We are pleased to announce that Norna has joined the Doomstar Bookings roster! For booking inquiries please get in touch with email@example.com.
Norna is a new band with members from Switzerland and Sweden with Tomas Liljedahl (ex Breach, The Old wind), Christophe Macquat (Olten) and Marc Theurillat (Olten). Chris wanted to create a new project in parallel to his band Olten and with a specific singer in mind: Tomas Liljedahl.
The band states: “The sound we are going for is pure ugliness, vile and extremely unpleasant tones with a breeze of melancholy. Scaled, cold and raw as a 3 piece band.”
Fans of post-hardcore who are of a certain age seem to be highly attuned when it comes to keeping tabs on their favourite musicians from the ‘90s and ‘00s. The merest whiff of a new project or a reunion is cause enough to dig out the 7” collection and start reminiscing.
So to hear the unmistakable howl of Tomas Liljedahl is always a delight – but don’t be fooled into thinking that Norna is a band relying on nostalgia. Yes, those vocals are unmistakably acerbic but Norna’s overall sound is one that is shot through with the kind of nihilistic vigour that can only be conjured up by those that really mean it; there’s no phoning it in here. With Christophe Macquat and Marc Theurillat on board, Norna are a formidable force.
