According to the band the track itself “has so many meanings depending on who is doing the listening. But the first and obvious layer is about raising children in a world that is totally fucked up. Should you lock your doors and just protect them from what’s going on? Or stand up and speak your satanic verses?”

“Satans verser” is available for streaming  or downloading at https://believemusic.lnk.to/SatansVerser

Recorded at the Dödskult studio by Alfahanne’s Pehr Skjoldhammer and Mixed and mastered by Stamos Koliousis, “Det Nya Svarta” follows the ALFAHANNE tradition of including some high profile artists making guest appearances.  Artists which in the past have included  TAAKE’s Hoest, SHINING’s Niklas Kvarforth, HELHEIM’s V’gandr,  KVELERTAK frontman Erlend Hjelvik, Spellgoth from HORNA and TURMION KÄTILÖT, and Nattfursth from SORHIN, not just on their first two albums, but also live on stage

Guests making an appearance on “Det Nya Svarta” include KAMPFAR’s Dolk, David Lindh from YVONNE AND BRODER DANIEL,  Sanrabb from GEHENNA and Nadine Skjoldhammer.  With artwork by the Trine + Kim Design Studio, tracklisting for “Det Nya Svarta” is as follows:

2. Stigmata
3. Avgrundsgravitation (with David Lindh from YVONNE & BRODER DANIEL)

Formed in Eskilstuna in 2010,  the self-styled “Alfapokalyptic Rockers” burst onto the scene with energy, exuberance , and an impressive swagger, which, coupled with a fan-friendly attitude quickly earned them respect,  and an ever-increasing, and dedicated, following.  ALFAHANNE’s debut full-length album “Alfapokalyps” appeared on Dark Essence Records in 2014 and  was followed by “Blod Eld Alfa” in 2015.

The band’s lineup of Pehr Skjoldhammer on Vocals and Guitar, Fredrik Sööberg on Guitars, Niklas Åström on Drums and Jimmy Wiberg on Bass,  have a couple of decades of experience under their belts in bands like VINTERLAND and early MAZE OF TORMENT.  Together they have created a sound that mixes Black Metal with Classic Rock and Punk, and good old Rock n Roll that is unmistakably ALFAHANNE’s.

Frontman Skjoldhammer recently explained that with their third full-length album ALFAHANNE are continuing  to explore the dark side of mankind: Alfahanne’s lyrics are very personal and have many layers of dirt. Once you dig deeper into them you find many truths as I see them.  Alfahanne will never lean to the left or to the right or write about political issues. The only political issue that is close to our hearts is equal rights but the flipside of that same coin is that we think everyone is equally…. Equally useless.” 

“Det Nya Svarta” is now available to pre-order in CD and Vinyl formats from http://shop.indierecordings.no/artist/16189–alfahanne and in Digital format from https://itunes.apple.com/no/album/det-nya-svarta/id1202165056?

Sweden’s “Alfapokalyptic Rockers” ALFAHANNE, whose third full-length album “Det Nya Svarta” is set for release on Indie Recordings in April have today revealed another track from the album via a lyric video by Marcelo Vasco Arts .  The track, ” Avgrundsgravitation”  features guest vocals by  DAVID LINDH of SOOT & FLOOD, YVONNE and  BRODER DANIEL is premiering exclusively on Ghost Cult magazine at http://www.ghostcultmag.com/exclusive-video-premiere-alfahanne-avgrundsgravitation/

ALFAHANNE’s lineup of Pehr Skjoldhammer on Vocals and Guitar, Fredrik Sööberg on Guitars, Niklas Åström on Drums, and Jimmy Wiberg on Bass,  came together to form the band in Eskilstuna, Sweden, in 2010. With considerable experience gained in bands such  as VINTERLAND and early MAZE OF TORMENT,  and with an abundance of energy and exuberance, ALFAHANNE hit the ground running with their debut full-length album “Alfapokalyps”, which  appeared on Dark Essence Records in 2014 and  was followed by “Blod Eld Alfa” in 2015.

With their impressive, and totally likeable,  swagger, and their natural affinity for making friends with their fans, ALFAHANNE’s growing reputation as a dynamic live act, coupled with a sound that they describe as “Alfapokalyptic Rock”, which mixes Black Metal with Classic Rock and Punk, and good old Rock n Roll, has earned the band an ever-growing army of followers.

Along with winning over their fans, ALFHAHANNE have also earned the respect of established musicians, amongst whom are TAAKE’s Hoest, SHINING’s Niklas Kvarforth, HELHEIM’s V’gandr,  KVELERTAK frontman Erlend Hjelvik, Spellgoth from HORNA and TURMION KÄTILÖT, and Nattfursth from SORHIN, all of whom have guested in the studio with the band, and some of whom have also appeared live on stage with them.

In keeping with what has become a tradition of being able to work with some of the best of the best, ALFAHANNE’s new album “Det Nya Svarta” features guest vocals from KAMPFAR’s Dolk, GEHENNA’s Sanrabb and  Nadine Skjoldhammer, as well as the afore-mentioned David Lindh. Recorded at the Dödskult studio by Alfahanne’s Pehr Skjoldhammer and Mixed and mastered by Stamos Koliousis, and with artwork by the Trine + Kim Design Studio, track listing for “Det Nya Svarta” is as follows:

1. Satans verser (with Dolk from KAMPFAR)
2. Stigmata
3. Avgrundsgravitation (with David Lindh from SOOT & FLOOD ,YVONNE, BRODER DANIEL)
4. Klubb 27
5. Mitt mörker är mörkare än ditt (with Nadine Skjoldhammer)
6. Dödsmaskin (with Sanrabb from GEHENNA)
7. Även en hund har sin dag
8. Svarta får
9. Det nya svarta

Frontman Skjoldhammer recently explained that with their third full-length album ALFAHANNE are continuing  to explore the dark side of mankind: Alfahanne’s lyrics are very personal and have many layers of dirt. Once you dig deeper into them you find many truths as I see them.  Alfahanne will never lean to the left or to the right or write about political issues. The only political issue that is close to our hearts is equal rights but the flipside of that same coin is that we think everyone is equally…. Equally useless.” 

Commenting about ” Avgrundsgravitation”,  Skjoldhammer had this to say:

This one is about falling. When you’re young you have lots of hopes and dreams, but as you get older you realise that they won’t happen.  But you still can’t let them go, s o you just keep thinking that tomorrow will be better ad infinitum.  But the truth is that today’s medication and therapy only makes rock bottom seem further away. You just keep on falling, further and further into the abyss, and the abyss becomes deeper and deeper than you think”.

“Det Nya Svarta”, which will hit the streets on April 7th,  is now available to pre-order in CD and Vinyl formats from http://shop.indierecordings.no/artist/16189–alfahanne and in Digital format from https://alfahanneofsweden.bandcamp.com/album/pre-order-det-nya-svarta

ALFAHANNE have been confirmed to appear at the  In Flammen Open Air festival in Torgau, Germany in July.  More dates to be announced shortly.

ALFAHANNE, who recently inked a deal with Indie Recordings for the release of their third full-length album “Det Nya Svarta”,  set to hit the streets on the 7th April, have signed a booking deal with the international booking agency Pitch & Smith.  With offices in the UK and Sweden,  Pitch & Smith, who represent artists from across the globe throughout Europe, the UK, Asia and Australasia, is one more step forward for the dynamic foursome who aim to bring back a sense of danger to Rock n Roll with their self-styled brand of “Alfapokalyptic Rock”.

Commenting on the new collaboration ALFAHANNE had this to say: “Despite the fact that we cut our teeth in bands like VINTERLAND and MAZE OF TORMENT, which are essentially what you would class as bands on the “extreme” end of the musical spectrum, ALFAHANNE has proved to be a totally different beast.  When we started out, our  audience was, not unexpectedly,  drawn mainly from the Black Metal scene, but the more we became known, and especially the more we played live, it became obvious that ALFAHANNE’s appeal was much wider and we found that we were attracting all kinds of fans.

“And  that is absolutely what we wanted.  We didn’t want people to listen to us because we were this kind of band or that kind of band, but because we were ALFAHANNE and because we had something that struck a chord with their individual musical tastes.  That’s why we are so excited to be working with Pitch & Smith and why we think they are the natural choice for us.  Not only were the guys we will be working with born and raised in the same town as us, which means that they understand what we come from and where we want to head, but, more importantly, the nature of their agency means  we are not going to be tagged as just another “metal” band –  they are going to help us bring our music to a much wider audience.  And what band doesn’t want that?”

The band’s  lineup of Pehr Skjoldhammer on Vocals and Guitar, Fredrik Sööberg on Guitars, Niklas Åström on Drums and Jimmy Wiberg on Bass,  have a good decade of experience under their belts, and it’s an experience that enables ALFAHANNE  to produce the kinds of albums and stage performances that have garnered them  a faithful, and ever-increasing fan base, as well as a plethora of well-known artists making guest appearances on their albums or live on stage .

ALFAHANNE’s new album “Det Nya Svarta”  was recorded at the Dödskult studio by Alfahanne’s Pehr Skjoldhammer and mixed and mastered by Stamos Koliousis.   Following the  ALFAHANNE tradition of including some high profile guests on their releases  “Det Nya Svarta” includes performances from KAMPFAR’s Dolk, David Lindh from YVONNE AND BRODER DANIEL,  Sanrabb from GEHENNA and Nadine Skjoldhammer.  Tracklisting for “Det Nya Svarta” is as follows:

1. Satans verser (with Dolk from KAMPFAR)
2. Stigmata
3. Avgrundsgravitation (with David Lindh from YVONNE & BRODER DANIEL)
4. Klubb 27
5. Mitt mörker är mörkare än ditt (with Nadine Skjoldhammer)
6. Dödsmaskin (with Sanrabb from GEHENNA)
7. Även hund har sin dag
8. Svarta får
9. Det nya svarta

Tiebreaker PR 2016

With their sophomore full-length album “Death Tunes” released at the end of last year on Karisma Records, Norwegian Rockers TIEBREAKER have revealed a new video for a track from the album, one in which they wanted to give their fans a taste of what it was to be like on the road with the band.

The video, for the track “Pan American Grindstone”, was filmed and edited by Martin Bremnes,  with additional footage by Espen Krøll and Tiebreaker, and can be seen at https://youtu.be/S3PWwKfG-cA


x
As the band explains: “This film was shot in Bergen and Oslo during our Death Tunes tour of Norway last fall. We wanted to capture the spirit of being on the road as a rock & roll band in Norway; backstage shenanigans, good friends, long winter drives, reckless stage antics, and hard work. All of which is best enjoyed  holding a cold bottle of brew in one hand and throwing horns with the other”.

Formed in 2011 and hailing from Odda, Hordaland, a part of Norway known for its deep fjords and brutal landscapes, TIEBREAKER’s  lineup consists of Thomas Espeland Karlsen on vocals, Eirik Wik Haug and Olav Areklett Vikingstad on guitars, Patrick Andersson on bass and Pål Gunnar Dale on drums.  It is a lineup with an amazing chemistry both in the studio and on-stage – something that has propelled TIEBREAKER to the top ranks of Norway’s rock scene.

“Death Tunes”,  which was written over a period of three months in a small cabin in the west of Norway, was recorded at the Amper Tone Studio in Oslo, which is owned by Kjartan Kristiansen of the DUMDUM BOYS, and was produced by KVELERTAK guitarist Bjarte Lund Rolland.  The engineer/mix/master on “Death Tunes” is Nick Terry (TURBONEGRO, KVELERTAK, LIBERTINES) with assistant engineers Kim Lillestøl and Espen Andersen.  Altogether a heady mix of talent that was able to come together with TIEBREAKER to produce a high-octane album, packed with melodic riffing and spiced up with a dash of bluesy melancholy.

“Death Tunes” is now available in CD, Vinyl and Digital formats from all the usual retailers and direct from Karisma Records at  http://karismarecords.bigcartel.com/artist/tiebreaker or from the US website at https://karismarecords.aisamerch.com/band/tiebreaker  as well as from  https://tiebreaker.bandcamp.com where the album is also available digitally.

TIEBREAKER’S next live appearance will be on the 18th February at the John Dee in Oslo, Norway, when they are special guests at the launch of the new album from ORANGO.

slegest1

Norway’s SLEGEST, whose unmistakable, swaggering, heavy rock sound is filled with infectious riffs,  distinctive melodies, and vocals that owe their provenance to Black Metal,  are set to release their second full-length album “Vidsyn” on  Dark Essence Records on the 4th of November, have today revealed a video for the opening track from the album, which can be seen below and at https://youtu.be/itzR9V1JgN8


x

Founder and frontman Ese, who assures us that the video is “best enjoyed loud”,  gives us an insight into the track: “I fortida sitt lys” is the opening track of “Vidsyn” and is somewhat of a punk number, or at least the closest you’ll get to it in the cold vein of Slegest,  since groove and heaviness are the centre of it all.  We think the vibe, the visuals, and the atmosphere of both the location for the shoot and the finished video complements the music and the feel not just of this song,  but of the whole album.

 ” The concept behind the video was the brainchild of Håvard Nesbø, who also produced the video, on a budget, it has to be said,  based on pure idealism and a case of home brewed lager.  Filming took place  in a valley in Leikanger,  at the site of an old mountain barn that is long-abandoned by time.  Like the song itself, the theme of the video can be placed within the context  of the past – at the intersection of “the now”  and the ever present whiff of olden times”.

Recorded at the Conclave & Earshot and the Systrond Studios,  “Vidsyn” was jointly produced by Ese, and  Bjørnar E. Nilsen (VULTURE INDUSTRIES, BLACK HOLE GENERATOR), who also mixed the album.  Mastering is by Herbrand Larsen (ENSLAVED).  Guesting on the album is Grutle Kjellson (ENSLAVED).  The cover art is once again rooted in the art of Nikolai Astrup with design is by Tom Korsvold and drawing is by Lars Hellebø.  Tracklisting is as follows:

1. I fortida sitt lys
2. Som i eit endelikt
3. Du
4. komfortabelt nommen midtvekes
5. Wolf
6. The Reanimator
7. Inn i uvissao
8. Tenn den gamle varde

slegest-artpr

SLEGEST lineup of Ese on Vocals and Rhythm Guitars, Sør (BÄÄÄV, VONBRÅTEN) on Lead Guitars, Hövard (BOMBEKLÜCHTER) on Bass and Fjøsne on Drums, will celebrate the release of “Vidsyn” with show at Krøsset in Oslo on the 12th November, where they will be joined by Sweden’s ALFAHANNE.  With the reputation that both bands have as high-energy and totally captivating performers, the event  promises to be pretty special.

The band will then hit the road in December of this year , jointing SHINING’s 20th Anniversary tour, which also features Dark Essence label mates TAAKE, with whom the band has previously toured.  The prospect of sharing a stage with Niklas Kvarforth and Hoest, widely acknowledged to be two of the most accomplished and exciting front men in extreme metal, would seem daunting to most bands, but judging from the reviews SLEGEST has received for its live performances, and from the number of fans the has  picked up following those performances,  this is a band that is more than able to hold its own against the two titans.

Routing for the tour with SHINING and TAAKE as follows:
02 Dec: NUKE, Berlin, DE
03 Dec: Into Darkness Festival, Neushoom, Leeuwarden, NL
04 Dec: Underworld, London, UK
05 Dec: Petit Bain, Paris, FR

Tiebreaker PR 2016

With their new album “Death Tunes” set to be released on Karisma Records this Autumn, Norwegian Rockers TIEBREAKER have offered fans a glimpse into what will be the band’s second full-length album with the track “Killer” which is streaming exclusively on Vive Le Rock at http://vivelerock.net/tiebreaker-stream-exclusive-track/  and Metal Hammer Norway at http://www.metalhammer.no/?p=6391

Combining the sound of Rock & Roll brought up to date, plus the raw energy of early Garage Rock, TIEBREAKER quickly found itself amongst the top Norwegian Rock Bands, thanks to the chemistry of a lineup comprised of Thomas Espeland Karlsen on vocals, Eirik Wik Haug and Olav Areklett Vikingstad on guitars, Patrick Andersson on bass and Pål Gunnar Dale on drums.  Furthermore, it’s  a chemistry that works equally well in either a studio setting or a live environment.

“Death Tunes” was written over a period of three months in a small cabin in the west of Norway, and was produced by KVELERTAK guitarist Bjarte Lund Rolland.  Recording took place at the Amper Tone Studio in Oslo, owned by Kjartan Kristiansen of the DUMDUM BOYS, whilst the engineering/mixing/mastering is by Nick Terry (TURBONEGRO, KVELERTAK, LIBERTINES) with assistant engineers Kim Lillestøl and Espen Andersen.   The end result is a high-octane album packed with melodic riffing and spiced up with a dash of bluesy melancholy.

The ten-track album, which includes the video single “Anywhere But Here”,  will be released in CD and digital formats on the 21st  October, whilst the vinyl edition will be available from the 19th November .  Artwork for “Death Tunes” is by Robin Gnista.  Tracklisting is as follows:

  1. Hell
  2. Pan American Grindstone
  3. Cannonball
  4. Commando
  5. Anywhere But Here
  6. The Deep
  7. Building Up to Die
  8. Killer
  9. Float Away
  10. Heavy Lifting
