Kari Rueslåtten - Chasing Rivers (Silence Is The Only Sound)
"Chasing Rivers" is the first single from Kari Rueslåttens 7th album "Silence is the Only Sound" which will be released on September 15.
Kari Rueslåtten got several jubileums this year, where ofcourse the big thing is her brand new album. But its also a 20th anniversary for her classic debut soloalbum "Spindelsinn", which was her first step away from the metal sound she created with "The 3rd and the Mortal" in the early 90s. Her unique and natural voice defined in many ways the early stages of female fronted Doom Metal, where the likes of Nightwish and The Gathering was heavily influenced by her work in The 3rd and the Mortal. Kari Rueslåtten has in recent years worked together with both Tuomas (Nightwish) and Anneke van Giersbergen (The Gathering).
Kari's natural talent combined with classical training and roots in the Norwegian folk music tradition has resulted in a voice that is difficult to describe. Her music has been compared with artists like Tori Amos and Kate Bush, maybe not necessarily because the music sounds very similar, but because these are artists who sing with their own distinct voices. Just like Kari Rueslåtten".
This album will be released through Spindelsinn Recordings in co-operation with Aftermath Music.
