THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE: “Kosmodome, rising stars in the firmament of Norway’s flourishing prog music scene, will blow minds with their psychedelic, ’60s-coloured prog-rock.
The brainchild of the two Sandvik brothers — Sturle on guitars and vocals and Severin on drums — Kosmodome’s music is riff-based rock with stoner elements, all of which are placed within a progressive universe to great effect. Together, the duo bridge the gap between the explosive drive of bands such as Mastodon with melodic magic and retrospective, clever songwriting.
The band has this to say about the album: “We aim to draw listeners into the Kosmodome in all its diversity. Throughout the album, we dwell in the melodic and the groovy; a baseline for deep dives into massive, heavy soundscapes and spacy atmospheres. Instrumental sections are central to our musical storytelling, further supported by our lyrical themes; introspection and wonder, ruminations on the human condition, and frustrations toward contemporary society. We welcome you to enter the Kosmodome.”
