Anyone else got our debut album yet?
Don't forget to tag us if you post your thoughts about it :)
 
Where have I been lately, you ask?  Well, on a whim, I picked up the debut album from Norwegian cybermetal act +Sphere -- and that's where I've been since.

This stuff is fucking incredible.  It's the most brutal cybermetal I've heard since +Synthetic Breed's Perpetual Motion Machine album; the vocals are screechy, guttural black-metal-style screams, and even the clean vocals (which are sparsely used, but every so often poke their head in) are throaty and frequently hit some very high notes.  All of this translates to cyber heaven for yours truly.

They're not as complex and time-signature-happy as Synthetic Breed or The Interbeing, but they make up for that with one of those impossibly downtuned guitar sounds, some killer vocal production and motherfucking speed.  Just listen to the intro of my favorite track, "Servitor."  Oh, and stick around for the Gregorian ghostly chants near the end!

We need your help!

As you might know we are among 20 other bands in the running to get a spot at this year's Euroblast Festival in Germany. But, in order to make this happen we need YOU to vote for us, and to spread the word as much as you can!
Voting will end monday, so there isn't much time.
Euroblast might be the single most important festival for our kind of music, and if we make this it might be a gamechanger, so we would really appriciate every vote we can get.

Modern Metal
Introduction
Sphere is a metal band playing technical, modern metal with challenging rhythms and melodic choruses. It was formed late summer of 2012 where the focus was to gather band members that had the skills to play complex music, but also a dedication, willingness and availability to work hard to reach the band’s goals. During the autumn the band recorded their first album, ‘Primordial’, at Strand Studio. During the winter the band has focused on rehearsals to be able to sound as close to the record as possible, and getting ready for concerts and tours. The time has also been used to work close with Erik Burton Kirchner Art (US) to form the artwork for the album.

The music is characterized by the low notes from the 8-string guitars and 6-string bass in combination with complex rhythm figures with a high degree of variations that really challenges the mind. The vocals are a mixture of growling and singing, creating variations in the songs that makes the listening more easy and interesting. 

Band members:

Isak L. Haugan - Main vocals
Isak’s vocals has a characteristic and powerful, growling sound. He varies the pitch a lot to emphasize the music and to enhance the clean vocal parts. He is also the lead vocals in the band Loga.

Marius Strand - Guitars/Vocals
Marius is a multi talented musician, playing several instruments. He makes his living running a record studio, Strand Studio, where most of the local metal bands in Oslo are recording their demos and records. Marius has previously played in Black Commedy.

Michael Hebo - Guitars
Michael, a talented guitarist, is a big hit on YouTube where he has created several play-along videos where he covers band like Meshuggah, Periphery, Tesseract etc. His channel has millions of views, and he has a lot of fans following his posts. 

Øystein Sundsbø - Bass
Øystein has been playing bass since the age of 13, and gets extra attention from the audience when he pulls out his monstrous 6 string fretless that reaches almost an octave below an ordinary bass guitar. Øystein also play bass for Vanishing Void and has played in many bands in the past in different genres. 

Bjørn Dugstad Rønnow - Drums
Bjørn is a very skilled drummer who is frequently used as a session musician. He has toured with many bands throughout Europe. He is fast and agile and has a good musical understanding growing up with parents being professional musicians. Among the bands that Bjørn has played with are Black Commedy, Trail of Tears and Sevenfield.
