Brandneues Album der norwegischen Progressive Rock Band. Das Konzeptalbum thematisiert die norwegische Serienmörderin Belle Gunness, die 1981 in die USA emigrierte und dort ihr Unwesen trieb. Musikalisch erkunden Adventure immer noch die goldene Ära des symphonischen Hardrocks der 70er Jahre und mischt dabei progressive und folkige Elemente. Gitarren und Hammond-Orgel-Drive treffen auf mehrstimmigen Harmoniegesang und solides Fundament aus Bass und Drums.
Für Fans von Fans von Camel, Deep Purple, Uriah Heep und mehr. Kleine Vinyl-Version in limitierter Auflage.
…True crime, the prog metal way…




The Mid-Norwegian six-piece Adventure spent most of 2020 and early parts of 2021 writing and recording new material. Various lockdowns had its impact, making it hard for the band to work together. While searching for issues to write lyrics about, a friend of the band suggested to write about Belle Gunness. And so they did… Belle Gunness, born Brynhild Paulsdatter Størset in 1859, grew in very poor conditions in the parish of Selbu near Trondheim. She emigrated to USA in 1881, and before vanishing in 1908 she became one of the worst serial killers the world has seen. Local expertise on Belle Gunness’ life was consulted in the process of writing the lyrics.


TALES OF BELLE, PART 1 – ACROSS THE OCEAN features 11 of the songs written and recorded for this project. Thematically this album deals with Belle’s life in Norway, the emigration and settling down in Chicago. Musically, Adventure is still exploring the golden era of 70s symphonic hard rock, mixing in proggy and folky elements. The guitar and Hammond organ drive is still there, so is the multipart harmony vocals, and it’s all underpinned by a solid foundation of bass and drums. The second part of the duology is in the completing stages and will be released late 2022 / early 2023.
