The Commander-In-Chier Management has issued the following:
Norwegian 7 string guitarist/singer/songwriter “The Commander-In-Chief” has been nominated for Best Metal Song 2012, by Hollywood Music in Media Awards, for the title track on her official debut EP “Evolution”.
The EP was produced by Sterling Winfield (Pantera, Hatebreed, Hellyeah) and was released digitally earlier this year on Itunes, Amazon, etc. Ringmaster Reviews saying “She is one of the most impressive emerging artists to badger and implore the ear for attention in a long while” and Tastes like Rock Magazine saying “she sets her 7string Ibanez Falchion aflame with her skills”. In addition to The Chief doing all guitars and vocals, the rhythm section consisted of Jason Bowld (AxeWound) on drums and Andy Saxton (Cry for Silence) on bass.
A limited edition physical copy of the EP was for sale on her very successful PledgeMusic Campaign, which reached 125% of the target, in only 2 months.
Last month Metal Hammer UK featured her as 1 of 10 Modern Guitar Gods, alongside Alexi Laiho and Tosin Abasi. She is currently featured in Metal Hammer Norway, with 2 features in their October issue, and she is on the front page of Firebrand Magazine.
She has been confirmed for HammerFest 2013. On December 15th 2012 she will open up for Lawnmower Deth at The Garage in London.
More live dates and news regarding new songs/releases will be announced very soon.
