MANNGARD Guitarist To Publish 'Shocking' Book

Guitarist Olav Kristiseter of the Norwegian extreme metallers MANNGARD is planning on releasing his debut novel through a well-known Norwegian publisher later in the year. According to a posting on Kristiseter's MySpace profile, "early readers have called [the book] a 'shocker.'"

MANNGARD re-released their debut album, "Circling Buzzards", in February via Nocturnal Art Productions/Candlelight Records.

MANNGARD, who last year signed with Nocturnal Art Productions (the label owned/operated by ZYKLON/EMPEROR guitarist Samoth), have already played in all the biggest Norwegian cities in addition to performing twice at the Hole In The Sky heavy metal festival. The Bergen-based quartet (who boast a 12-string bass player!) have also provided support for renowned Norwegian metallers RED HARVEST.

"Circling Buzzards" was engineered by Brynjulv Guddal and Herbrand Larsen (ENSLAVED).
