Årabrot – The Gospel
Årabrot is a Norwegian noise-rock band established in 2001, originally from Haugesund, but with a current creative base in Djura and the Oslo-based record label Fysisk Format.
The album you have in front of you is a collection of the music and lyrics written while undergoing surgery, treament and recovery. In Nernes’ own words:
“The theme of the Gospel is a vision of the lonely warrior on a summit looking out over a battle field, the smoke from the bomb craters, an all-encompassing silence. The war was against one self; against the ugliness, against the sickness. You sink to the bottom of the sea. All of a sudden you are back on the surface again, stupefied. And hungry! A wicked hunger for everything human life has to offer: Sex! War! Drugs! You breathe, but but not like before. “The man who has been in hell, never forget”” (source: bandcamp.com)
