SUSPERIA Drummer To Return For Oslo Show

September 18, 2007

Norwegian melodic thrashers SUSPERIA have announced details of a one-off show at John Dee in Oslo on October 2. The concert sees the return to live action of the band's drummer Tjodalv, who broke his ankle earlier this year, forcing him to miss the group's European and UK tours with W.A.S.P. and ONSLAUGHT. Now fully recovered, Tjodalv is eager to get back into live action, saying, "It's been a frustrating time having to take things easy and wait for the natural recovery process to do it's thing. When the accident happened it was like my whole world had collapsed. It was a real disappointment to miss out on the tour with W.A.S.P. and watch from the outside. But now I'm fully recovered, I feel stronger and I'm ready to make up for lost time."

SUSPERIA released its fourth studio album, "Cut from Stone", earlier this year, through the Tabu label in Europe and Candlelight Records in the USA. It entered the Norwegian chart at position No. 18 and was the No. 1 most added album on the influential CMJ Loud Rock and FMQB radio charts in the U.S.

"Cut from Stone" was recorded at Strand Studio, Oslo, Norway during 2006. The mix was completed by Daniel Bergstrand (IN FLAMES, MESHUGGAH, SOILWORK) at Dug-Out Studios in Uppsala, Sweden, while the production was handled by SUSPERIA and Marius Strand.
