Norwegian melodic heavy rock band “Big City” have signed with European label Rock Of Angels Records.
Their yet untitled new album + their debut album ‘Wintersleep’ will be released, as a double CD in spring 2018 !
BIG CITY is a melodic heavy rock band from Norway with tons of experience in the music industry. The members have been playing or still play in extreme bands as Satyricon and Blood Red Throne, but also the up and coming prog metal band Withem and many other bands.
The reason for Big City is songwriter Daniel Olaisen and his ideas throughout the last 10 years. He wanted to put his 80’s heavy riffs in a band and find suitable people to join him.
Bandmate, Frank Ørland, also played with Daniel in Scariot (1999-2005, prog/thrash/heavy band featuring Communic members) and was an obvious choice to bring to Big City.
Frank Nordeng Røe (Withem, Marathon, session drummer for Circus Maximus) on drums, was found when searching on internet.
The band was completed with Jan Le Brandt on vocals and Geir Inge Olsen on session bass guitar. The debut album “Wintersleep” was recorded and released in 2013 digitally through Mayhem Music. Big City continued to write material for another album. Miguel Pereira (Withem) was recruited as their new permanent bass player.
