Two years since the release of their latest studio album Norwegian Symphonic Metal band NERGARD re-appears with a live EP entitled “Live In Kalvåa” which will be released on Friday 14th of April. Being a studio project for ten years and working with the likes of Elize Ryd (Amaranthe) Ralf Scheepers (Primal Fear) among others, band leader Andreas Nergård decided to go for a change. The band resurfaced in 2021 with a steady lineup and the critically acclaimed album “Eternal White” that entered the German charts.
– I knew that we needed to do a live release to properly establish Nergard as a band and take away the focus from the so-called all-star days, Andreas says. – I’m pretty sure we’ll achieve that with this live EP. It is a more coherent sound and identity within the band now that an all-star project can’t provide.
The live recording features six songs from all of their albums.
– I think it was important to include the older material as well as the new. We finally managed to reach the full potential of all the songs. I’m a perfectionist and every album is a learning process, so I always thought the old material could have been done better. Now I’m one hundred percent satisfied. The vocal arrangements are superb and really fits with the band’s singer trio, highlighting their different qualities. Simone Mularoni’s extraordinary punchy mix is also a major factor for the songs to finally reach their full potential. He is really one of a kind and I am extremely happy to have his amazing expertise with us.
