Kari Rueslåtten, founding member of the progressive doom metal band The 3rd and the Mortal, has announced a March 7, 2014 release date for "Time to Tell," her fifth solo album, and first in eight years, via Despotz Records. Time to Tell can be pre-ordered now online at this location.
"The composing has been done by me sitting at the piano singing," commented Rueslåtten. "No drum-beats or co-composers this time! I wanted to go back to the core of songwriting. If the verse and chorus works just accompanied by the piano - it will work with other arrangements in studio too.
"What really triggered me to start making music again were all the kind messages I got from fans around the world asking me when new music would surface. I am most humble and grateful to find that there are people out there who have followed my music since my early beginning, back in The 3rd and the Mortal-days, and through all my solo albums."
"Time to Tell" was recorded and produced at Øra Studio in Trondheim, Norway with Norwegian Grammy Award-winning producer Jostein Ansnes. The 11-track, all-acoustic album features guest musicians Jostein Ansnes (guitars), Rune Arnesen (drums), Trygve Brøske (piano and pump organ) and Eirik Øien (upright bass). More...
Norwegian schizo metallers ATROX have uploaded a previously unreleased track on their MySpace page. The song is called "Den store hvite stillhet," which means "the big white silence" in Norwegian. It is inspired by polar explorer Roald Amundsen. An outtake from the "Binocular" recording sessions, "Den store hvite stillhet" did not make the final cut for the album.
On other news, guitarist Rune Sørgård will not be joining the band for the upcoming gigs, since he will soon become a father. He will be replaced on those shows by Trond Engum from THE 3RD AND THE MORTAL, who will step in as a live session guitarist.
