Video footage of Norwegian progressive metallers ASPERA performing the song "Remorse" at the fourth annual Sluserock festival in Lunde, Norway on June 6, 2009 can be viewed below.ASPERA is putting the finishing touches on its debut album, "Ripples", due later in the year via an as-yet-undetermined record label. 10 solid songs will be released on the CD once a suitable record/publishing deal has been finalized. The tracks were mixed at Fascination Street Studios in Örebro, Sweden by Jens Bogren, who is well known for his work with OPETH, SYMPHONY X, HAMMERFALL, AMON AMARTH and PARADISE LOST. The five aspiring young musicians from Skien are already starting to compete with more established bands in the international metal scene. Under the name ILLUSION, ASPERA previously released three self-recorded EPs and has 40-plus live shows under its belt. But being just 19 years old, the bandmembers have not only a long and healthy future ahead of them but also a talent and creativity which belies their relative youth. On "Ripples", they deliver to a consistently high standard, and in Atle Pettersen, the band has a frontman with an outstanding and very unique voice. ASPERA is: Robin Ognedal - Guitar
Nickolas Pettersen - Keyboards
Joachim Strøm - Drums
Atle Pettersen - Vocals
Rein Blomquist - Bass For more information, visit www.asperaofficial.com.
