Thomas Steen-Larsen

Please welcome aboard Vitam Aeternam and their debut album The Self-Aware Frequency.

This album is special. It caught our attention immediately, and we are sure it will grab yours too. Dumping down unexpectedly in our mailbox, we instantly felt we had something unique in our hands. In a mostly generic music world, which somehow has become a bit dull, we finally discovered a band that pushes borders and develops music into soundscapes not common for human ears. No one does what they do! Even though you can hear and feel a clear and honest influence from the extraordinary cult act DEVIL DOLL (hey, its by purpose, and done with the most significant respect after all), they still sound fresh and original with a certain and special integrity.

Based on feedback from music lovers and press so far, people tend to agree with us. It's not a bold statement, but here we have an album that will be talked about in the years to come.

The release is set for this fall. We will come back with more details about the physical releases, but we can say this: They will be awesome!

While waiting for further details, you can see and hear the first video teaser here.

Infringement - 'Alienism'

Artist: Infringement
Title: Alienism
Catalogno.: 19.0025
Format:
  • Digipak CD
  • Gatefold LP
  • Limited Gatefold LP
  • Digital Download
Release date: 16.11.2019
Genre: Progressive Rock
Country: Norway
BUY:  Buy physical edition.
   Buy digital download.

 

 

After spending the last two years writing, fine-tuning, and recording their next album, Infringement is now ready for the next chapter. Alienism, a large sounding, intense concept album peeks into the mind of patients at the Gentmire Institute, an institution at the forefront of psychiatrical innovation. We get the insights of the commissioner of Lunacy himself, and through his journals, we enter the world of The Alienist. So let us all escape reality and seek comfort in our minds.

Infringement has been described as playing something in between neo-progressive rock and symphonic rock while flirting with various genres throughout their debut album. They touch on big groovy parts with funky rhythms, other times they clearly visit the 70s. A mix of melodious, symphonic rock with unexpected twists and progressive bar changes.

1.   Disorder    7:58   CD1-1   A1

Infringement

 

 

Infringement is a progressive rock band based in Oslo. The band came together on a cold November evening in 2015, when Stig André Clason, Kristoffer Utby, and Hans Andreas Brandal all met for the first time, to drink whiskey and discuss the idea of forming a new band.

In Springtime 2016, Espen Larsen joined the band on bass, and the band had decided to write a concept album, Transition. Released in May of 2017, it follows the development of a local society through the last couple of centuries. Focusing on one family across different generations, seen through the eyes of an anthropomorphic house.

To complete the lineup, Bård Thorstensen joined the band for the live shows and hasn't left since.

Once upon a time, there was a band that stated that «Rock’n’roll all nite, Party every day!» was the mantra in life. Here comes the soundtrack for doing exactly that!

Secret Chapter brings you ten powerful metal songs on their debut album named Chapter One, which will make you want to grab that mic stand and get in on the action.

The album will be released on October 18th, 2019 as a Digipack CD, LP, and Digital Download. It will also be available on all major streaming services, like Spotify, Tidal, etc. The Digipack CD also includes two bonus tracks, and one of them is their take on the legendary TNT song “Everyone’s a Star”.

Co-producing, mixing and mastering has been taken care of by the one and only Andy LaRocque (King Diamond) at Sonic Train Studios.

All members of the band have a big passion for powerful music, and they have all played (or still play) in different groups throughout the years (Withem, Maraton, Wild’n’Wicked, Intruder, etc.). They have also been collaborating with musicians and bands like Ronni Le Tekrø (TNT), Tony Mills (TNT), Mats Levén (Yngwie Malmsteen, Candlemass), Pagan’s Mind, Samantha Fox, and Circus Maximus. And one can hear lots of influences in their music, ranging from Judas Priest and Accept on the one hand to TNT and Queensrÿche on the other, and even some Deep Purple is mixed in there.

Crime Records signs Infringement

Crime Records is excited to announce the signing of Infringement. We will now also focus on ProgRock, and by signing Infringement we take the first step towards just that. And what a fine step that is.

Infringement is now ready to release their second album called Alienism. Working with the band for preparing this and getting all ready have so far been an absolute pleasure.

The release dates for the album are just an average ProgRock song away. It will be made available on all major streaming services on November 1st, and the physical versions will be available on November 16th. Accidentally this latter date collides with Infringement's release concert, where they are playing support for the fantastic act A.C.T in Oslo. Too bad, right? But we'll make it work. ?

For those of you not familiar with Infringement, they have been described as playing something in between neo-progressive rock and symphonic rock, while flirting with various genres throughout their debut album. They touch on big groovy parts with funky rhythms. Other times they clearly visit the 70s. A mix of melodious, symphonic rock with unexpected twists and progressive bar changes.

More information about the album will be posted in the coming weeks, both here and at Infringement's page. So be sure to hit that Like-button over at “their place”.
