Norwegian instrumental trio Grant The Sun, comprised by members of Insense and Beaten To Death, have just shared another track off their new EP “Simmar Ur Bild”, due out this Friday, November 30th, via Mas-Kina Recordings.

Titled “Ondskans Vaktmästare”, has premiered via Heavy Blog Is Heavy who commented “The entire EP is like this, complex, varied, but most of all, satisfying on a guttural, “base” level, a level which is sure to appeal to all fans of progressive, dark, and mostly “post” metal.”

The band play a luxuriously instrumental combination of post-rock and melodic metal that swirls together the sounds of darkness and triumph. Comparisons abound to the likes of Devin Townsend, Extol, Meshuggah, Animals as Leaders, Explosions in the Sky and The Ocean, all of which are viable but also up for debate.”
Decibel Magazine

“…nicely positioned in the modern instrumental progressive metal scene, with strong melodies akin to Skyharbor and Intervals poised against gritty, mathy grooves.”

Featuring members of Insense and Beaten To Death, Grant The Sun is a trio from Norway playing an instrumental metal sound influenced by the likes of Devin Townsend, Extol and Meshuggah.
The band began when founding members of Insense, Håvard Sveberg and Martin Rygge (who also handles guitars in grindcore group Beaten To Death) decided it was time to get together and make music again after more than ten years apart. Shortly after the duo was joined by childhood friend and guitar virtuoso Markus Lillehaug Johnsen.
Early last year, the trio released their self-titled debut EP, which was met with great critical acclaim and now the Norwegians are ready to release another EP featuring four new songs. As with the debut EP, the new effort was recorded with long time friend and producer Danne Bergstrand (Strapping Young Lad, Meshuggah, Behemoth) at Dug Out Studios over three busy days and sees Grant The Sun picking up where their first EP left off, merging heavy riffs and crushing rhythms with subtle, engaging prog-driven tones. Musically, it falls somewhere between Animals as Leaders, The Ocean and Explosions In The Sky, a stunning and infectious combination of prog, metal and post-rock that will surely appeal to fans of the aforementioned bands.
