Biography


Starring present and past members of bands such as Mayhem, Gorgoroth, DHG (Dødheimsgard), 1349 and God Seed, Norway's Nidingr is back with a massive punch of extreme metal! Known for their efficient, yet complex song writing, ravaging dissonant, but at the same time very catchy riffs and breakneck tempos Nidingr are ready to release their new album “Greatest of Deceivers”.

With 'Sorrow Infinite and Darkness', Nidingr have released one of the most interesting albums that has crawled out of the blackened depths of Norway in many a years. – 4,5/5 www.metalcrypt.com

Already back in 1992 Teloch started the then solo-project that eventually would turn into Nidingr. In 1995 Blargh joined in and Nidingr became a reality. Together they recorded numerous demo´s before enlisting singer El.Cpt.Estrella Grasa to their ranks. The trio released the first Nidingr full length in 2005 titled "Sorrow Infinite and Darkness", followed up by their first gig ever supporting Mayhem at the Rockefeller in Oslo. In 2010 Nidinger went on to release "Wolf-Father" featuring Hellhammer from Mayhem on drums. Hellhammer also featured in the live lineup for some shows before Øyvind Myrvoll joined the band.

"Wolf Father" is a lean, mean disc that hits with the quickness of a raiding party and the heft of broadswords. Its six songs always go for the jugular, leaving a solid clubbing any time they fall short. It's a beast worth hunting down as "Wolf Father" has potential as the leader of the blackened death metal pack. – 8,5/10 The Washington times

Early 2012 Nidingr started writing the material for their new album, and after completing the writing process they entered the infamous Crystal Canyon Studios in Oslo, home of renowned Norwegian acts including cult experimentalists Ulver, to accomplish a unique seventies vintage style production for the album. The sound they have created is something very different from what is common in extreme music. It is a totally organic, warm, unedited and un-triggered production that emphasises the great musicianship caught on tape. “Greatest of Deceivers” is produced by Nidingr guitarist Teloch and mixed by Anders
Møller, known for his work with more rock oriented artists like Kitchie Kitchie Ki Me O, Euroboys, 120 Days, Turbonegro etc. The album is mastered by Jaime Gomez Arellano at Orgone Studios.

“Greatest of Deceivers” continues the theme from "Sorrow Infinite and Darkness" (2005) based on Enochian texts. As on the previous album, ten Enochian Æthyrs are evoked through the course of the album. The Cover art for “Greatest of Deceivers” is designed by the renowned Metastazis (Morbid Angel, Paradise Lost, Ulver, Watain, Blut Aus Nord).

“Greatest of Deceivers” is out on Indie Recordings November 20th.
Get ready for a mind-blowing massive punch of extreme metal!
