The legendary pioneers of Viking Metal, Einherjer, have carried out their vision for more than two decades. The band was there when Norwegian extreme metal grew forth and took shape as an enormous cultural export. Only 4 years after their Norwegian Grammy-nominated masterpiece “Av Oss, For Oss” and 2 years after “Dragons Of The North XX”, the band comes back with a smasher! The band will release their ninth full-length titled “Norrøne Spor” on November 9, and the record’s first single and music video “Spre Vingene” is already available today!
The bold quartet The Cruel Intentions keeps on pushing the boundaries with their unique, modern glam rock sound! Today, the band releases their new single and music video "Jawbreaker"! The second single off their upcoming debut "No Sign Of Relief", is a ridiculously catchy, 3-minute ride of pure rock'n'roll attitude and power, and definitely one of the album's highlights! The band's vocalist, Lizzy DeVine, has commented:
"Sometimes when your pen hits the paper while writing a song you start to realize you’re actually having an inner monologue with your 20-something year old self. 'Jawbreaker' is the outcome of that. Whether it's a finger pointing or a mental high five to myself I’m not sure!…”
ATENA, the band of 'sheer energy, uniqueness and passion' releases their new single & music video "Death Is All I Think About" today!
With their new single, the band takes off where they left with their third studio album "Possessed", touching on themes of depression and fear of the unknown. However, this time Atena dives even deeper, reflecting on themes of metal illness and suicide. "Death Is All I Think About" is a touching and melodically expressive track that both sonically and lyrically illustrates the deepest abyss our souls might find themselves into.
The Norwegian thrash outfit Tantara are bringing the genre back to its roots, combining heavy melodies, fast riffs and complex song structures! Today, the band is premiering their second single and the album title track “Sum Of Forces”. The band has commented: "'Sum Of Forces' describes and symbolizes all the combined forces that impacts descisions, opinions, actions and solutions in anyone's life. Whether it is good or bad, we are all slaves of the forces impacting us. Every single persons life is formed by these forces - Environment, family and friends. By grasping this principle, 'Sum Of Forces' strives to teach us that anything is possible as long as the total force is strong enough; We can all achieve anything together or as one. "
On February 9 this year, Skambankt released their 6th studio album, the critically acclaimed "Horisonten Brenner". Following the release, the band went on an extensive Norwegian tour that covered major towns from Alta in the North to Kristiansand in the South of Norway. One of the highlights along the way was, of course, to play for a sold-out Rockefeller in Oslo. The concert was recorded and has now been mixed and mastered in the band's own studio, Bore Gardsrockeri. The band will release their first ever live album “Rockefeller - 09.03.18” on August 24!
