Diskord To Play South African Festival

Oslo, Norway-based band Diskord is confirmed to play in South Africa's Witchfest this coming March, 2016.

The festival is South Africa's biggest, and such a festival is in itself an event of notice for the country as a whole. As Metal Injection puts it, "It's safe to assume that South Africa doesn't see many international heavy metal acts touring down there, so when something happens it's a big deal."

Likewise, it is probably equally rare that a Norwegian death metal band, and a somewhat weird and progressive one at that, gets to travel all the way to Johannesburg to perform. The band Diskord has been active for well over 10 years, appearing at Inferno festival, Kill-Town in Denmark, Hole in the Sky in Bergen, By:Larm here in Oslo, Szczecin Extreme Festival in Szczecin and involved in tours around Europe, but never before - in Africa.

Witchfest is a festival dedicated to extreme metal music taking place in Johannesburg over three days next March.

Diskord Posts "Horrid Engine" Video

Norwegian prog/death metal trio Diskord has completed work on upcoming record "Oscillations." The mini-album is due out on digipak CD (August 15th) and two-variant colored vinyl (September 2nd) in cooperation between Hellthrasher Productions (Europe) and Australopithecus Records (North America).

The band’s bass player/vocalist, Eyvind, comments: “For this recording, we went into the studio with an intention to keep things simple and straightforward, and not spend too much time obsessing over every little detail. Out of this came a recording that is quite raw and unpolished, with a sound that we think is pretty close to what we sound like live or in the rehearsal space. The six songs on here should be recognizable in style to fans of Dystopics and Doomscapes, however, there are a few twists and turns here and there, of course. For instance, we have experimented with adding a few new elements to our sound, perhaps most notably through the addition of bowed (arco) bass on a couple of songs. Furthermore, this is the first recording with new guitarist Håvard Østli, and he has absolutely left his mark on it in terms of riffs, leads, lyrics, and vocal and guitar performances. Former guitarist Espen Hangård has also contributed to a couple of songs this time around.”

“Oscillations” features the cover artwork by Sindre Foss Skancke, and a music video for "Horrid Engine" can be seen below. The track listing is as follows:

1. Horrid Engine
2. Lethargic Regression
3. Hermit Dream
4. Elytrous Oscillations
5. Symbiotic Whims
6. A Downward Spire More...
