Wobbler PR2

With just over a month to go until the release of “From Silence to Somewhere”,  the fourth full-length album from Norway’s leading Symphonic Prog band WOBBLER,  Karisma Records have released a promo video which not only gives fans a taste of the music they can expect to hear, but also an insight into the band itself.

It is a fascinating glimpse into the workings of a group of people  who, as they have matured and grown together as individuals and as musicians,  have quite considerably changed the way they write and make their music.   And most noticeably it is an example of a close and enduring friendship amongst the members of WOBBLER that gives the individual  musicians the confidence to change, and exchange, ideas in a way that often takes an original idea in a completely unexpected direction, without egos getting in the way, and having a lot of fun while they do it.

The video can be seen below and at https://youtu.be/sqrqPG7MZwk


A
“From Silence to Somewhere”, which is set for release on the 20th October,  is comprised of four epic tracks that explore the idea of metamorphosis and alchemy.  WOBBLER’s trademark sound, which makes use of copious amounts of Mellotron, Moog, Hammond, Chamberlin and other classical analogue keyboards, and of course the renowned Rickenbacker Bass,  is very much in evidence.

It is an album with a darker, more introspective edge than WOBBLER’s  previous releases, but at the same time “From Silence to Somewhere” feels  like a natural progression.  Flamenco and Italian Renaissance music can be heard weaving their way subtly through the melancholy harmonies that are combined with powerful crescendos and high-energy, spinet-driven passages, whilst the guitar riffs range from the poignant to the edgy.

With artwork by Thomas Kaldhol (Samuel Jackson 5, Panzerpappa, Lukas Kasha etc) , and a running time of 47 minutes, tracklisting on “From Silence to Somewhere” is as follows:

1. From Silence to Somewhere
2. Rendered in Shades of Green
3. Fermented Hours
4. Foxlight

Formed in Hønefoss in 1999, WOBBLER’s current lineup features current and former members of TUSMØRKE, WHITE WILLOW, THE CHRONICLES OF FATHER ROBIN and JAGA JAZZIST.  With Lars Fredrik Frøislie on keyboards and backing vocals, Kristian Karl Hultgren on  bass, bass clarinet and bass pedals, Martin Nordrum Kneppen on drums, percussion and recorder,  Andreas Wettergreen Strømman Prestmo on vocals, guitar, glockenspiel and percussion, and Geir Marius Bergom Halleland on lead guitar and backing vocals,  the band can avail itself of a considerable  array of instruments that  have a huge, and very interesting impact,  on the overall sound.

WOBBLER will be joining fellow Karisma Records band-mates TUSMØRKE and JORDSJØ at the Proggens Grøde,  which will be held at the  Kulturkirken Jakob in Oslo on the 29th September.

Devar PR

After a lengthy hiatus Norwegian  Metallers  DEVAR are back with “Mausoleum”, a brand new full-length album that showcases to perfection the band’s unconventional  approach to writing and performing, drawing their influence from genres as far apart as Extreme, Black and Avantgarde Metal with a smattering of 70’s Prog Rock.    It’s an eccentric mix, but a highly successful one according to the press,  who variously hailed DEVAR’s  2009 debut album “Alternate Endings” as being “daring”, “original” and packed with “well-crafted songs”.

Originally formed as a solo project by Devar in 2002, it quickly became apparent to him that a full band was needed to fulfil his vision, eventually resulting in today’s lineup, formed of Devar on vocals, Obdsaija on  Drums and Percussion, Aadland on  Guitars and Ottoegil on Bass and  Keys

DEVAR’s return to the studio,  and the resulting “Mausoleum”,  shows a much more mature and reflective band, whose songs are more focused and perhaps have a more progressive edge.  It is an album that takes as its concept the feeling of someone standing on the edge of the end, whilst images of their lifetime flashes through their fractured and declining mind.

“Mausoleum” was recorded by Bjørnar E. Nilsen (VULTURE INDUSTRIES, TAAKE, HELHEIM) at the Conclave & Earshot  Studios,  by Devar at the Alternate End Studios, and by Ottoegil at Internasjonalt Farvann.  It and was mixed and mastered by Herbrand Larsen (ENSLAVED) also at the Conclave & Earshot Studios.

With artwork by Tom Korsvold and photography by Ronny A. Sangolt, “Mausoleum” is set for release on the 29th September on Gymnocal Industries in Digipak CD, Gatefold DLP and Digital formats.  Tracklisting for “Mausoleum is as follows:

1. Mausoleum
2. House of Bones
3. Dead End Moon
4. Shadow Straggler
5. Cold black Rain
6. Narcissa Oriane
7. Ashes
8. Dead Wounds

“Mausoleum” is now available to pre-order from www.gymnocal.com

A single for the track “House of Bones” from the upcoming album “Mausoleum” was recently released digitally and can be heard below and at http://devar.bandcamp.com/track/house-of-bones

Himmelgemme PR1

Bergen may be known as being at the epicentre of Norwegian Black Metal, but with the help of Karisma Records, it is also fast developing a reputation for  giving birth to some of the most interesting new bands who inhabit the more Progressive side of the music spectrum.

One such band is HIMMELLEGEME,  whose Psychedelic brand of Rock, replete with heavy-hitting riffs, chilling melodies and melancholic lyrics, is influenced by both Blues and Atmospheric Prog Rock, and whose debut full-length album, “Myth of Earth”,  is set for release on Karisma Records on the 6th October.

HIMMELLEGEME’s lineup of Aleksander Vormestrand on guitars and vocals, Hein Alexander Olson on lead guitar, Lauritz Isaksen on keyboards, Erik Alfredsen on bass, and Thord Nordli on drums, spent the past year exploring new sounds and putting the finishing touches on their new material, the result of which is an album that depicts past events not only in the lives of the band members themselves, but also in the lives of others.

Recorded during the fall and winter of 2016 at the Broen Studios in Bergen, and produced by Anders Bjelland (ELECTRIC EYE / HYPERTEXT),  “Myth of Earth” is an album whose sound is otherworldly and timeless.  With artwork by Mina Nornes Westli,  tracklisting for “Myth of Earth is as follows:

1. Natteravn
2. Hjertedød
3. Myth of Earth
4. Breath in the air like fire
5. Kyss mine blodige hender
6. Fish
7. Fallvind

Himmelgemme AlbumArt

HIMMELLEGEME are set to play four dates in Norway, one at the Fjellparkfestivalen in July, and three with VULTURE INDUSTRIES in the Autumn to celebrate the release of  “Myth of Earth.

21 Jul: Fjellparkfestivalen, Flekkefjord
29 Sep: Checkpoint Charlie, Stavanger
30 Sep:  Blå, Oslo
21 Oct:  Flytten, Haugesund

Norwegian Avant-garde metallers VULTURE INDUSTRIES have debuted the first twisted track taken from their forthcoming album, ‘Stranger Times’, which has been scheduled for release on the 22nd September on Season of Mist

The song “As the World Burns” is presented in the form of a lyric video, which was created by renowned Romanian artist Costin Chioreanu and  is currently being streamed exclusively by the official partners listed below.

Metal Obsession (AU)
Spark (CZ)
Rock Hard (DE)
Friedhof Magazine (ES)
Radio Metal (FR)
Inferno (FI)
Rocking (GR)
Lángoló Gitárok (HU)
Hardkjarni (IS)
Metal Italia (IT)
Lords of Metal (NL)
Metal Hammer (NO)
Kvlt (PL)
Loud (PT)
Crank It Up (SE)
Antichrist Magazine (UA)
Metal Hammer (UK)

‘Stranger Times’, which will be VULTURE INDUSTRIES’  fourth full-length album, continues and expands the band’s quest to push the limitations of genre and sound. Their nine new tracks are as easily as masterfully spanning a wide range from dark rock to progressive-experimental metal, while keeping their wild roaming within the boundaries of the band’s unique and bizarre sonic universe. Yet VULTURE INDUSTRIES manage to harness their bold mix into recognisable structures and meaningful songs throughout that do not shy away from catchiness and, quite importantly, do not fall into the trap of being weird just for the sake of experimentation.

With a lineup that comprises Bjørnar E. Nilsen on: vocals, percussion & keyboard, Øyvind Madsen on guitars,  Eivind Huse on guitars and vocals, Kyrre Teigen on bass and vocals and Tor Helge Gjengedal on drums, VULTURE INDUSTRIES had this to say about the newly debuted track:

“This song represents  the rockier side of our new album and is one of my personal favourites. ‘As the World Burns’ deals with the interdependence of extreme world views that need each other to justify their existence – a theme that is quite relevant in our strange and hazy present. Once more we have teamed up with our friend and sixth band member, the brilliant Mr. Costin Chioreanu for a video. Of course, Costin also created the album artwork. These are the first fruits of our continued co-operation and I sincerely promise that there are a lot of more strange harvests to come your way. Take a bite!”

As regards the album itself, frontman Bjørnar E. Nilsen commented:

“Stranger Times” continues  along the path that we started to explore on ‘The Tower’, I proudly believe ‘Stranger Times’ to be standing out as a defining work for us. It bridges the gap between styles that we have touched upon in the past, while at the same  time expands our scope and includes a more solid dose of rock in the mix. To me, it represents our most ‘solid’ album to date and is clearly the best produced one. I am curious to see how our fans will react, but being the kind and intelligent persons that they are, we actually expect a lot of love… and maybe a bit of trash just to remind us that we are mere mortals.”

With artwork by Costin Chioreanu, “Stranger Times” was recorded and mixed by  was Bjørnar E. Nilsen & Edmond Karban at the Conclave & Earshot Studios, Bergen, Norway and mastered by Chris Sansom at  Propeller Mastering, Oslo, Norway.  Guests on the album include Herbrand Larsen  on keyboards (on “Strangers”) and Hans Marius Andersen on trumpet (on “Strangers” and “The Beacon”)

1. Tales of Woe (4:37)
2. As the World Burns (5:22)
3. Strangers (7:10)
4. The Beacon (5:35)
5. Something Vile (4:17)
6. My Body, My Blood (2:27)
7. Gentle Touch of a Killer (5:03)
8. Screaming Reflections (5:32)
9. Midnight Draws Near (5:20)

VULTURE INDUSTRIES are also set to embark on a series of live appearances and a European tour, which, according to the band  “Will  be our most ambitious tour to date and we are of course looking enthusiastically forward to visit all of our favourite places and people again. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to present material from our new album ‘Stranger Times’ in concert format. We will of course supplement this with favourites from our catalogue.

Atrox PR2

Dark Essence Records have today announced details of the upcoming album from one of their latest signings, ATROX.  Set for release on the 8th September, and titled “Monocle”, this will be the sixth full-length studio album from the veteran Norwegians.

With “Monocle”, the first album from the band since 2008’s “Binocular”, ATROX are back stronger than ever, having fine tuned their sound so that what was once an atmospheric mix of Death and Doom Metal has become much more progressive, experimental and industrial.  It is an album that shows a darker side to the band, with more epic and atmospheric elements than before.  Consolidating the unique ATROX sound within the album are catchy and upbeat sections.

Artwork for “Monocle” is by Rune Folgerø and Erik Paulsen.  Tracklisting is as follows:

1. Mass
2. Vacuum
3. Heat
4. Finger
5. Suicide Days
6. For We Are Many
7. Movie
8. Target

Atrox AlbumPR

Today’s ATROX lineup comprises Rune Folgerø on Vocals,  viNd on Guitars, Rune Sørgård on Guitars & Technology, Tor Arne Helgesen on Drums and Erik Paulsen on Bass, and they recently had some very interesting things to say about “Monocle”:

“Monocle” is our darkest album so far. During the process of creating and recording it we explored, and were exposed to, our darker selves, and what we encountered during this process almost killed us.  It left us in a dystopian vacuum and all worn out, but with one hell of a piece of music to present to the world.

“Musically speaking “Monocle” contains poisons that’ll blind you, and poisons that’ll open your eyes.

“As William Gibson says in his novel  “Neuromancer“: “The future is already here. It’s just unevenly distributed.”
Atrox PR1

More information about ATROX can be found on the band’s website at http://www.atrox.no/  or on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/atrox.no

BLACK HOLE GENERTOR, the project of VULTURE INDUSTRIES frontman  Bjornar E. Nilsen, has today debuted a video for the track “Moloch” from the band’s new album “A Requiem for Terra” which was released on Dark Essence Records last month.  It  can be seen at:

The video is by the renowned Romanian artist and designer Costin Chioreanu, with whom Nilsen has a long-standing working relationship not only in terms of album artwork, but also videos and live performance.

Commenting on the video Nilsen said: “I find the video to be a disturbing piece.  Costin Chioreanu has dived into the abyss of our collective consciousness and has emerged with images of our destruction.  The joint annihilation of all life.  Future generations sacrificed upon the altar of Moloch.  A massacre of innocents from beyond the womb in the hope that we will be blessed with earthly pleasures in return”.

Of all the tracks on “A Requiem for Terra”, “Moloch” happens to be Nilsen’s  favourite, and one which he recently described as acting as the centerpiece for the entire album.  It also features a guest appearance from TAAKE and ORKAN guitarist Gjermund Fredheim.

black-hole-generator-pr2

“A Requiem for Terra” is the long-awaited debut full-length  album from BLACK HOLE GENERATOR.  It follows on from the band’s first ever release, the “Black Karma” MCD, and was ten long years in the making due to Nilsens commitments not only to VULTURE INDUSTRIES, but also to his career  as one of Norway’s most successful producers, working with bands such as TAAKE and HELHEIM, as well as being one of the people behind the Dark Essence Records and Karisma Records labels.

It is an album that has delighted many guitar fans with guitarist Arve Isdal (ENSLAVED, AUDREY HORNE) being joined on the album by the previously-mentioned Gjermund Fredheim, who guests on three of the tracks, and  Dag Terje Andersen, who provides additional guitars.   Artwork for  “A Requiem for Terra” is also by Costin Chioreanu,  tracklisting is as follows:

  1. A Requiem for Terra
  2. Titan
  3. Moloch
  4. Beneath a Chemical Sky
  5. Emerging Pantheon
  6. Earth Eater
  7. Spiritual Blight
