We have three new Fall releases ready for preordering:
Telepath is a new solo project from White Willow mastermind Jacob Holm-Lupo.
A bit of thrash, a bit of doom, a fair dash of 70s hard rock, and also more than a little of the kind of soundtrack music that accompanied 80s horror flicks . Mental Mutations will be out on October 18th
Dennis - the LEGENDARY Dennis Reksten from Bergen / Garage / Elektrisk Regn is back with a new band & album, just in time to celebrate his 70th birthday. Preorder for release on September 13th
Also, a new album on Apollon Prog: Laughing Stock from Tønsberg. A band with no no goal of fitting in a specific genre. 80’s artpop, 70’s prog, neo-prog, folk and metal. They're all parts that fit in the puzzle.
The single Afraid is already out, with the album Sunrise to follow on September 27th.
After years in hibernation, the multi headed monster named Solstorm has awakened again.
The contrast between darkness and light, the beautiful and the ugly, the delicate and the heavy - Solstorm combines heavy riffs, hard drums and walls of noise with tender melodies and soaring instumental passages
Eight years after the debut, Solstorm is finally ready for a new album.
"II" contains 55 minutes of music, divided into 5 songs, with a organic and massive, ever-growing sound. Frail melodies combined with heavy riffs, huge instrumental parts, untraditional song structures and patience to let ideas evolve over time.
Released as CD and three-sided 2LP set - Available to preorder from our webshop now.
