Dark Essence Records have announced that the 16th April has been set for the release of “Electric Temple”, the third full-length album from SUPERLYNX, the Norwegian trio known for its distinctive, genre-defying sound that combines  doom, psychedelic and meditative atmospheres with heaviness and droning rock.

As a taste of things to come, the label has today released both a single, and a video, of the title track. The single is available to download or stream on a number of services at:

Whilst the video, by Joan Pope / Temple ov Saturn, can be seen below and at  https://youtu.be/zphXNF_dUyU

For SUPERLYNX’s lineup of Pia Isaksen on  Bass and Vocals,  Daniel Bakken on  Guitars and Ole Teigen on Drums, piano, keys and vocals, “Electric Temple” is both a continuation on from  their previous album “New Moon” and a further development of moods not previously explored by the band.  Poignantly, “Electric Temple” also bears a deeply felt  mark left by the tragic death of a close family member. 

According to the band, the title of the album is a reference to Jimi Hendrix´ way of looking at music. As they explain:

Our music and lyrics are as always very personal to us and refer to what we go through.  Life, music, nature and inspiration is a general focus.  We always want to push ourselves and explore deeper, wider and further and we feel this album shows our effort in that respect.

As Hendrix said “We call our music ‘electric church music’. Because it’s like a religion to us.” And that is much like how we feel about ours. In music we find so much of what people seek in temples, religions or other spiritual forms – strength to endure trials, peace of mind, ecstasy, safety, hope, community, joy, transcendence etc. In the process of writing our third album this truth only become clearer to us. Music is our temple.

As to the actual technical aspects of the album SUPERLYNX  went to describe how fortunate they were that producer Marc Urselli got in touch with the band wanting to work on the album with them:

He happens to be a multiple Grammy Award win­ning producer who has done sound for Nick Cave, Mike Patton, Lou Reed, Keith Rich­ards, The Black Crowes and countless more.  He also has a project with Lee Ranaldo & Jim Jarmusch, has played in a trio with Stephen O´Malley and has a project with people like Steve von Till, Matt Pike, Lori S, Dave Chandler and more.

But these credits were not what was important to us though.  It was rather the fact that his sound was so in line with what we ourselves hoped to get out of this. Marc ended up mixing the album and we are really happy about how he has enhanced our sound.

The same goes for Fridtjof Lindeman of Strype Audio, who mastered “Electric Temple” as he did for our previous two albums.  He is always a pleasure to work with and does excellent work every time.  

Recorded and produced by Ole Teigen in his studio Crowtown Recordings, and with album artwork by Pia Isaksen and band photo by Carl Eek, track listing for “Electric Temple” is as follows:


1. Rising Flame
2. Electric Temple
3. Apocalypse
4. Moonbather
5. Sonic Sacrament
6. Returning Light
7. Laws of Nature
8. Then you Move
9. Siren Sing
10. May



“Electric Temple” will be available in CD,  Digital and Vinyl formats, and can be pre-ordered from the following:

With the release date of the 15th March approaching, Dark Essence Records have revealed the title track from SUPERLYNX’s upcoming album “New Moon”.

“New Moon”  is described by the band as one of the slower and heavier songs on the album. It is about a new beginning and coming to it through an inner drive that is always there, but which is also connected to the bigger picture, to the cosmos,  and to the force of life, going back billions of years, and who knows how far into the future. There is some heavy existentialism going on here”.

As well as below:

The Norwegian doom trio originally started life in 2013 as a duo, when drummer Ole Teigen and bassist/vocalist Pia Isaksen formed SUPERLYNX. It wasn’t until they heard guitarist Daniel Bakken at rehearsals that SUPERLYNX became the trio that it is today.  Together, they went on to create the band’s sophomore full-length album “New Moon”, which was recorded by the band themselves, with a little help from Ole Jørgen Moe who recorded SUPERLYNX’s debut album.

Mixed  by the band’s long-time sound engineer Amund Tømmerbakke, and mastered by Fridtjof Lindeman at Strype Audio, tracklisting for “New Moon” is as follows:

01.   Hex
02.   Breath
03.   Becoming the Sea
04.   New Moon
05.   Indian Summer
06.   These Children that come at us with Knives
07.   Scarecrow
08.   Cold Black Sea
09.   The Groove
10.   The Thickest Night

Dark Essence Records have kicked off 2019 with the release of a new single taken from “New Moon, the upcoming full-length album from the Norwegian doom/psych trio SUPERLYNX.

The single, for the track “Indian Summer”, can be streamed or downloaded from the following http://phonofile.link/indian-summer

SUPERLYNX’s Pia Isaksen, who also did the artwork for “Indian Summer”, and for the album itself,  has this to say about the track:

Indian summer is one of the more feel good songs on the album where we focussed on bringing out the positive aspect about surviving hard times. It is a mental gathering of strength and a celebration of finally being able to let go and move on. The title Indian Summer represents something that comes late but which is good. The scream in the last part of the song took all I had, and it really felt like an act of banishing lingering trauma.

SUPERLYNX  was originally formed as a duo  by drummer Ole Teigen and bassist/vocalist Pia Isaksen in 2013. However, after  meeting with guitarist Daniel Bakken, coupled with his performance during rehearsals, SUPERLYNX became a fully fledged trio.

“New Moon” will be SUPERLYNX’s  second full-length album and was recorded by the band themselves, with a little help from Ole Jørgen Moe, who recorded their debut album.  Mixed  by the band’s long-time sound engineer Amund Tømmerbakke, and mastered by Fridtjof Lindeman at Strype Audio, tracklisting for “New Moon” is as follows:

Dark Essence Records have set the  15th March 2019 as the release date for “New Moon”, the upcoming full-length album from SUPERLYNX.  But fans of the Norwegian doom/psycho trio will not have to wait that long to hear something new from the band, because today the label has released a single for the opening track from the album.

The single, “Hex” can be streamed and downloaded from http://phonofile.link/superlynx-hex

Superlynx SinglePR

Commenting on “Hex”, SUPERLYNX also give fans an insight into the ethos behind  “New Moon” as a whole:

Like most of the new album, HEX was written in challenging times, with feelings of hopelessness caused by both personal and external circumstances. The song was given a ritualistic expression, representing a deep, primal feeling and a need to alter the dark reality. Through creative force, love and a wish for better times, this feeling is transformed into music and given a positive outlet. In this way, HEX represents the essence of the album. We have all been through dark times and have dealt with a lot of it through music. You can say that making the album has been a sort of alchemical process. The focus has been on getting through the dark and holding on to what is good in this world. And one of the best things is that music has come out of it.

Additionally, The Obelisk is premiering a music video for “Hex” which can be seen at http://theobelisk.net/obelisk/2018/12/06/superlynx-new-moon-hex-video-premiere

“New Moon” will be the second full-length album from SUPERLYNX, which was formed in 2013 by drummer Ole Teigen and bassist/vocalist Pia Isaksen.  A subsequent meeting with guitarist Daniel Bakken, coupled with his performance during rehearsals, changed the duo’s mind about remaining a two-piece  and SUPERLYNX became the trio it is today.

With cover art by Pia Isaksen, “New Moon” was recorded by the band themselves, with a little help from Ole Jørgen Moe, who recorded their debut album.  Mixed  by the band’s long-time sound engineer Amund Tømmerbakke, and mastered by Fridtjof Lindeman at Strype Audio, tracklisting for “New Moon” is as follows:

01. Hex
02.   Breath
03.   Becoming the Sea
04.   New Moon
05.   Indian Summer
06.   These Children that come at us with Knives
07.   Scarecrow
08.   Cold Black Sea
09.   The Groove
10.   The Thickest Night
