St. Satan - Horns for Adornment (2010)

front image

Dropped in my mailbox, here's a new band from Norway. They wrote: St Satan is a hard rock band based in Bergen, Norway. The members are a tasty blend of veterans of the hard rock/metal scene (Borknagard, The Batallion, The Swamp Babies, Lost at Last) and prominent members of the jazz/noise/experimental scene (Krøyt, Skomsork, Trio Gud, Jazkamer, Public Enema), belting out groovy hard rock tunes in the vein of Clutch, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Jesus Lizard, Kyuss and Ted Nugent. The album "Horns for adornment" features ten hardhitting, dynamic tracks, presented by the band as a unit, recorded with all five members playing at the same time in the same studio. Just like the old jazz classics.The album was recorded, mixed and mastered in less than 10 hours (!) on the 6th of February 2010 at Duper Studios by Jørgen Træen and Iver Sandøy.

The band:
Trond "Abs" Absalonsen: Vocals (The Swamp Babies/Slut Macine)
Thomas "Thomaster" Dahl: Guitar (Krøyt, Skomsork, Marion Raven)
Kai K Lie: Bass (The Batallion, Ex-Borknagard)
Tarjei A Heggernes: Guitar (Lost at Last)
Nils A Drønen: Drums (Jazkamer, Der Brief, Trio Gud)
