Finally it is here. After a long time with trying to shape this I am finally done. It has been trashed, redone, trashed again and redone over and over again. In a way it now kind of sums up what I have done in my EP’s the last 2 years in a single album.
The feelings in this story is a bit different from the others (which mostly are pure dark paths). This is a bit more “uplifting” story with the mixture of “normal” and the annoying dark passenger that still visits when he feels like it. I guess this is one of the things that made this a bit harder for me to express.
The name of the album is Sjelemesse. It is a Norwegian word that translates into English as requiem mass. The album has 7 tracks. Download from my bandcamp page.
I have worked on this single soundtrack on and off for many months now. I don’t see it fitting on any EP or album any time soon so I decided to share it as a single for now. I may en up releasing it on an Album later if it somehow by luck fits. I usually don’t do this but this time I felt it was “right”.
I sure hope I am able shape your feelings the way I wanted with this. Enjoy.

One week ago Grimtown Records released the collection named Caesarean Confession Tapes. One of my tune was present on the release along some very fine releases from some other artists. If you enjoy noise based music this just may be the thing for you. The release is free over at bandcamp.
This is the second release from Grimtown Records I am included in and if you happened to miss the last one it is not too late. Download the more industrial release Operation Payload from Grimtown Records homepage.
I have made a video for Mainstream Beauty from my latest EP Demons Will Bring Us Together. It shows my view on how mainstream beauty is forced on us.
Just for fun I wanted to give one of my soundscapes (missing justification) a try on “normal” people (people who listens to “normal music” and not fans of the style (industrial ambien/dark ambient/industrial) I do). It was quite interesting (and fun) reading the reviews and I felt like sharing them with you.
Demons Will Bring Us Together is released. With this album I wanted to tell a very specific story through the feelings the soundtracks (hopefully) creates. In other words I had more focus on the artistic part of the soundtracks than on the presentation. I still hope you manage to enjoy this though.
An interesting thing (for me) is that this time I have totally changed the way I work. Using only modern tools like ipad and laptop. I must say I miss fooling around with the tape recorder but this is way more effective in a already full schema. I doubt this have any effect on the production though as I have tried to create the same sound and feel as my earlier productions.
Sit down, close your eyes and let me bring you on a journey.
I have released a new EP. This time with a bit “less ambient” sound. If you are into Death Industrial this may be the thing for you. I have tried to capture the “inner calm” on this only to find something completely different.

Last year me and Stein Vegard started a cooperation project named Orbitoclast. Now our debut album is released. We start at our bandcamp page, with a “pay what you like” price. It will show up at iTunes Store, Spotify and Wimp too but that may take some days/weeks. Enjoy!
The Norwegian poet Øystein Hauge and I started a cooperation based on his poems and my composition and sound. The way we attacked this was to listen to the poems (he recorded himself reading them) a lot of times and try to catch the feelings and moods in them. This was translated into the soundscape and the shape of the composition. Here (bandcamp) you can hear the first result (poems are in Norwegian). We plan to do more so stay tuned.
