Vorbid is a progressive thrash metal band from southern city of Norway, Arendal. Consisting of Michael Eriksen Briggs, Daniel Emanuelsen, Marcus Gullovsen and Jonas Tellefsen. The band was formed in October 2013 and has since it’s inception developed quite a unique style of thrash metal. They mix the riffs and the intensity of thrash with the technique and the melodies from prog rock. They have won several competitions like GBOB Norway (reaching 4th place in the Global Battle of the Bands World Final in May 2016), Massive Destruction, Rytmisk Fabrikk’s talent contest, Wacken Metal Battle and Bloodstock’s Metal 2 the Masses. In August 2016 they released their self-titled EP to critical acclaim. Norskmetal.net gave it 5/6 and heavymetal.no gave it a fantastic 9.5 / 10! Their debut album is soon finished, and the band is gearing up for a early 2018 release date.
The Norwegian old-school thrash outfit Tantara is bringing the genre back to its roots, combining heavy melodies, fast riffs and complex song structures. The band was formed late 2009, when the four members decided it was time for another great thrash wave. All members, inspired by the heavy and thrash metal scene from the 80’s, have given the genre a new, modern edge, while still keeping true to the legacy. Since the release of their debut album “Based On Evil” in 2012, they have shared the stage with bands such as Kreator, Havok, Destruction, and many other great bands. The album was produced by legendary Danish producer Flemming Rasmussen – well-known for his work with Metallica, Morbid Angel and Blind Guardian. The Scandinavian thrashers, known for their aggressive live shows, are currently in the process of releasing their sophomore full-length album, which is set to release in the first half of 2018.
