Bio

Kaizers Orchestra recorded their first EP in 2000. During by:Larm, a Norwegian festival focusing on up-and-coming artists, the band's songs were played frequently on the radio. Kaizers Orchestra's special sound and creative use of instruments was noticed by a small Norwegian indie label.
Their first album, "Ompa til du dør", was released on this small label in September 2001. It was critically acclaimed and became a success, first in Norway, later in Denmark and the Netherlands. The album went double platinum in Norway with 100 000 copies. The album won a Spellemannpris (Norwegian Grammy) for "best rock album", as well as two Alarm-awards. "Ompa til du dør" also made Kaizers Orchestra the highest-selling rock debut to be released in the Norwegian language.
The second album "Evig pint" was released in February 2003. Again the band toured extensively in Norway and got a good grip on the European venue circuit.
The third album, Maestro was released in 2005 on their own label in Norway and by Universal Germany for rest of Europe, taking them from one of the smallest labels to one of the biggest.
Their October 5th and 6th, 2005 performances at Vega in Copenhagen, were recorded for a live DVD, titled "Viva La Vega" released in 2006.
The fourth album was recorded in Berlin, assisted by producer/engineer Mark Howard. The album title was Maskineri and it was released in February 2008 and followed by a major tour.
The band was supposed to only do some touring in 2009, but they decided to make an album just for their core fans. The album titled Våre demoner, consists of surplus material from each of their previous studio albums. This album will only be sold for one week in May 2009.
