ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
With a singing drummer, two guitarists and a bass player, the progressive hard rock band Nan Madol from Tønsberg, Norway, produces both a hard hitting and tender melodic soundscape
.
On September 24th, Nan Madol released their first full length album with their own distinct musical identity, drawing inspiration from bands such as Tool and Mastodon. Recorded and mixed by Norwegian rock legend Alex Møklebust (Seigmen, Zeromancer), released on the Naturecord label.

“Feathered Serpent”
The concept album follows a storyline both in music and in lyrics. It depicts the rise and fall of a man with intensions of being a servant of the people, who ends up a dictator and a tyrant. The story is set to a fictive former civilization loosely based on historic references and knowledge of both our own pre- and current history, making the story ever relevant.

Nan Madol
In 2006, blues-rock guitarist and vocalist Kolbjørn Enge packed down his guitars and bought a drum kit. He met rock guitarist Kristian Ring at the Roskilde Festival in Denmark, and they started jamming. In 2007 Kolbjørn met prog-rock guitarist Cristoffer Iversen at Vestfold University College, were they both studied to become teachers. Cristoffer was asked to join in, and soon he brought an insane amount of own material into the mix. All they needed to become a band now was a bass player. Kolbjørn asked his old music high school-buddie and to be brother in law, Pål Isdahl Solberg (also a guitarist) if he wanted to pack down his guitars and join in as a bass player. Luckily he did. The name of the band, and much of the lyrics material was derived from Kolbjørn’s fascination of former civilizations, and especially the author Graham Hancock and his “Quest for the lost civilization”. The way leading to the studio, has consisted in creating their own sound, structuring songs, conceiving the concept idea for the album, and playing live shows whenever possible.
