TUSMØRKE – new single out

TUSMØRKE – new single out

With “Hestehoven”, TUSMØRKE ‘s eleventh full-length album,  scheduled for release on the 18th August, Karisma Records have today released a second single from the album. And, in keeping with the mystical tone of “Hestehoven”, the track chosen is “Den behornede guden”,  which translated means “The horned god”, a being about which the band had this to say:

The horned god is the joyous spirit of spring, bursting forth as nature is sprung from the prison of winter. Rejoice in the chorus of praise, a manifold chant of hallelujah for the horned one. Give thanks to the king of the forest, he who puts the wild in wilderness.

“Den behornede guden”  can be downloaded or streamed from a variety of services at:


Named after the flower Coltsfoot,  “Hestehoven” is an album in which TUSMØRKE’s vivid imagination has been allowed to roam even more wildly than ever before.  Seemingly springing from the Underworld both in sound, with its chthonic aspects, as well as in its conceptual undertones, it invites the listener to hum along whilst peering through the keyhole of the local church and witnessing a devil’s pact.

Within  “Hestehoven” the band has created a Bacchanalian realm reminiscent of the erotic mysteries practiced by ancient fertility cults. Satyrs and Nymphs cast away their inhibitions, innocent strangers are sucked into chance encounters with mildew-encrusted adult magazines, whilst Warlocks cackle and witches blush at all the antics,  and only a wise priest, able to see beyond the Lord’s Prayer, is able to bind Old Eric to his bidding.

There is absolutely no turning back once you step into the world of “Hestehoven” and wander down paths that are fraught with danger and temptation, because, as the band says, the album is, simply put:

True Norwegian finger-clicking, butt-swinging, prog rock. No more, no less – but cerebral in excess! Spring has sprung! If it is all too much to bear, close your eyes and think about the flowers. Hail Pan.

Even the artwork for “Hestehoven” has been specially commissioned from the highly acclaimed Norwegian artist Sverre Malling, who has successfully visualised this mystical land.
