IskaldFounding members Simon Larsen and Aage Krekling started up Iskald in early 2005 in Sortland. After their first demo, the ”Northern Twilight” EP was released some months later. It was limited to 400 ex and is now completely sold out. In late 2006 both Simon and Aage moved to Bodø and continued the band activities from there. A temporarily new live line-up was requited and material for their upcoming debut was written.
In march 2007 their debut ”Shades of Misery” was the first album to be released on Indie Recordings ever, resulting in a huge feedback and interest from all over the world. This lead to several live-shows the next months, in which reached its peak with the Inferno Festival 2008.
A couple of months later they traveled to Berlin to record their second full-length album "Revelations of Reckoning Day". This marked a start of a new era in many ways. The album became a success and lead to the first European tour and the legendary show at Hovefestivalen. From that day Ben Hansen – Guitars and Kenneth Henriksen – Bass joined in to complete the live line-up. After several concerts and tours, Kenneth decided to leave the horde in late 2014. Was later replaced by Simon’s brother, Isak Larsen on bass.
But in between tours and live shows they composed the next album, “The Sun I Carried Alone”. It was recorded in the autumn of 2010 in Oslo and Bodø, and was later released in February 2011. This was their third release with Indie Recordings and it led to signing a new contract with them. The album turned out as another milestone and highlights included a Norwegian tour, a 22 days European tour and playing the main stage at Inferno Festival, early 2013.
After that they focused on writing new songs. This eventually resulted in “Nedom og Nord”, which was released in march 2014. This was their third album mixed/mastered by 210 Studios and their fourth release on Indie Recordings. Finally their first LP release was printed as well. A three week european tour with Kampfar and Hate was done in April that same year.
The response was yet again massive and new important steps were made.
Then there would a little break for that “life” that happened. But during this time new material was on the rise, and after weeks and months with intense work they entered their own studio in Bodø July 2017, to record “Innhøstinga”. And this is what followed...
