Double LP, pink and white vinyl! ÅRABROTS`s 9th full-length album Norwegian Gothic sees the band collaborate with Lars Horntveth (Jaga Jazzist), cellist Jo Quail, Tomas Järmyr (Motorpsycho), Anders Moller (Turbonegro, Ulver) and Massimo Pupillo (Zu).

A stellar production by Jaime Gomez Arellano (Black Eyed Peas, Paradise Lost, Hexvessel, Oranssi Pazusu) makes this the quintessential ÅRABROT record, as guitarist and vocalist Kjetil Nernes confirms: "Norwegian Gothic is the culmination of everything Årabrot has done musically the past 10 years.

It is not only the climax of the band so far, but also a good indication of what to come.

It is basically an amalgamation of all of our influences here in the church where we live.

Musically it is inspired by all the albums of our record collection and thematically by the books we have in our shelves.

More specifically it is our special brand of rock'n'roll music mixed with fin-de-siecle decadence, surrealism and even a pinch of old German philosophy to boot." While the 20 years history of the band is a story of change and correlation, it would be too simple to break this creative duality down to the stereotypical dichotomy of the yin and the yang_ and if one attempted to do so, it would turn out to be quite difficult to determine which of these forces would be represented by Karin Park (singer/keys) or Kjetil.

By now ÅRABROT are stronger than ever. The band has collaborated with procuders like Billy Anderson and Steve Albini, and musicians like Ted Parsons (Killing Joke/Swans), Sunn O))))'s Stephen O'Malley, and Kvelertak's Erlend Hjelvik.

They have composed music for silent movies like "Die Niebelungen" and "Doctor Caligari", and have teamed up with The Quietus founder John Doran on his spoken word tour.

Their album "The Gospel" was named "Album of the Year" by The Quietus. FOR FANS OF SWANS, KILLING JOKE, WOVENHAND, CHELSEA WOLFE, THE MELVINS, CAPTAIN BEEFHEART, NINE INCH NAILS
