THE 3RD ATTEMPT – Presents Debut Track, Reveals Details About Upcoming Release

When, in late 2014, guitarists Tchort and BloodPervertor announced that they were leaving black metal titans Carpathian Forest, to form their own band The 3rd Attempt, there were some who questioned the wisdom of leaving the safety of such an iconic band in order to start something new.  But, less than a year later, on the 25th September, Dark Essence Records is set to release the band's debut full-length album Born in Thorns, which will show just how right the two renowned guitarists were in deciding to leave an environment they felt had become stale and stifling, in order to feel the rush of creativity and enthusiasm once again.  Barely drawing breath after their announcement,  Tchort (Green Carnation, ex- Carpathian Forest, ex- Emperor , ex – Blood Red Throne) and BloodPervertor ( ex- Carpathian Forest) chose Ødemark (ex- Midnattsverde) as their vocalist, following online auditions that elicited responses from both experienced and new vocalists from all over the world.  The line-up was then completed with the addition of drummer Tybalt (of Fordit and Den Saakaldte) whose performance as a session drummer for The 3rd Attempt  this year's Blastfest convinced the others that he was the man for the job. With producer Endre Kirkesola, known for his work with Carpathian Forest, Blood Red Throne, Green Carntion, Urgehal and Tsjuder, The 3rd Attempt entered the Studio Sanden in Kristiansand to record Born in Thorns.  Mixing and mastering was done by Marius Strand at the Strand Studio.  This is an album that showcases the well-known writing skills of the two founders, as well as contributions from the new members, and turns the old-school black metal vibe up several notches by introducing different elements, including rock n roll/black n roll, to produce a unique take on the classic black metal sound, giving it a fresh feeling and a distinctive groove. For a taste of what to expect, you can listen to the first released track "Art Of Domination" below, and you can view the artwork for the forthcoming release, done by Jon Tønnessen and the tracklist beneath it.
