With just over a month to go until the release of the third full-length album from Norwegian Rockers MONSTEREO, Karisma Records have today released a new single taken from the album. Titled “Wings I: Everlasting Darkness”, the band had this to say about it:
Wings I is the soundtrack of supersonic space travel. A modern take on the 70s progressive rock. With obligatory duelling guitars, rumbling organs, several high pitched vocal tracks and spaced-out-synthezisers. A cacophony of sound culminating in a rock’n roll banger that pushes the pop format to the edge of outer space.
“Wings I: Everlasting Darkness” can be download or streamed from a variety of services at
Lyric video for Wings I: Everlasting Darkness can be seen here:
For over a decade now MONSTEREO’s lineup of Ola Utaaker Segadal on lead vocals and electric guitars, Øyvind Aase Fluge on electric guitars, Jørgen Stangeland Bach on Bass guitar, and Jon Bolstad on Drums have been delighting fans with their energy-filled rock songs.
And, for “In the Hollow of a Wave”, MONSTEREO have used that energy to great effect, producing an album that is filled to the brim with the band’s trademark catchy melodies, heavy riffs and big sound, all of which are seamlessly combined with exploratory instrumental sections that lead the listener towards a euphoric climax.
The sound on “In the Hollow of a Wave”, is far richer, and more broad, than anything the band has come up with before. With the deft use of more keyboards, synths, and a variety of guitars, MONSTEREO have, without a doubt, produced their heaviest album to date, which, according to the band, is filled with “teeth-grinding riffs, big choruses and rock-solid grooves”.
