Kari Rueslatten To The North on LP
In 2014, Kari Rueslåtten celebrated 20 years in music by releasing the brand new studio album Time to Tell – after an 8 years break from music – and summed up her solo career to date by releasing a Collection of songs compiled from all her albums. Now, in 2015, she returns once again with her sixth studio album To The North.
Kari was one of the founding members of the progressive doom metal band The 3rd and the Mortal. The band was a source of inspiration for many other groups worldwide, among them Nightwish and The Gathering. After leaving The 3rd and the Mortal in 1995 she has released six solo studio albums, and one Collection. She took a break from music in 2005. What made her start making music again?
She explains, "What really triggered me to start making music again were all the kind messages I got from fans around the world asking me when new music would surface. I am most humble and grateful to find that there are people out there who have followed my music since my early beginning, back in The 3rd and the Mortal-days, and through all my solo-albums."
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.
Let Kari take you on an exciting journey through many different aspects of life on To The North, bound together wonderfully with her beautiful dynamics and amazing voice.
