Norway's prog metal masters Green Carnation return to the music scene in 2006 on a much softer note when "The Acoustic Verses" is released January 24 th , 2006 in North America via The End Records.

"The Acoustic Verses" finds the sextet successfully maneuvering through acoustic realms, peppered with passionate guitar riffs and eloquent melodies. It's a distant step from their prog metal/hard rock ways of previous material, but in many ways, it's what you'd expect from a band like Green Carnation. Never one to stand still.

Green Carnation have changed things up again and this might send some previous listeners askew, but for the real die-hard fans of the band, they'll come to understand that with the amount of work that went into the production, lyrics and music of "The Acoustic Verses" that the music here is just as potent and expressive as any of the heavier material they have released.


1. Sweet leaf

About the all-acoustic album, singer Kjetil Nordhus says, “‘The Acoustic Verses' is in many ways Green Carnation through and through. It's yet another album where you'll find the band exploring new music, but as always with the focus on the quality within the songs and very strong melodies. We are delighted with the outcome and I think we will make old Green Carnation fans happy; we are blessed with an open minded fan-base. I also hope that we can gain some new fans with this album. For Sublife Productions this is a great debut album to work with. It's great to feel the credibility of Green Carnation while working with people far away from Norway and it makes everybody involved very much optimistic for ‘The Acoustic Verses' and for the future of the band.”
