SLOWSHIFT is the kind of band that reminds you why you fell in love with music in the first place. Made up of Kristoffer Lo (x-Highasakite, Trondheim Jazz Orchestra), Brynjar Leifsson (Of Monsters and Men), Tomas Järmyr (x-Motorpsycho, Årabrot), and TrondheimSoloists (16-piece string orchestra), their sound is a stunning blend of big, dramatic, energetic, and melodic elements.

With Brynjar's guitar riffs soaring over Kristoffer's compositions and Tomas’s explosive drums, SLOWSHIFT has crafted a sound that's both cinematic and intimate. They're equally at home with sweeping strings as they are with jagged, angular rock riffs.

YODOK III
Dirk Serries - guitars
Kristoffer Lo - tuba/flugabone/fx
Tomas Järmyr - drums
When putting three fine exponents of modern, forward-thinking and experimental music in the same room, the hope is that something a little special is going to be the result. Yodok III are exactly that, all three recognisable by their contribution and yet forced to go beyond that by the other two. Yodok III is primarily a study in avantgarde, but elements of genres as diverse as jazz, (post)rock and even classical can be heard playing their part in this mind-bending tapestry.

Sunswitch

 

Trond Frønes - bass

Kristoffer Lo - tuba/flugabone/fx

Tomas Järmyr - drums



Sunswitch is Kristoffer Lo, Trond Frønes and Tomas Järmyr. Together they have created a three-headed monster that's impossibly impressive. To make things clear: Sunswitch will never be mainstream favourites, but they deserve their reputation as one of the most uncompromising, cacophonous and unique bands out there.

Inspired by sounds such as Sunn O)), Sleep, Earth and Noxagt, Sunswitch will blow you away with their dark post-apocalyptic esthetics and sounds. With a total lack of respect Sunswitch will submerge you into a dark world that'll frighten, overwhelm and ultimately embrace you within itself.

YODOK

 

Tomas Järmyr - drums

Kristoffer Lo - tuba/flugabone/fx



YODOK was formed in 2008 and is based upon the duo of swedish drummer Tomas Järmyr and norwegian tuba player Kristoffer Lo. The duo started out playing modern free jazz but the addition of bigger drums, more electronics and bigger amps changed the sound and dynamic range dramatically. Though it ́s still improvised music, the inspiration now came from doom, noise, sludge and drone music, and bands such as SUNN O))), Cult of Luna, Earth and Fear Falls Burning had a great impact on the evolvement of Yodok.
