Mistur Releasing "In Memoriam"

It's been a long wait since Norway's Mistur made its mark on the world with debut, "Attende." Fortunately, the wait has not been in vain. The band's latest full-length, "In Memoriam," sees Mistur return with long and layered arrangements, clever melodies, and and progressive elements.

Mistur was forged in Sogndal, Norway by Espen Bakketeig and Andre Raunehaug, and joined shortly thereafter by Stian Bakketeig (Vreid, ex-Windir, ex-Cor Scorpii). Following just one demo, the group landed a deal with Einheit Produktionen, who would release the "Attende" debut in 2009. Apart from some festival shows and a tour however, the band fell dormant for a short time, before the work on the follow-up album started.

With new vocalist Oliver Øien and new drummer Tomas Myklebust, Mistur is back and more potent than ever before. "In Memoriam" was captured in Conclave and Earshot Studios as well as the band's private studio, produced by Mistur mainman Espen Bakketeig, and mixed by Bjørnar E. Nilsen (Black Hole Generator, Vulture Industries).

Already issued in Europe late last month via Dark Essence Records, the label will unleash "In Memoriam" in North America on May 27th, 2016 on CD. The track listing is:

1. Downfall
2. Distant Peaks
3. Firstborn Son
4. Matriarch's Lament
5. The Sight
6. Tears Of Rememberance More...

It's been months in the making, but the schedule for Blastfest 2016 is complete. Now in its third year, the Bergen festival has not only put together yet another incredible lineup, but also one in which will be a one-time-only celebration of the Norwegian scene.

A 100% Norwegian lineup, which includes the likes of Abbath, Arcturus, Taake, 1349, Gorgoroth and even some rare appearances from the likes of Green Carnation. Blastfest 2016 will be a truly memorable occasion, with chief and owner Yngve Christiansen comments:

"2016 will be a very special festival edition with a lineup consisting solely of Norwegian bands. The bands represented at Blastfest are the legends, those from the beginning, the ones who made it evolve... the ones who disappeared... the ones who never stopped... the ones whom you should have heard more about... and the ones you will hear about. We have done our best to make a strong lineup representing Norway in the best possible way." More...
