Anfinnsaas is a duo that was formed by Knut Finsaas and Geir Anfinn Halland Johansen in 2013, in the middle of Norway. 
 
Their self-titled debut album, coming in the autumn of 2015, is an earth-shattering blend of Nordic traditional music and Metal. Taking their main inspiration from traditional Nordic tunes, Anfinnsaas wanted to have a fresh and new sound that differs from prevalent contemporary Metal sounds. The duo format gives the band room to explore new ways of playing and incorporating different soundscapes, as well as allowing them the freedom to indulge in an over-the-top chaotic style, showcasing their virtuosity on their instruments, without heading into self-indulgence.
 
Producing a fresh and terrifying sonic assault that resonates from the depths of the earth, the band like to offer a hint of melody, only to quickly demolish it with an avalanche of buzzing guitars and thunderous drums. 
 
An audio apocalypse.
 
Presented in a vinyl replica gatefold sleeve.
