Since rising to prominence with his first band TRELLDOM, legendary singer, frontman, artist and composer, Gaahl, has been one of Norway’s most talked about and respected extreme metal musicians. His work with TRELLDOM, GORGOROTH, WARDRUNA and GOD SEED has been widely regarded as some of the best the black metal scene has had to offer.
Gaahls passion and dedication to his art has earned him followers far and beyond the realms of the metal community, becoming a household name in the art scene and a he has become a well-respected alternative thinker.
Recently the charismatic singer has assembled some of Norway’s finest metal musicians under the new moniker GAAHLS WYRD. The band consist of Ole Walaunet (THE BATALLION, GOD SEED, GRIMFIST), Frode Kilvik (KRAKOW, AETERNUS) and Kevin Kvåle (HORIZON ABLAZE). This highly qualified bunch has recently toured a finely selected, career spanning repertoire from Gaahl’s time in TRELLDOM, GORGOROTH and GOD SEED to great acclaim.
Over the past months the band has found them selves holed up in Solslottet Studios with producer Iver Sandøy (ENSLAVED) to record their debut album which is already shaping up to be something out of the extraordinary.
First class riffing in combination with excellent musicianship and Gaahl’s haunting presence is bound to take you places you’ve never been before. The already well-known energy a mysterious aura is omnipresent, but there is no exaggeration in pointing out that Gaahl’s vocal delivery on this album will be something out of the ordinary.
