Manngard To Release 'European Cowards' In August

According to Nocturnal Art Productions, Norwegian extreme metallers MANNGARD have set "European Cowards" as the title of their sophomore album, due on August 27. The CD was recorded at Lydriket studios.

Commented the band: "The sessions in Lydriket has been most successful, and the band has knocked out and captured 10 songs over three days. All songs have been recorded live in studio, capturing an immense stage-like energy from the band.

"The album [is] turn[ing] out much more thrash metal-y than we had anticipated. This is possibly a result of the large amounts of beer consumed during the sessions. Or the thrashy material could be what has inspired this excessive gluttony. We are honestly not sure. Either way, a lot of beer has been consumed, and we stumble out with our hands on one hell of a thrash metal monster, with the characteristic MANNGARD twists, of course!!"

Manngard Enter The Studio

Norwegian extreme metallers MANNGARD entered Lydriket studios on March 15 to begin recording their as-yet-untitled sophomore album.

Commented the band: In the years that have passed since we originally released 'Circling Buzzards', we've all been busy in the metal field, it not necessarily keeping MANNGARD in the public eye at all times."

Vocalist Olav Iversen has seen major exposure and massive gigging activity with his doom outfit SAHG, also featuring members of AUDREY HORNE and GORGOROTH. Guitarist Olav Kristiseter has made his Norwegian debut as a novelist with "Blodlenka" (The Bloodchain), a morbid tale of Norwegian backwood monstrosity, largely based on the lyrical themes from "Circling Buzzards", as well as appearing on the JAZKAMER album "Metal Music Machine", alongside Ivar Bj?rnson and Iver Sandoy. Drummer Iver Sandoy has seen his services being utilized by ENSLAVED (the "Terje Vigen" movie project), more JAZKAMER recordings and gigs around Europe, and he is now also drumming for TRINACRIA, the new band featuring (among others) Ivar Bjornson, Grutle Kjellson and Arve "Ice Dale" Isdal of ENSLAVED.

While staying busy with other projects, MANNGARD has kept writing new material and fine-tuning it in rehearsals. Their considerable collective energy is now focused on the recording of the new MANNGARD album, which promises to be even more massive, twisted and evil than the debut.
