Recently released debut album available from Rune Grammofon.

Press information: Superb debut from ”young veterans” of the Norwegian heavy and progressive scenes, fronted by singer, guitarist, writer and producer Ole Petter Andreassen. This is classic, heavy, guitardriven and melodic progressive rock in the region of Deep Purple, Rush, Opeth and Mastodon. The playing and production is top notch with a perfect mix of  solid riffs, intricate instrumental passages and great hooks. The core of the band, apart from Andreassen, is Hedvig Mollestad on guitar and Hammond organ and brothers Brynjar and Haavard Takle Ohr from El Cuero on lead guitar and drums respectively. Guests are Nikolai Hængsle Eilertsen from Elephant9 on bass, Ståle Storløkken from Elephant9 and Supersilent on Hammond, Mikael Lindquist on Hammond and Mellotron and veteran Jon Eberson on guitar.

Review by Norway's largest newspaper VG: Prog-phantasmagoria. Where Ole Petter Andreassen's wildest prog rock fantasies unfold. El Doom & The Born Electric beats like Mastodon, meanders like King Crimson and plays guitar solos like Steve Hillage. They also have, uniquely in prog, a genuine girl on guitar and organs: Hedvig Mollestad Thomassen. An infernal show of hard rock riffs, bluesy vocals, constantly surprising and headphone friendly: Only people with limited imagination need fear this. Yeah, plus the still more retro-active Opeth, of course. There are new virtouses in town.

Sound clips can be found here.

a band i saw today and bought a album and they strike me as strictly heavy prog, with sludge rock elements, but closer to the PT then Mastodon in the heavy realm  but they should be regarded with interest from the heavy team  (also less heavy then Haken) stil progressive though

 ^ well he can't be in two bands on PA at the same time, and it means both bands will have to be stricken from the Archives.  It's too bad.




I'm kidding.
