Norska – Self-Titled Debut Sees 12″ Vinyl Release

Portland, OR doom / sludge titans NORSKA (featuring members of YOB) have unleashed their debut release  via Brutal Panda Records.  The 5 song, 40 minute eponymous debut was recorded by Adam Bradley Pike (BLACK ELK, RED FANG) at Toadhouse Studios in the band’s hometown.  Mixing heavy, meditative riffs and a thundering rhythm section with psychedelic flourishes, NORSKA prove they are true masters of their craft.  The full album is currently available for streaming via NORSKA’s official Bandcamp page and is available for purchase here.

In addition, the band has lined up a September tour with the mighty YOB, who also share bassist Aaron Rieseberg.  A complete listing of dates is listed below including select shows with SAINT VITUS, WEEDEATER, RWAKE, ACID KING & CORMORANT.
