As last time it’s recorded at Conclave & Earshot Studios by Bjørnar Nilsen, who is also the our front man, the album was mastered by Brian Gardner (ISIS, NIN, DAVID BOWIE), and features a guest appearance by ENSLAVED’s Herbrand Larsen on Hammond Organ, as well as special guests on cello, viola and saxophone. “The Bolted Door”, a track from “The Malefactor’s Bloody Register” is now streaming on our MySpace.

“The Malefactor’s Bloody Register” explores the theme of crime and punishment from the perspective of both the criminal and the hangman, and once again we have been lucky enough to persuade Helge Jordal, one of Norway’s most renowned character actors to appear on the cover of the album. Jordal had agreed to be featured in the artwork for “The Dystopia Journals” after listening to the album, and his collaboration with the band continues with “The Malefactor’s Bloody Register”, for which he takes on the role of the Hangman, and is photographed in brandishing a law-book and clutching a noose.
