Orkan

Orkan

Norwegian Black Metallers ORKAN are set to release the band’s third full-length album fall 2018.

ORKAN’s four-man lineup was formed in 2008 by TAAKE’s live guitarist Gjermund Fredheim and ex- BYFROST drummer Rune Nesse. Having been joined by former GRIMNORTH bassist Sindre Hillesdal and frontman Einar Fjelldal (ex-GRAVEMACHINE), ORKAN released their debut full-length album “Crimson Canvas” in 2012, and their acclaimed sophomore album ‘Livlaus’ in 2015.

Whilst “Crimson Canvas” is, as described by the band, “a self-financed, thrashy album”, ORKAN left this sound behind them and oriented their musical vision for a much darker direction, taking the classic Norwegian Black Metal sound and incorporating into it influences from many other genres, to create atmospheric melodies with haunting vocals and intense blastbeats.
