Work on the debut full-length album  from THE 3RD ATTEMPT, which is set to be released on Dark Essence Records later this year,  is progressing at a very satisfactory pace.  The band entered the Sanden Studio in Kristiansand on the 17th April and they have posted the first in what will be a series of Studio Reports which will follow the progress of the album.   The first report, which includes videos of drummer Tybalt laying down the drum tracks, as well as a series of photos by guitarist Tchort,  can be seen at

With the drum tracks now recorded, the next job will be to create a rough mix, ready for the guitars and bass to be recorded later this week.   Recording and producing the album is Endre Kirkesola, who is the band’s sound engineer in both the studio and live, and who has worked with bands such as BLOOD RED THRONE, CHROME DIVISION, URGEHAL, TSJUDER, GREEN CARNATION, CARPATHIAN FOREST and IMMORTAL.

Formed late last year by former CARPATHIAN FOREST guitarists Tchort (GREEN CARNATION, ex-CARPATHIAN FOREST, ex EMPEROR, ex BLOOD RED THRONE) and BloodPervertor (APOSTASY, ex-CARPATHIAN FOREST, ex NEONGOD), THE 3RD ATTEMPT’s lineup includes Kaahrl Ødemark (ex- MIDNATTSVREDE, ex-NECROCAVE) on vocals  and  Tybalt (FORTID, DEN SAAKALDTE, ETHEREAL FOREST, ex- HEATHEN DEITY, ex-PANTHEON I) on drums.  With such a pedigree it was no surprise that the band found itself being  courted by various labels before eventually allowing themselves to be snapped up by Norway’s Dark Essence Records.

THE 3rd ATTEMPT’s  next live appearance will be at the Southern Discomfort Metal Festival, in Kristiansand, Norway, in September.

THE 3rd ATTEMPT recently debuted an unfinished demo track “The Beast Within”, which also features CARPATHIAN FOREST’s Daniel Vrangsinn on bass and Anders Kobro on drums, and which was  used in a shortened form for the  vocalist auditions.  “The Beast Within” can be heard below and on THE 3rd ATTEMPT’s SoundCloud page at
