Susperia To Release New Album

Norwegian band Susperia – which recruited new vocalist Bernt Fjellestad last summer – just recorded a new album, with full details pending. For now, the group issued this statement online:

“Susperia are now in search for a record label to release our new album and our back catalouge. Please spread the word! We’ve gone back to our roots, with a more brutal expression both vocal and music wise. Still with the melodic Susperia sound you know, but more grim. We can’t wait for you to hear it!”

Abyssic Releasing “A Winter’s Tale” Album

In 1997, Memnock (Susperia) founded Abyssic Dreams and recorded a two song demo together with drummer Athera (now vocalist in Susperia and Chrome Division). Not much happened after that as they focused on Susperia – a band they started together with Tjodalv (Dimmu Borgir) and guitarist Elvorn.

Abyssic Dreams went into hibernation and in 2012 Memnock wanted to give life to his old project again after coincidentally meeting Andre Aaslie, who just had finished the debut album of the orchestral extreme metal band Gromth. This was the beginning of a unique collaboration between the two, and within one and a half years they had material enough to start the recording of the album.

Memnock’s band mate in Susperia, Elvorn, was engaged as guitarist, and soon after Asgeir Mickelson (Borknagar, Ihsahn, Spiral Architect) came in to handle the drums.

The band changed names from Abyssic Dreams to just Abyssic and went into the reputable Toproom Studio to record the album during 2014. The mix & mastering took place at the very same place the winter of 2015. A release date is finally set for February 26, 2016 and the track listing is as follows:

1. A Funeral Elegy
2. A Winter’s Tale
3. Sombre Dreams
4. The Silent Shrine
