THE 3RD ATTEMPT BEGIN WORK ON SOPHOMORE FULL-LENGTH ALBUM. FIRST STUDIO PHOTOS RELEASED

With their debut album “Born in Thorns” having hit the streets on Dark Essence Records in the Autumn of 2015,  Norwegian Black Metallers THE 3rd ATTEMPT entered the Strand Studio in Oslo on the 26th May to begin work on their sophomore full-length album, with a view to it being released towards the end of the year.

THE 3rd ATTEMPT was formed by former CARPATHIAN FOREST guitarists Tchort (GREEN CARNATION, ex-CARPATHIAN FOREST, ex EMPEROR, ex BLOOD RED THRONE) and BloodPervertor (APOSTASY, ex-CARPATHIAN FOREST, ex NEONGOD), who, feeling they had become stale in their roles, quit the iconic band and decided to form a project that would once again ignite their enthusiasm and creativity.  Vocalist Ødemark (ex-MIDNATTSVREDE, ex-NECROCAVE) joined the lineup  following online auditions that saw him beat a plethora of both experienced and new vocalists from all over the world for the role.  Drummer Tybalt (FORTID, DEN SAAKALDTE) whose performance as a live session drummer for THE 3rd ATTEMPT impressed everyone, was quickly added to the lineup on a permanent basis.

Ten songs for the new album have been completed, and the drum tracks have already been recorded by Tybalt, who had this to say about what fans could expect from the new material: ” There’s a lot more going on than on the last album, and it’s much faster.  We are definitely beginning to forge something that is truly our own.  It’s dark, it’s filthy and it’s mofo rock n roll”.

Ødemark, who writes the lyrics for the band gave, an insight into the subject matter: “The new album is about self destruction from an introspective point of view (inside-out), and is not so much about suicide as it is about the need to seek pain, both mental and emotional, in order to develop as a person.   Song by song, a new destructive facet of life is seen, systematically deconstructing each aspect of the human ego.  It’s about evolving through real suffering, and accepting the fact that you are insignificant.  Basically it illustrates how little I care about you.  So, in a nutshell, it’s just about the truth”

THE 3RD ATTEMPT DEBUTS LYRIC VIDEO TO MARK THE RELEASE OF THE BAND’S DEBUT FULL-LENGTH ALBUM

With their debut full-length album “Born in Thorns” newly released, the 3RD ATTEMPT, the new band from former CARPATHIAN FOREST guitarists Tchort (GREEN CARNATION, ex-CARPATHIAN FOREST, ex EMPEROR, ex BLOOD RED THRONE) and BloodPervertor ( ex-CARPATHIAN FOREST) have debuted a lyric video for the track “Sons of the Winter”.  With live footage shot by Svein Erik Nomeland of Artistfoto.no at  the band’s recent appearance at the Southern Discomfort Festival, and with still photography by Anders Berg and Paul Sigakis, the video can be seen below and at https://youtu.be/MUSsV_Ng-4M

The 3rd ATTEMPT was formed  in late 2014, immediately following the announcement by the two guitarists that they were quitting CARPATHIAN FOREST, one of Norway’s most iconic Black Metal bands.  The duo were driven to their decision by a need to work on a project that took them out of an environment where they felt they had been growing stale, and by the desire to once again feel the rush of creativity and enthusiasm they felt had been lacking over the past few years.

Former MIDNATTSVREDE vocalist  Ødemark  joined the band after an internet search that drew applicants from all over the world, both from new and well known bands, and the lineup was completed by drummer Tybalt (FORTID, DEN SAAKALDTE).  After considering a number of offers from various labels, the 3rd ATTEMPT inked a deal with Bergen’s Dark Essence Records which led to the release of “Born in Thorns” on the 25th September of this year,  in both CD and digital formats, with a vinyl edition set to be released in December.

Having already appeared at a number of festivals in Norway, the 3rd ATTEMPT will be joining label-mates TAAKE for a handful of dates on the band’s upcoming European tour and will support NIKLAS KVARFORTH’s SHINING on their Norwegian dates.  Confirmed upcoming live dates as follows:

05 Oct:  Razz 3,  Barcelona, Spain (with TAAKE + ORKAN)
06 Oct:  Caracol,  Madrid, Spain (with TAAKE + ORKAN)
08 Oct:  Glazart,  Paris, France (with TAAKE + ORKAN)
09 Oct:  Underworld,  London , UK (with TAAKE + ORKAN)
26 Nov: The Garage, Bergen, Norway (with SHINING)
27 Nov: Pokalen, Oslo, Norway (with SHINING)
28 Nov: Byker Grave Festival, Newcastle, UK
2016
19 Feb: Blastfest, Bergen, Norway

3RD ATTEMPT DEBUTS TRACK FROM UPCOMING ALBUM. ARTWORK AND DETAILS REVEALED

When, in late 2014, guitarists Tchort and BloodPervertor announced that they were leaving Black Metal titans CARPATHIAN FOREST to form their own band the 3rd ATTEMPT, there were some who questioned the wisdom of leaving the safety of such an iconic band in order to start something new.  But, less than a year later,  on the 25th September,  Dark Essence Records is set to release the band’s debut full-length album “Born in Thorns”, which will show just how right the two renowned guitarists were in deciding to leave an environment they felt had become stale and stifling, in order to feel the rush of creativity and enthusiasm once again.

As a taste of what to expect from “Born in Thorns” the track “Art of Domination” has been debuted today and can be heard below and at https://soundcloud.com/dark-essence-records/3rd-attempt-art-of-domination

Barely drawing breath after their announcement,  Tchort (GREEN CARNATION, ex-CARPATHIAN FOREST, ex EMPEROR, ex BLOOD RED THRONE) and BloodPervertor ( ex-CARPATHIAN FOREST) chose Ødemark (ex-MIDNATTSVREDE) as their vocalist, following online auditions that elicited responses from both experienced and new vocalists from all over the world.  The lineup was then completed with the addition of drummer Tybalt (FORTID, DEN SAAKALDTE) whose performance as a session drummer for the 3rd ATTEMPT at this year’s Blastfest convinced the others that he was the man for the job.

With producer Endre Kirkesola, known for his work with CARPATHIAN FOREST,  BLOOD RED THRONE, GREEN CARNATION, URGEHAL, TSJUDER,  at the helm, the 3rd ATTEMPT entered the Studio Sanden in Kristiansand to record “Born in Thorns”.  Mixing and mastering was done by Marius Strand at the Strand Studio.  This is an album that showcases the well-known writing skills of the two founders,  as well as contributions from the new members, and turns the old-school Black Metal vibe up several notches by introducing different elements, including rock n roll/black n roll, to produce a unique take on the Classic Black Metal sound, giving it a fresh feeling and a distinctive groove.

Artwork for “Born in Thorns” is by Jon Tønnessen and tracklisting on the ten-track album is as follows:

1. Torment Nation
2. Dark Vision
3. Art of Domination
4. We Defy
5. Born in Thorns
6. Beast Within
7. Sons of the Winter
8. Nekrogrammaton
9. Firestorm
10. Anti-Self

The 3rd ATTMEPT will join Dark Essence Records label-mates TAAKE on a European Tour later this year, details to be announced.  Confirmed upcoming shows as follows:

12 Sep:   Southern Discomfort Festival, Kristiansand, Norway
26 Nov:  The Garage, Bergen, Norway (supporting SHINING)
27 Nov:  Pokalen, Oslo, Norway (supporting SHINING)

THE 3RD ATTEMPT STUDIO REPORT – RECORDING VOCALS

Ødemark  came down for a weekend to prepare and record his vocals, and we recorded ten tracks in total.

A different studio location was chosen to record vocals, which were completed in two days with our producer Endre Kirkesola at the helm as always.

After we’d completed recording the vocals we figured we had a good excuse for a  bit of a party which included Kristine from Dark Essence Records.  We played samples from the album, discussed a release schedule, and of course, celebrated with a drink or two.

So there it all is.  The album is recorded and now we have to go through the technical process of mixing and mastering before it’s ready.  It shouldn’t be too much longer before Dark Essence Records and the band can reveal more details about the album and let you hear something from the finished product.  But, without giving too much away about how the album is sounding, below are some videos from the vocal recording sessions, where you can see for yourselves what vocalists have to put their voices through to get the sound just as they want it – it definitely isn’t as easy as just standing in front of the mic and singing once everyone else has done their bit.

THE 3RD ATTEMPT STUDIO REPORT – RECORDING GUITARS AND BASS

Ødemark, Tchort and BloodPervertor Discussing Tactics

After the drums were down on tape, we took a short break from recording so that the producer Endre could do a rough drum mix.

Tchort and BloodPervertor

A guitar and bass studio was rigged and tested at Tchort`s house and Tchort recorded his guitars there, while Bloodpervertor recorded his guitars at Endres house.

Bass was later recorded at Tchort’s after his return from DJ`ing at Incineration Fest in London
