Earth Electric is the new exciting brainchild of Rune "Blasphemer" Eriksen. The Norwegian mastermind is known and praised for his stylistically diverse output within a mostly metal framework, which includes highly acclaimed compositions for Mayhem, Aura Noir, Ava Inferi and Twilight of the Gods. With their debut album Vol.1: Solar, Earth Electric turn out to be a quite different beast again. Eriksen is drawing heavily from classic rock influences including such giants as Deep Purple, Black Sabbath and Pink Floyd. Those roots are rather hinted at than clearly visible and the Nordic track-smith has always made sure to hammer them into an individual shape of his own twisted liking. Vol.1: Solar was mainly recorded at Orgone Studio under the direction of acclaimed producer Jaime Gomez Arellano (Ghost, Solstafir, Primordial).
