Stonegard  


This is atypical of the Norwegian scene as well as unusual for a Candlelight signing, as Stonegard fits pretty squarely in the alternative metal world, a genre usually dominated by American bands and not one frequented by the more extreme indie labels. The defining element here are the crooning, post-grunge vocals of Torgrim Torve -- though effective, his style is not the norm for metal bands these days, and occasionally it even seems a bit out of place when combined with some of the heavier tunes here. The guitar work varies between heavier, thrashier fare and a more heavy rock style, while the drumming is even more varied, at times going into hyperspeed mode while at other times taking a more subdued approach. It's interesting and more than a bit unique, though perhaps a tough sell for Candlelight, which might explain why the band's second album was released elsewhere.
