Kornmo - Svartisen (CD)
This is an Apollon Records release.
Kornmo (from Trondheim, Norway) is the result of an almost 50-year musical collaboration between Odd-Roar Bakken and Nils Larsen. When their former band, Morild, disbanded in early 2015, the desire to create music together was still strong.
Nils had his head full of ideas, themes and melody lines and a faithful Fender Jazz Bass. Odd-Roar had a room with a home studio, full of guitars and keyboard instruments, even a Moog on top of a Korg organ, as well as an insatiable urge to play. Anton had the technical and digital knowledge needed to operate a home studio and eventually became the one who took care of production and mixing.
Kornmo plays instrumental progressive/symphonic rock with roots in the early 70s, with undertones of folk music and an emphasis on the melodic. Svartisen is Kornmo’s first recorded concept album (back in 2017) and the 2nd to be released by Apollon after the success of the epic Fimbulvinter.
