THE KONSORTIUM Debut Lands On Norwegian Chart

The self-titled debut album from Norway's THE KONSORTIUM has entered the official chart in the band's home country at position No. 96. The effort was made available via Agonia Records as a limited heavy vinyl, digipack CD and a limited fan metal pack CD.

"The Konsortium" was recorded over a one-year period at SOS Studio in Stavanger and Crystal Canyon Studio in Oslo and it features Teloch from MAYHEM and NIDINGR on guitar, and guest vocals by Erlend Hjelvik from KVELERTAK. The CD was mixed by Ashley Stubbert (PEARL JAM, THE WALKABOUTS, THE SUPERSUCKERS, NASHVILLE PUSSY) and was mastered by Tom Kvlsvoll at Strype Audio.

According to a press release, THE KONSORTIUM performs "black metal with various thrash, avant-garde and non-metal influences creating [its] own atmosphere and identity. THE KONSORTIUM features various members. Some of them better and some of them [not as well] known to the metal (but not only) community."
