THE 3rd ATTEMPT - Inks A Deal With Dark Essence Records

When Carpathian Forest guitarists Tchort and BloodPervertor announced last year that they were leaving to set up a new band, The 3rd Attempt, they knew that they were leaving behind them the security of one of the most iconic Norwegian black metal bands of all time, and one with a huge following, to start something completely new and unproven, at a time when labels are reluctant to dip their toes into uncharted territories and new bands emerge in their hundreds every week, only to disappear into nothingness. But when you have two musicians with the skill and experience of Tchort (Green Carnation, ex-Carpathian Forest, ex-Emperor, ex-Blood Red Throne) and BloodPervertor (Apostasy, ex-Carpathian Forest, ex-Neongod) who have the desire to work in an environment that could re-ignite the enthusiasm and creativity they felt they had lost, then a move was inevitable. Interest from various labels was certainly not slow in materialising and today the band are pleased to be able to announce that they have inked a deal with one of Norway's foremost labels, Dark Essence Records.
Commenting on their decision to sign with Dark Essence, the band had this to say: "Dark Essence signalled their interest in the possibility of working together as soon as we announced The 3rd Attempt, even before they had heard anything, and they have kept in close touch, actually making the effort to attend rehearsals and get to know our new members. In the end, it came down to a decision as to whether we wanted to sign with a large label and, as a new band, risk disappearing in the depth of their rosters, or whether we wanted to work with a label who was genuinely interested in us as a band, and who would be with us every step of the way, in all aspects. We also heard many good things about Dark Essence from the musicians already signed to them, so, Dark Essence it is! We've got a lot of work ahead of us with preparing and rehearsing the new material ready to enter the studio, and we are excited to see what the future will bring".
Dark Essence Records commented on the signing: "It takes a substantial label to be able to afford to sign a band like Carpathian Forest, so when it was announced that Tchort and BloodPervertor were leaving and starting again from scratch with The 3rd Attempt, we were immediately interested in seeing what direction they would take, and opened a dialogue with them. We already knew what formidable musicians they were and what they were capable of, so Dark  Essence's Kristine Knapskog went along to rehearsals to check out their new material. She very much liked their enthusiasm and attitude, and their desire to work closely with a label and we are very happy to welcome them to the Dark Essence family." Link
