Great news people! 
We will soon enter the studio to record our 4th album titled 'Wolf in the Sky'. 

And this time around we got the amazing Baard Kolstad from 'Leprous' and 'Rendezvous Point' on drums!
Baard is not only one of the best drummers from Norway, but he is also considered to be one of the best drummers in the world! This is an absolute honor to us, and we are looking forward to some studio sessions in the near future!

A LETTER FROM THE KING OF NORWAY!

We are very honored by recieving this letter in whitch King Harald V of Norway sends his thank you, regarding the song "When The King Cried".

The song is inspired by the moment when the King burst into tears during the memorial service for the Utøya victims in 2011.


The fact that His Majesty finds it in his heart to say thank you to us, when all we wanted to do was to thank him, says a lot about what a great King he is, but also what a great country Norway really is!

We ARE active regarding the pre-production of a brand new album! The covid19 situation totally strangled the planned promo-tour for our album "This Is Madness" earlier this year, but it also forced the bandmembers to become more creative during the lockdown!
