With its impeding release not too far away, Psychedelic Rockers SHAMAN ELEPHANT have debuted the title track from their upcoming album “Crystals” ahead of its 9th December release date.  The track can be heard streaming on Rock Hard at https://www.rockhard.de/news/newsarchiv/newsansicht/45802-shaman-elephant-feiern-crystals-songpremiere.html

“Crystals” will be the first full-length album from the Norwegians, whose previous release was the three-track EP “More”.    Whilst there is no doubt that SHAMAN ELEPHANT’s sound, replete with heavy riffs, flowing melodies and a good dose of improvisation, fits easily into the Psychedelic Rock genre, it is the additional elements of Jazz and Prog Rock that makes their music just that little bit different.

Recorded at the Solslottet and Duper Studio with producer Iver Sandøy, and with artwork by  Kåre Thomsen, tracklisting for “Crystals”  is as follows:

  1. Crystals
  2. Shaman in the Woods
  3. I.A.B.
  4. Tusko
  5. The Jazz
  6. Stoned Conceptions

SHAMAN ELEPHANT’s lineup of Eirik Sejersted Vognstølen on vocals and guitar, Jard Hole (LINT) on drums, Ole-Andreas Sæbø Jensen on  bass, and Jonas Særsten (ex-TIEBREAKER) on keyboards, are known for the energy they exude both in the studio and on stage.  They also have a pretty good idea of what people can expect from the new album, as they rather intriguingly explain “Crystals” is a psychedelic flying carpet ride taking you across a diverse musical landscape. Let the Shaman Spell fly you through waterfalls of melting melodies and fields of mastodontic riffs – open your third eye and prepare for the crystallized illusions”

Bergen-based Karisma Records have announced that they have added another talented young band to their ever growing label.  The band in question is SHAMAN ELEPHANT, who describe their musical style as Psychedelic Rock with elements from other genres such as Jazz and Prog Rock, and who aim to deliver energetic performances both in the studio and on the stage with their heavy riffs, flowing melodies and improvisations.

With a sound influenced by the ’70’s and drawing inspiration from artists as diverse as JIMI HENDRIX, The MAHAVISHNU ORCHESTRA and MOTORPSYCHO to STEELY DAN and BUSHMAN’s REVENGE, SHAMAN ELEPHANT’s lineup comprises Eirik Sejersted Vognstølen on vocals and guitar, Jard Hole (LINT) on drums, Ole-Andreas Sæbø Jensen on  bass, and Jonas Særsten (ex-TIEBREAKER) on keyboards.

SHAMAN ELEPHANT are expecting to enter the studio to record their debut full-length album in the spring of 2016.  This will be the follow up to 2015’s “More”, a three-track  EP which was released digitally through Lyd iLøo Records.
