Dead Trooper Comments On Upcoming Album

With the end of the recording sessions in sight for Dead Trooper, front man and guitarist Morten Müller revealed a little information about what to expect from the Norwegian thrashers sophomore full-length album:

“We’re recording 13 tracks, and we expect to use 9 of those on the album, but obviously we’ll make our minds up exactly how many, and which ones, once we’ve finished the whole process. We’ve taken a much more organic approach than the one we took with our first full-length album 'Cynicist,' and we’re aiming at injecting a lot more of the energy that you find in our live performances into the new one."

Formed in 2002 in Oslo by Morten Müller and Birger Larsen together with then members Are Sorknes and Andreas Paulsen, Dead Trooper has since released two EPs as well as the debut album “Cynicist” which appeared in 2009. Dead Trooper has regularly played live, bringing its brand of what the band describes as “groovy, aggressive thrash metal” not only to audiences in their native Norway but also as far afield as South America.

“There was a point,” says Müller, “when we had gone through the usual line up changes that bands go through in their attempt to find the perfect line up, when I was almost tempted to wind the whole thing up, but then in 2008 the most incredible drummer in the shape of Jon Eirik Bokn came into the band’s life. His skills are matched by his larger than life personality, and his arrival brought a whole new enthusiasm and creativity to DEAD TROOPER. He was followed into the band by 1349, DEN SAAKALDTE and PANTHEON I bass player Tor R. Stavenes, who brought his own unique take on things, and we knew at that point that we had a good mix. We are very happy to say that this enthusiasm and creativity has remained unabated since their arrival."

Pantheon I Announces European Tour With Absu

Norwegian extreme metallers Pantheon I have been confirmed to support Absu on the ucpoming European tour due to take place this autumn. The band’s cellist, classically trained musician Live Julianne, explained about Pantheon I’s inclusion on the tour: “We didn’t think originally that we would be able to do the tour because of other prior commitments. We had really put it completely out of our minds when the slot suddenly became available again just as we were re-scheduling a few things ourselves, so it all worked out perfectly. Playing live is something we all enjoy, and we have been looking forward to touring with the new album since we finished recording it. We’re scheduled to do a 6-date tour in Norway in September before the European tour kicks off, so right now we’re busy rehearsing and preparing. Panntheon I never do things by halves, and we’re ready to hit the road with a vengeance."

Pantheon I's tour schedule is as follows: More...
