Hey guys !! I'm a sax player (mainly).  Go back 5 years or so and I was gigging 5 nights a week in different residencies, improvising with various singer/guitarists.  Nowadays it has wound down rather and I do the occasional such duo gig plus a few in an 8-pc function band, but mainly do live sound mixing at a local venue. My main love is improvising in a jazz-ish/rock-ish non-vocal environment, but you don't get many of that sort of gig !!  Have loads of midi recording gear lying around which doesn't get much attention paid to it these days either, what with all the time at the SIM !!!

Nice to hear there are some other musos out there :)

Not many gigs indeed - but it is such a blast whenever you get a chance to improvise.

This week we released our debut album, "Gaimald", with Nårdegaist. It can be found on Spotify and download pages like Google Play and iTunes.

Here is a sample song, Haugklint, on Youtube.

Sabbath -- I had a listen to the sample song on youtube -- thanks for linking :)

I have to admit that until I had do sound-mixing for a 3-day festival of black/death metal 3 years ago I had trouble relating to the genre -- mainly due to the vocal style, I think -- but after that gig I kinda developed an affection for everything it encompasses !! Certainly the instrumental musicianship was almost always excellent.

In this spirit, I enjoyed your sample track -- I only listened on fairly small speakers but the production seems top-notch -- and I also like the way the Nårdegaist name is presented on the album cover -- this sort of semi-palindromic graphic also appears part of the genre :)

Hope it does well for you :)

Coming from a family of refugees, I thank you for what you're doing. My heart breaks for what's happening to them and their country. I also enjoyed your sample track and hope you guys succeed with it.

My family fled Romania in the 80s. My parents fled when I was 4 through immigrant camps in Turkey and Italy. They came to the US legally, they were sponsored by a church but it took a while until they obtained that sponsorship. I didn't see them again until I was 7 when I came here. My heart really goes out to refugees.

Here's a picture of me arriving at JFK airport. I didn't recognize my mom so the gentleman in blue who escorted me from the plane, was checking her paperwork to make sure she really was my mom.

It takes some effort to getting into all kind of extreme music. I listened to the extreme ones in the first half of the 80's, but then I got lost in the non-extreme scene. It wasn't until the mid 90's I started to get into it again, and even though I had once been on the dark side it took some years to get back into the right mindset. :-) Thanks for listening!

(On Spotify we are actually doing great in the USA - it is our second country in the stats.)
