MADS CHRISTENSEN - To Release Debut Album In July, Album Trailer Out Now

Norwegian dark rock-punkers Mads Christensen will release on the 9th of July via Edged Circle Productions their debut album entitled 5212 Helvete. Featuring members who have a long history in the Norwegian music scene with bands like Blood Command and Pybanen, Mads Christensen is a dark spark of rock 'n' roll aesthetics shot through with the energy and urgency of punk. Their sound is moody but always moving, jabbing and feinting, offering twists at every turn yet somehow sounding like the same band each step of the way. Not for nothing is their debut album titled 5212 Helvete: indeed is this the address of a very real - and very surreal - place, and getting there is its own reward. Or its own damnation...Mads Christensen leaves it up to you.

"We wanted to make some hard and raw songs that would be cool to listen to while you're high", the band state, most accurately and pithily. "No triggered drums and no click-tracks, and one take to keep it spontaneous."

Whatever you want to call Mads Christensen in general and 5212 Helvete in particular, there's no arguing with its swift and sweeping sense of devilish fun. The Devil may not care and nor do they, but here do you have eight anthems-in-the-waiting as you begin the journey to namesake destination. Check out the recently released album trailer below. Link
