STONEGARD @ Indie
FROM DUSK TILL DOOM (EUROPEAN EDITION) – OUT ON SEPTEMBER 1ST 2008
Indie Recordings is proud to announce the signing of Norwegian metallers, Stonegard.
Having been a well-kept Scandinavian secret, we are proud to finally give Stonegard their proper European debut! Stonegard have spent their first years in Scandinavia touring heavily and opening for mastodons like Black Sabbath, Korn, Slipknot, Motorhead and SOAD. When their debut "Arrows" came out in 2005 it was by many described as "The best Norwegian metal debut of all times". "Arrows" became a success selling more than 7000 copies in Scandinavia alone. Their second album "From Dusk Till Doom" has so far reached 5000 in Scandinavia and for the European release they have upgraded the album with a new mix, re-recorded guitars and bass and brought in no other than Ted Jensen (Slipknot/ Machine Head) for the mastering. Produced and recorded by Daniel Bergstrand (In Flames/Meshuggah), Mixed by Stamos Koliousis/Vangelis Labrakis (Mencea/Superpsychics) their new record sounds nothing but outstanding. Nine killer, unique and diverse songs – no fillers, no bullshit. The album also includes a bonus CD containing previously unreleased material. Demo-tapes, video-clips etc.
Come November, Stonegard will embark on a monster-tour as special guests to Enslaved. The VERTEBRAE TOUR 08 runs through all of Europe and no doubt close to where you might be.

In a press statement the band comments the signing and the upcoming album:
"It's great to finally get signed to Indie Recordings. We have been looking for a way to work together with this label for quite a while now. Their long experience in exporting Norwegian bands is no doubt what we need at this point in our career. Not to mention they are good friends of ours, and we couldn't be happier with the cooperation."
