ARTIFACT: New Song Posted Online

ARTIFACT, the Stavanger, Norway-based goth-influenced rock/metal band, has posted a new song called "Nexus 6" on its MySpace page. The track will appear on the group's sophomore album, tentatively due in early 2011.

ARTIFACT's "New Messiah" video can be viewed below. The clip features a special guest appearance by TRISTANIA singer Mariangela Demurtas.

ARTIFACT released its debut album, "The Only Salvation", in June 2008 via Spiralchords. According to a press release, "The Only Salvation" is "a multifaceted adventure that blends dark rock, metal and industrial elements in a remarkably strong way. Juicy riffs, crunchy synths and huge choruses amalgamate with varied atmospheres which pend between aggressive volcanos ('Dead Eyes', 'New Messiah') and emotional, thoughtful beauty ('Scapegoated & Demonized')."

ARTIFACT is a band from the city of Stavanger on the west coast of Norway, formed in late 2002. The group consists of vocalist Tor Arne Fassotte of THIS NEGATIVE KARMA, guitarist Pål Evensen who programs and writes most of the music, and drummer Svein Harald Kleppe who has played in a number of bands, ranging from black metallers CARPATHIAN FOREST to prog rockers SEA OF DREAMS and MAYAH.
