Latest Drontheim News
Below is our complete Drontheim news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
The new Drontheim single "Draume" is now available via all major digital stores. A video clip for the single produced by Dispenser Media has also been posted online and can be found below. The band also issued the following press release:
"Drontheim is a strictly non-political output with no collective agenda on any level except the artistic. Thematically it is rooted in a strong interest in the second world war in general, and more specifically the events, people and life as it were in Trondheim, Norway in the early 1940's, and also the German vision for Neu Drontheim - New Trondheim - the new capital for the Germanized Scandinavia.
"Lyrically it can be considered part documentary and part fiction, but as a whole it is focused on the dark and dystopian union of audible, lyrical and visual expressions that enables the artistic atmosphere Drontheim seek to provide.
"Not easily defined by limiting genres, but at times cinematic and atmospheric and at times distorted and strict, one can find traces of industrial rock, metal and electronica in the music. Drontheim features current and previous members of bands like Atrox, Manes, Chton, Bloodthorn and Lumsk."
The new Drontheim video for the song "3 lovløse dager" ("3 Lawless Days") can now be seen through the YouTube player available below. This is the second video made by Dispenser Media for Drontheim after the video for "Deadlight" in 2011.
The theme for both the song and video "3 lovløse dager" relates to the first few days following the liberation of Norway in 1945, when many women all over Norway were punished for their relations to German soldiers during the war.
Drontheim will play the Ladehammer Festival on Friday, August 31st. See more info on the festival at this location. Drontheim features active and previous members from bands like Atrox, Manes, Chton, Goat the Head, Lumsk, Bloodthorn, and others.
