The Norwegian rockers, Tripod, find themselves in between the two worlds of stoner metal and grunge rock, making them twice as soothing to take in. Groovy and catchy riffs, with amazing vocals. With killer live performances, heavy drums and a rumbling bass, the quintet is trying to take back the raw purity that once existed.
Since the release of their debut album “Nevermind This Black Album” in 2008, including hits like “Another Monday” and “Tomorrow”, the band has been delivering their massive sound to the masses. After touring Norway, they started working on their second album. The album “Four Coins”(2012) was released in China, as well as Norway. Mixed by legendary producer Beau Hill (Alice Cooper, Ratt, Warrant and more). “Catchy tunes that rocks your balls off!” (“Four Coins”: 7/10) – Icon Music Mag “With the song “Jack and Blood” Tripod manages to bring back Kurt Cobain from the grave!” “Efficient and well played” –Firdaposten “Amazing songs, which they exploit to the max in their live performances.” -IMM.
After touring Norway and China with “Four Coins” they started once again to work on songs for their next album. The summer of 2013 Tripod recorded a new album in legendary Sono Records, outside of Prague, Czech Republic. This was the first album to include new guitar player Jørgen Berg (ex-Torch). The album also featured Apollon Quartet (members from Prague Philharmonic Orchestra) and Norwegian solo artist Martine Rygvold. The album was released in 2014. Tripod’s sound is now even more massive than before. Heavier! Rougher! Keeping the purity of 90’s grunge and metal intact.
