Norwegian metal outfit Susperia has been confirmed as Norway's entry into the Eurovision Song Contest, which will take place in Germany on May 14th next year. They will be joined at the performance by former Dimmu Borgir keyboardist, Mustis.

Says Susperia frontman Athera: "We are not afraid to lose credibility, a competition needs variation. We know how good our music is, with great melodies, energy and hooks in the songs. With this in mind, we want to let the big masses discover our music, and enjoy our hidden treasures.

"It has been a new gift for me and very inspiring to gather with Susperia. Since Elvorn and I established our first band in 1995 as kids, then meeting Memnock and knowing Tjodalv from my early days in Dimmu Borgir, it felt very natural to sit down and start to be creative again together with my old friends. I don't think keyboard is for just any kind of metal band or band in general, but Susperia have the open mind for this and the right elements for sure, and we agree that something really good can come out of this. We made a killer song together that`s going to be performed at the Norwegian Eurovision!! I really can't wait to perform again with a band that in a very dynamic way lift each other’s instruments and Atheras amazing vocals all together."

UPDATE: We've received word that the band first needs to participate in "Melodi Grand-Prix" Norwegian national selection and win this competition to represent the country in the Eurovision Song Contest. We are awaiting clarification from the band on whether or not that is the case.
