vocalist Ken Simerly, Finland’s  Veli-Matti Kananen (KALMAH, VINTERGATA) on Keys,  and Sweden’s Peter Iwers (ex-IN FLAMES) on bass.

According to Storm, “Fleetburner” is a concept album about “leaving everything behind, burning all ships in your wake, to sail towards…everything but this”.  The main protagonist, and namesake of both the band and the album, is The Fleetburner,  who has set sail towards no particular destination but with the goal of steering  away from pain, and pursued by an ever-growing fleet of blood-spillers who want what he has, without truly knowing what that is.

The albums storyline encompasses the entire lifespan of the protagonist who starts out as an insecure,  runaway child, and develops into the voyage of a man facing his both his inner, as well as his external, demons. The first track from the album, which the band has chosen to debut as a video is “Open Water”, which sees The Fleetburner reach open water “after having fled the land-based world, where fires rage, war is waged and man cannot escape the infinite cycle of pain and human error“.  It is a deeply emotional and personal song that deals with carrying the burden of your fellow man and the taking of what was never given”.

MISTUR fans have waited a long for the follow up to the band’s critically acclaimed 2009 debut  “Attende”, but that wait is finally over, with Dark Essence Records announcing that the new album, “In Memoriam”,  will hit the streets on the 29th April.

Having already debuted the opening track from the album (which can be heard at http://mistur.bandcamp.com/track/downfall ) MISTUR have today revealed a second track in the form of a lyric video.  The video by Marte Ø Kornerud  for the track “Distant Peaks”  includes Cover Art & Portraits by Bjarne Egge,  and Nature Photography by Marte and Liv Ø Kornerud, and is currently streaming exclusively on the following:

Lords of Metal at: http://www.lordsofmetal.nl/nl/streams/view/id/361

Recorded at the Conclave & Earshot Studios in Bergen, and in the band’s private studio, “In Memoriam” was produced by MISTUR main man Espen Bakketeig and mixed by Bjørnar E. Nilsen.  The album bears all the hallmarks of MISTUR’s special brand of Sognametal, this time with longer, more epic songs, complex  layered arrangements, clever melodies and a touch of progressive elements, whilst never losing the unique Sognametal style that lies at the very heart of the band.

MISTUR was formed in 2004 by Espen Bakketeig (VREID (live), ex- SIGTYR) on Synths, Vocals and Programming and Andre Raunehaug (EMANCER, ex-SIGTYR)  on Guitar.  The band’s music is composed of superb, layered melodies and progressive elements, which along with the rawness of Black Metal,  give the band’s signature Sognametal  sound  a distinctive touch.

Today’s lineup also includes Oliver Øien on Vocals, Stian Bakketeig (VREID, ex WINDIR, ex COR SCORPII) on Guitar,  Ole Hartvigsen (EMANCER, KAMPFAR) on Bass, and Tomas Myklebust (EMANCER (live), VREID (live), GALAR)  on Drums.

Dark Essence records have announced the signing of Norwegian Viking Metallers MISTUR, and will be releasing the band’s sophomore full-length album at a date as yet to be announced.  Hailing from the fjords and mountains of Sogndal, an area which has now taken on an almost legendary status in the world of Norwegian Extreme Metal, MISTUR’s sound mixes the melodic and the atmospheric together  with the rawness of Black Metal.  With their  Viking-related lyrics written in Norwegian, MISTUR is the perfect fit for a label that can boast of bands such as TAAKE and HELHEIM amongst its roster.

Formed as a metal project in 2004 by Espen Bakketeig and Andre Raunehaug , it quickly became apparent to the duo that there was a demand for the band to perform live, and a full lineup was put together.  MISTUR’s first release was the 2005 demo “Skoddefjellet”, which immediately attracted the  attention of both the public and the critics.  This was followed by  band’s debut full-length album  “Attende”, which appeared on the German label Einheit Produktionen in 2009.

Aside from Bakketeig (VREID (live), ex- SIGTYR) on Synths, Vocals and Programming,  and Raunehaug (EMANCER, ex-SIGTYR)  on Guitar, today’s lineup includes Oliver Øien on Vocals, Stian Bakketeig (VREID, ex WINDIR, ex COR SCORPII) on Guitar,  Ole Hartvigsen (EMANCER, KAMPFAR) on Bass, and Tomas Myklebust (EMANCER (live), VREID (live), GALAR)  on Drums.

MISTUR are set to appear at Blastfest in Bergen on the 17th February, and will join Dark Essence Records label-mates the 3rd ATTEMPT, LUCIFER’S CHILD and ORKAN at the label night at Inferno Festival in Oslo on the 23rd March.
