Norna, the new and devastatingly punishing outfit with members from Breach, Ølten and The Old Wind, will release their debut album via Vinter Records this fall. Order At This Location
Hailing from the cold north of Sweden and the epic vastness of the Swizz alps, the band consists of Swedish hardcore pioneer Tomas Liljedahl (Breach, The Old Wind) and Swiss underground troopers Christophe Macquat and Marc Theurillat (Ølten). Formed merely a year ago, the three piece is now ready with their debut recording – a thunderous onslaught of bleak, cold and desperate heaviness. FFO: AMENRA, Neurosis, Primitive Man and all things heavy.
In case you missed it listen to NORNA’s “A Perfect Dark” At INVISIBLE ORANGES At This Location

And NO CLEAN SINGING knows best about “Mother Majestic”Here.
“Just let Norna completely decimate your surroundings for the next six minutes with their new single “Serpent Spine.” Between the crushing music itself and the visually violent music video done by Romain Guélat, “Serpent Spine” is nothing short of audio devastation.” Metal Injection
“Norna’s post-metal-meets-sludge assault boils its acerbic components down to the rusty iron girders that scaffold them, eschewing pretenses in favor of shattering concrete.”Invisible Oranges
“It hits so hard that you might think you’re sitting beneath a pile-driver in operation (…)” No Clean Singing
““The Truther,” an initial single from the yet-untitled long-player, follows suit in that “very heavy” regard, and one will find some commonality with the Euro school of more extreme post-metal, but the atmosphere rings especially harsh here and is all the more satisfying for that. The Obelisk
“(…) a solid sludge hammer that will give you a good idea of what to expect from the full release.” Idioteq.com
