    Elitist is happy to announce a collaboration with US based The End records for the soon to be recorded FRANTIC BLEEP album. Elitist will release the album in all European territories.

    Frantic Bleep from Norway was founded in November 2001 by Patrick Scantlebury (Guitars, synth), Øyvind Sundstrøm (Guitars) and Karl Arthur Renstrøm (Drums). The band wanted to combine their inspirations together and yet concentrate on a path that is their own and uniquely distinctive.

    The group immediately started to write music, and in November 2002 they recorded four songs for their first (and only) demo CD called "Fluctuadmission". During the recording Paul Mozart Bjørke (Vocals, Bass) joined the group as a studio member.

    Describing the music of Frantic Bleep is not an easy task, as they mix a lot of influences with considerable creativity and a strong sense of melody while still retaining a high level of heaviness. Originality is a very important factor for the band and their strife for dynamic/experimental song writing, will ensure no two songs would sound alike. Still, music does remain focused and chaos never takes control. References abound but in general terms it can be loosely described as an avant-garde mix of Cynic, Arcturus, Death and Borknagar.

    Although a first demo, the sound on "Fluctuadmission" was tight, elaborate and mature and was received with admirable excitement by both the press and fans alike.

    The band is currently finishing the songs for their debut album to be recorded later in 2003 and to be released early in 2004.

    FARMAKON release their debut album "A Warm Glimpse" on August 4th. It's already getting some great reviews in the press, with quotes such as:

    "Fans of Ephel Duath, Make Patton and off-kilter ideas should investigate without hesitation. One of the metal surprises of the year so far" - ROCK SOUND MAGAZINE

    "this is a fine album, with many an idea used, and all delivered precisely and cleverly." - RAW NERVE

    ""A Warm Glimpse" is the monster bred by a sex orgy between Opeth and Ephel Duath, and it's really EXCELLENT!" - OBSKURE.COM

    "Buoyant thrash, tasteful acoustics, laid-back jazz, groovy funk, dissonance, ambience... This really is prime Pick n' Mix - a tasty selection of influences put together in a fresh, exciting manner and conveyed with confidence and charisma. What more could you ask for?" - LIVE4METAL.COM
