Label: APOLLON RECORDS
Labelled by some as the heaviest band from Norway’s west coast, Bismarck’s (from Bergen) uncompromising, sludgy riff mantras and psychedelic escapades have been stirring things up in the Norwegian underground after the band released their acclaimed debut album URKRAFT in August 2018. Inspired by a wide array of genres and styles - from amp melting stoner-doom, to 60s and 70s psychedelic rock, the Norwegian black metal they grew up with, and Middle Eastern folk music - Bismarck’s music alternates between intense fuzzed out heaviness and clean, atmospheric drones, with its lyrics expounding upon Western esotericism, altered states of consciousness and a mystical apocalypse. Now they are back with their second album, Oneiromancer, and it’s even darker, harder and more adventurous than it’s predecessor.
