3RD ATTEMPT DEBUT TRACK FROM UPCOMING ALBUM. ARTWORK AND DETAILS REVEALED

3rdAttemptPR2

When, in late 2014, guitarists Tchort and BloodPervertor announced that they were leaving Black Metal titans CARPATHIAN FOREST to form their own band the 3rd ATTEMPT, there were some who questioned the wisdom of leaving the safety of such an iconic band in order to start something new. But, less than a year later, on the 25th September, Dark Essence Records is set to release the band’s debut full-length album “Born in Thorns”, which will show just how right the two renowned guitarists were in deciding to leave an environment they felt had become stale and stifling, in order to feel the rush of creativity and enthusiasm once again.

As a taste of what to expect from “Born in Thorns” the track “Art of Domination” has been debuted today and can be heard below and at https://soundcloud.com/dark-essence-records/3rd-attempt-art-of-domination

Barely drawing breath after their announcement, Tchort (GREEN CARNATION, ex-CARPATHIAN FOREST, ex EMPEROR, ex BLOOD RED THRONE) and BloodPervertor ( ex-CARPATHIAN FOREST) chose Ødemark (ex-MIDNATTSVREDE) as their vocalist, following online auditions that elicited responses from both experienced and new vocalists from all over the world. The lineup was then completed with the addition of drummer Tybalt (FORTID, DEN SAAKALDTE) whose performance as a session drummer for the 3rd ATTEMPT at this year’s Blastfest convinced the others that he was the man for the job.
With producer Endre Kirkesola, known for his work with CARPATHIAN FOREST, BLOOD RED THRONE, GREEN CARNATION, URGEHAL, TSJUDER, at the helm, the 3rd ATTEMPT entered the Studio Sanden in Kristiansand to record “Born in Thorns”. Mixing and mastering was done by Marius Strand at the Strand Studio. This is an album that showcases the well-known writing skills of the two founders, as well as contributions from the new members, and turns the old-school Black Metal vibe up several notches by introducing different elements, including rock n roll/black n roll, to produce a unique take on the Classic Black Metal sound, giving it a fresh feeling and a distinctive groove.

Artwork for “Born in Thorns” is by Jon Tønnessen and tracklisting on the ten-track album is as follows:

1. Torment Nation
2. Dark Vision
3. Art of Domination
4. We Defy
5. Born in Thorns
6. Beast Within
7. Sons of the Winter
8. Nekrogrammaton
9. Firestorm
10. Anti-Self

THE 3RD ATTEMPT, THE NEW BAND FROM FORMER CARPATHIAN FOREST GUITARISTS, POSTS FIRST STUDIO REPORT WITH PHOTOS AND VIDEOS

Work on the debut full-length album from THE 3RD ATTEMPT, which is set to be released on Dark Essence Records later this year, is progressing at a very satisfactory pace. The band entered the Sanden Studio in Kristiansand on the 17th April and they have posted the first in what will be a series of Studio Reports which will follow the progress of the album. The first report, which includes videos of drummer Tybalt laying down the drum tracks, as well as a series of photos by guitarist Tchort, can be seen at https://3rdattemptband.wordpress.com/
With the drum tracks now recorded, the next job will be to create a rough mix, ready for the guitars and bass to be recorded later this week. Recording and producing the album is Endre Kirkesola, who is the band’s sound engineer in both the studio and live, and who has worked with bands such as BLOOD RED THRONE, CHROME DIVISION, URGEHAL, TSJUDER, GREEN CARNATION, CARPATHIAN FOREST and IMMORTAL.

Formed late last year by former CARPATHIAN FOREST guitarists Tchort (GREEN CARNATION, ex-CARPATHIAN FOREST, ex EMPEROR, ex BLOOD RED THRONE) and BloodPervertor (APOSTASY, ex-CARPATHIAN FOREST, ex NEONGOD), THE 3RD ATTEMPT’s lineup includes Kaahrl Ødemark (ex- MIDNATTSVREDE, ex-NECROCAVE) on vocals and Tybalt (FORTID, DEN SAAKALDTE, ETHEREAL FOREST, ex- HEATHEN DEITY, ex-PANTHEON I) on drums. With such a pedigree it was no surprise that the band found itself being courted by various labels before eventually allowing themselves to be snapped up by Norway’s Dark Essence Records.

THE 3rd ATTEMPT’s next live appearance will be at the Southern Discomfort Metal Festival, in Kristiansand, Norway, in September.
More information about THE 3rd ATTEMPT can be found on the official Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/the3rdattemptofficial

THE 3rd ATTEMPT recently debuted an unfinished demo track “The Beast Within”, which also features CARPATHIAN FOREST’s Daniel Vrangsinn on bass and Anders Kobro on drums, and which was used in a shortened form for the vocalist auditions. “The Beast Within” can be heard below and on THE 3rd ATTEMPT’s SoundCloud page at https://soundcloud.com/the-3rd-attempt/the-3rd-attempt-the-beast-within-demo-track

THE 3RD ATTEMPT, THE NEW BAND FROM FORMER CARPATHIAN FOREST GUITARISTS, SET TO ENTER THE STUDIO IN APRIL

3rdAttemptPR2

Former CARPATHIAN FOREST guitarists Tchort and Bloodpervertor certainly hit the ground running when they formed their new band THE 3rd ATTEMPT. In under a year they have managed to audition musicians and get themselves a fully rehearsed lineup which made its live debut at one of Norway’s biggest festivals, sifted through a selection of offers from labels before settling on Dark Essence Records, and have written and prepared all the material for their debut full-length album.
And, April 17th will see them enter the Dub Studio in Oslo, to begin recording their new album with producer Endre Kirkesola, who has worked with bands such as BLOOD RED THRONE, CHROME DIVISION, URGEHAL, TSJUDER, GREEN CARNATION, CARPATHIAN FOREST. Aside from working with some of Norway’s greats in the studio, Kirkesola is also THE 3rd ATTEMPT’s live sound engineer, a job he also performed for IMMORTAL.

“We are really looking forward to begin recording the album,” commented guitarist Tchort. “The whole process of setting up the band and getting on stage for the first time with THE 3rd ATTEMPT has been a real boost, not just in terms of creativity, but also in terms of a renewed enthusiasm for performing. It was a boost we had really been in dire need of over the past few years”.

Photos and videos from the studio will be posted on THE 3rd ATTEMPT’s Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/the3rdattemptofficial, and it is anticipated that the album will be released on Dark Essence Records towards the end of the year.

THE 3rd ATTEMPT recently debuted an unfinished demo track “The Beast Within”, which also features CARPATHIAN FOREST’s Daniel Vrangsinn on bass and Anders Kobro on drums, and which was used in a shortened form for the vocalist auditions. “The Beast Within” can be heard below and on THE 3rd ATTEMPT’s SoundCloud page at https://soundcloud.com/the-3rd-attempt/the-3rd-attempt-the-beast-within-demo-track

The band’s next live appearance will be at the Southern Discomfort Metal Festival, in Kristiansand, Norway, in September.

THE 3RD ATTEMPT, THE NEW BAND FROM FORMER CARPATHIAN FOREST GUITARISTS, INKS DEAL WITH DARK ESSENCE RECORDS

Dark Essence Records_3rd Attempt_Logo

When CARPATHIAN FOREST guitarists Tchort and BloodPervertor announced last year that they were leaving to set up a new band, THE 3rd ATTEMPT, they knew that they were leaving behind them the security of one of the most iconic Norwegian Black Metal bands of all time, and one with a huge following, to start something completely new and unproven, at a time when labels are reluctant to dip their toes into uncharted territories and new bands emerge in their hundreds every week, only to disappear into nothingness. But when you have two musicians with the skill and experience of Tchort (GREEN CARNATION, ex-CARPATHIAN FOREST, ex EMPEROR, ex BLOOD RED THRONE) and BloodPervertor (APOSTASY, ex-CARPATHIAN FOREST, ex NEONGOD) who have the desire to work in an environment that could re-ignite the enthusiasm and creativity they felt they had lost, then a move was inevitable. Interest from various labels was certainly not slow in materialising and today the band are pleased to be able to announce that they have inked a deal with one of Norway’s foremost labels, Dark Essence Records.

Commenting on their decision to sign with Dark Essence, the band had this to say: “Dark Essence signalled their interest in the possibility of working together as soon as we announced THE 3rd ATTEMPT, even before they had heard anything, and they have kept in close touch, actually making the effort to attend rehearsals and get to know our new members. In the end, it came down to a decision as to whether we wanted to sign with a large label and, as a new band, risk disappearing in the depth of their rosters, or whether we wanted to work with a label who was genuinely interested in us as a band, and who would be with us every step of the way, in all aspects. We also heard many good things about Dark Essence from the musicians already signed to them, so, Dark Essence it is! We’ve got a lot of work ahead of us with preparing and rehearsing the new material ready to enter the studio, and we are excited to see what the future will bring”.

Dark Essence Records commented on the signing: “It takes a substantial label to be able to afford to sign a band like CARPATHIAN FOREST, so when it was announced that Tchort and BloodPervertor were leaving and starting again from scratch with THE 3rd ATTEMPT, we were immediately interested in seeing what direction they would take, and opened a dialogue with them . We already knew what formidable musicians they were and what they were capable of, so Dark Essence’s Kristine Knapskog went along to rehearsals to check out their new material. She very much liked their enthusiasm and attitude, and their desire to work closely with a label and we are very happy to welcome them to the Dark Essence family “.
Aside from Tchort and BloodPervertor, THE 3rd ATTEMPT’s lineup includes frontman Kaahrl Ødemark (ex- MIDNATTSVREDE, ex-NECROCAVE) who was selected following online auditions that drew in submissions from all over the world, and drummer Tybalt (FORTID, DEN SAAKALDTE, ETHEREAL FOREST, ex- HEATHEN DEITY, ex-PANTHEON I) who was originally slated to join the band as session live drummer for an upcoming appearance, but after taking part in rehearsals, it was decided that he would become a full-time member.

The 3rd ATTEMPT’s debut live appearance will be at Blastfest, in Bergen, Norway, on the 18th February on board the boat “Showline”, which will take fans on a 5 hour cruise of Bergen’s spectacular fjord, and which kicks off the 4 day festival.

THE 3rd ATTEMPT recently debuted a demo track “The Beast Within”, which also features CARPATHIAN FOREST’s Daniel Vrangsinn on bass and Anders Kobro on drums, and which was used in a shortened form for the vocalist auditions. It is not a “finished” track. “The Beast Within” can be heard below and on THE 3rd ATTEMPT’s SoundCloud page at https://soundcloud.com/the-3rd-attempt/the-3rd-attempt-the-beast-within-demo-track
