Norway v Great Britain

This Friday, 7th November – Life Café, Manchester. With special guests Gone Til Winter, Rapid Pig and Narcissus. Doors 8pm.


Do you remember World War III? No? Of course not, it hasn’t happened yet…but it’s about to. Invading from Norway are the Viking marauders KITE bringing rock mayhem and metallic crunchy bars to back them up. It’s a square up. A one on one. Norway v Great Britain.

Combining the darkest riffs with the sweetest melodies, head banging long hair is back – not Darkness style but with barefaced honesty. This is a return for one of the hardest working bands in Norway to the shores of the UK after spending the previous few months careering around Europe in a less than haphazard fashion. Touring dates have included trips to Barcelona, various cities in Germany and of course the home tour of Norway.

Influenced by the obvious suspects such as Metallica and Iron Maiden, Kite’s quirky take on metal involves some progressive build ups and tight as your ass production. Leaning away from nu-metal pretenders, infectious tunes dominate this sonic landscape.

Have a look at this for a review –

“Etter bare få sekunder viser Kite til fulle et særpreg med gode melodier, god vokal og elegante overganger og variasjoner. Dette er noe av det aller beste jeg har hørt innen denne musikksjangeren på lenge! Begge låtene på singel #1 står til en sikker femmer, og hvis de tre neste singlene er like sterke, vil
kite rage blant de aller beste innen sin sjanger – det blir spennende å følge dem fremover.”
( Norwegian Newspaper Glomdalen)
