THUNDRA was formed as a project between Harald (ex- Enslaved), Stein
(ex-Einherjer) and Nils (synth) in 1998. When Harald and Stein left their former
bands, THUNDRA recruited Rune (on guitar), Steven (on vocals) and Thor Erik
(guitar and vocals) to complete the band. THUNDRA released the well-reviewed
album "Blood of your soul" on Spinefarm records in 2000. In 2003 they left
Spinefarm and started working on new songs and a new sound in general. During
2003 they recorded a 3-track demo at Black Dimension Studio
produced..engineered..mixed and mastered by Stein Sund.
In late 2004, THUNDRA
began working on the new album, "Worshipped By Chaos" at Black Dimension Studio.
After months with hard work, THUNDRA completed the album in early 2005. Again
Stein Sund did the production, this time together with Thor Erik Helgesen.
"Worshipped By Chaos" was a totally different album than the debut. Itâ€™s darker,
more complex and more extreme album with a killer sound. In late 2005, after
some ups and downs including some bad judgement calls regarding new label,
THUNDRA inked a deal with Black Lotus Records which at the time was a growing
label however Black Lotus Records went belly up due to bankruptcy. So again the
band was without a record deal, however this time the band took its time to
focus on the music and concert activities.
The band did some touring, festivals
and concerts, plus a contribution for a compilation album issued by Karm?¸ygeddon
Metal Festival before they started working on new material. The band was
contacted by several labels but the band took its time to make sure that
situations like previous label signings did not happen again.The band focused on
the new material and the writing process. At the end of the summer of 2008 Thor
Erik decided to leave Thundra to be able to focus on his family, and to put his
main musical focus on his brainchild Throne Of Katarsis. There are no bad
feelings in this parting of ways, and we are still great friends. Harald is also
a part of the Karm?¸ygeddon Metal festival in Norway and it was during the
preparations for a concert organized between Karm?¸ygeddon Metal Festival and
Einheit Productions, the band got in touch with Einheit Productions.
label manager Olaf from previous contact and know he is a great Thundra fan, and
as the feedback from friends already signed on Einheit Productions were all
positive we knew we had found our collaboration partner for further
development.So with new material ready and some pre-production done a dialog
started between the Thundra camp and Einheit Productions, and January of 2009
the deal was sealed. So now we are really looking forward to work with Olaf and
his comrades in arms at Einheit Productions So now the road has finally opened
up for a new release by Thundra!
