The 3rd Attempt inks deal with Dark Essence Records

The 3rd Attempt, the new band from former Carpathian Forest guitarists,  inks deal with Dark Essence Records 

When Carpathian Forest guitarists Tchort and BloodPervertor announced last year that they were leaving to set up a new band, they knew that they were leaving behind them the security of  one of the most iconic Norwegian Black Metal bands of all time. They decided to start something completely new and unproven,  at a time when labels are reluctant to go for something unknown and new bands emerge  in their hundreds every week, only to be around for a short while and disappear. But when you have two musicians with the skill and experience of Tchort and BloodPervertor, who have the desire to work in an environment that could motivate them again, it had to happen.  Various labels showed their interest and today the band are pleased to be able to announce that they have inked a deal with one of Norway's foremost labels - Dark Essence Records. 

Commenting on their decision to sign with Dark Essence, the band had this to say: "Dark Essence signalled their interest in the possibility of working together as soon as we announced THE 3rd ATTEMPT, even before they had heard anything,  and they have kept in close touch, actually  making the effort to attend rehearsals and get to know our new members.  In the end, it came down to a decision as to whether we wanted to sign with a large label and, as a new band,  risk disappearing in the depth of their rosters, or whether we wanted to work with a label who was genuinely interested in us as a band, and who would be with us every step of the way, in all aspects.  We also heard many good things about Dark Essence from the musicians already signed to them, so, Dark Essence it is!  We've got a lot of work ahead of us with preparing and rehearsing the new material ready to enter the studio,  and we are excited to see what the future will bring".

Dark Essence Records commented on the signing: "It takes a substantial label to be able to afford to sign a band like CARPATHIAN FOREST,  so when it was announced that Tchort and BloodPervertor were leaving and starting again from scratch with THE 3rd ATTEMPT, we were immediately interested in seeing what direction they would take, and opened a dialogue with them . We already knew what formidable musicians they were and what they were capable of, so Dark  Essence's Kristine Knapskog went along to rehearsals to check out their new material.  She very much liked their enthusiasm and attitude, and their desire to work closely with a label,  and  we are very happy to welcome them to the Dark Essence family ".  

 The 3rd Attempt lineup includes frontman Kaahrl Ødemark (ex- Midnattsvrede, ex-Necrocave) who was selected following online auditions that drew in submissions from all over the world, and drummer Tybalt (Fortid, Den Saakaldte, Ethereal Forest, ex- Heathen Deity, ex-Pantheon I) who was originally going to join the band as session live drummer for an upcoming appearance, but after taking part in rehearsals, it was decided that he would become a full-time member. 

The band's first live  appearance will be at Blastfest, in Bergen,  Norway, on  the 18th February,  on  board the boat "Showline" which will take fans on a 5 hour cruise of Bergen's spectacular fjord,  and which kicks off the 4 day festival. 

The 3rd Attempt recently released a demo track The Beast Within, which also features Carpathian Forests's Daniel Vrangsinn on bass and Anders Kobro on drums, and which was  used in a shortened form for the vocalist auditions.  It is not a "finished"  track.  It can be heard on the band's SoundCloud page at:
