TRINACRIA joiner Indie Recordings
It is with great pride we announce the signing and release date of experimental noise/metal masters TRINACRIA!
TRAVEL NOW JOURNEY INFINITELY – OUT APRIL 14th
Incongruous soundscapes, constantly exhilarating – challenging and highly innovative music preformed by Norway’s finest.
Trinacria takes you across the border and into Neither-Neither land where beauty meets chaos.
Feat. members from Enslaved, Fe-mail & Emmerhoff.
Indie Recordings is proud to present the most groundbreaking Norwegian musical outfit this year.
Trinacria is named after the ancient symbol of an eye enclosed by a pyramid, as shown on the American dollar bill.
The symbol has long been considered a coded emblem of international conspiracy and ties in with the project’s theme of the power of
occult symbolism in the modern world. Trinacria was originally a composition by Ivar Bjørnson (Enslaved), Maja S. K. Ratkje and Hild Sofie Tafjord (both from Fe-mail),
commissioned by Rikskonsertene for a concert series. The line-up was completed by Grutle Kjellson, Ice Dale (both from Enslaved),
Iver Sandøy (Emmerhoff) and Espen Lien. In short: after working together briefly, the composition turned into a vital project which,
after touring became a fully welded band. The hard hitting sounds of cutting edge Norwegian Extreme Metal combined with contemporary Norwegian Noise’s finest makes for a
unique blend. The result outdoes the sum of the products by far – Trinacria represents something unique on the music scene as a whole.
Trinacria is an abstraction in both aspects; musically and conceptually. It is an approximation towards something indefinable along the
lines of “dark”, “occult” and perhaps “beauty & chaos”. It is as pretentious/ unpretentious as you want it to be – love it or hate it; very few
end up in between.
In a press statement the band comments the signing:
”We’re proud to see Trinacria’s debut album make its way out into the world. We couldn’t be more pleased with the framework for this occasion: working the gentlepeople at Indie Recordings is a treat for any recording artist with a taste for communication and mutual respect. The road from what began as a one-off concert to this full-fledged maelstrom of a monster album has been nothing short of fantastic for all seven of us. We’re only curious to see where the Trinacria takes us next!”
