Prog Sphere has teamed up with Norwegian metallers Dunderbeist for an exclusive premiere of their new single “Kometen Kom,” taken from the band’s upcoming EP Tvilja out on March 10 via Indie Recordings. Listen to the song below.
About the new tune, the band commented:
Everything orbits. In the everlasting span of repetitions it is easy ending up biting one’s own tail over and over again. Force your doubts into new orbits of impulse by making it doubt itself.
Dunderbeist have just finished recording, mixed and mastered their latest series of releases. It was initially planned as a trilogy dealing with the doubts as a theme, but the chances that they are going to doubt the process is certainly there. The releases will nevertheless bear the form of smaller constellations of songs in an EP format to give the band the opportunity to really give each expression enough time and love while adapting to the contemporary new platforms and consumer-tempo.
Dunderbeist have a desire to let a releasing cycle extend over longer periods thematically, but also have more frequent crossings and more releases. They require of themselves a further sharp refining of their own expression that after 10 years and 8 releases only speak their own dialect parallel with curiosity and willingness to still vary – it is the fundamental driving force behind the musical tour of five Hedmarkers.
The first release in the series will be released on 10 March 2017 , titled Tvilja. The five songs: Kometen kom, Vakum, Tvilja, Terpentine, and Grå gås (isvind) take the theme of doubt in different manners – doubt as a state of mind, doubt the situation, a person or yourself. The doubt as a dichotomous model and progress, as the overall creative force equated with the deepest crippling destructive abyss.
