DJERV Announces Touring Lineup

Guitarist Stamos Koliousis (MENCEA) and bassist Victor Brandt (TOTALT JÄVLA MÖRKER, ENTOMBED, SATYRICON) have joined the touring lineup of DJERV, the Norwegian band featuring singer Agnete Kjølsrud of ANIMAL ALPHA, drummer Erlend Gjerde of STONEGARD and WARDRUNA and guitarist Stian Kårstad of TRELLDOM.

Commented DJERV in a statement: "Finding the right people to complete the live lineup was not an easy task, but we are very happy with the result.

"[We] have been a fan of Stamos' guitar work since the very first MENCEA demo [we] heard some six years ago. His playing is so groovy, yet with that all distinct metal attack ! And now, after several failed attempts, we are going to be on stage together."

"[We] first noticed Victor when he performed with SATYRICON at the Inferno Festival '08. His performance was simply amazing. Both playing and his stage presence was at the highest level, so when he got in touch for the gig we knew we had our guy."

DJERV is a new act exploring the borderlines between rock, metal and black metal — with its members consciously pulling threads of their former bands into the new project. The overall sound is stripped down, groove-oriented and melodic, yet with cold black metal-influenced riffs accompanying the dark moods of the music .
