PANTHEON I: Video Footage From The Studio Posted Online
November 24, 2012
The first in a series of video clips featuring behind-the-scenes footage from the recording sessions for the forthcoming fourth full-length album from Norwegian extreme metallers PANTHEON I can be seen below. The drum tracks for the CD were recorded at Skansen Lydstudio in Trondheim, with Vegar "Vyl" Larsen (KEEP OF KALESSIN, CHTON, live session drums for GORGOROTH) behind the kit in place of the band's drummer, Mads G (THE ALL SEEING I, ZEENON),who is currently unwell.
PANTHEON I have always been known for their fast aggressive sound, which is combined with interludes of sweeping melodies. The new album, which will be called "Adversus", is set to signpost the future direction of the band with a fuller, more complex sound. It was, in fact, in pre-production for some time, with the band deciding to re-work the original tracks so that they would better suit the arrival of former ABSU guitarist Aethyris McKay, who not only contributes on the writing side, but also adds clean vocals that act as a perfect foil to frontman Andre Kvebek's raw style.
As well as Kvebek and McKay, PANTHEON I's lineup includes cellist LiveJulianne, Sagstad (TROLLFEST, SARKOM) on guitars and T.R.S. on bass (1349, DEN SAAKALDTE). It is anticipated that drummer Mads G will continue with the band, and will only be absent for the recording of the new album.
PANTHEON I recently went "old school" and released a tape version of its very first album, "Atrocity Divine", through Silent Scream Records. Limited to 150 copies, the tape's artwork was created by the Norwegian artist Kjell Åge Meland, who has worked with the band on all their releases.
PANTHEON I's next live appearance will take place on October 19 at Seb's Hotel in Hamar, Norway, supported by DJEVELKULT.
