VORBID signs with Indie Recordings
Vorbid is a progressive thrash metal band from southern city of Norway, Arendal, consisting of Michael Eriksen Briggs, Daniel Emanuelsen, Marcus Gullovsen and Jonas Tellefsen. The band was formed in October 2013 and has since it's inception developed quite a unique style of thrash metal. They mix the riffs and the intensity of thrash with the technique and the melodies from prog rock.
The band comments on the singing with Indie Recordings: "We are extremely proud to be signed with Indie Recordings! We are looking forward to our mutual efforts for the world domination", and the front figure of Indie Recordings, Erlend Gjerde, continues: "We`re thrilled to welcome these young and extremely talented musicians to Indie Recordings. Their progressive take on thrash-metal breathe some fresh air into the genre, that is more than welcome. Let`s GO!"
Vorbid has won several competitions like GBOB Norway (reaching 4th place in the Global Battle of the Bands World Final in May 2016), Massive Destruction, Rytmisk Fabrikk's talent contest, Wacken Metal Battle and Bloodstock’s Metal 2 the Masses. In August 2016 they released their self-titled EP to critical acclaim. Norskmetal.net gave it 5/6 and heavymetal.no gave it a fantastic 9.5 / 10!
