19/1/2009: TV killed the radio star!

Ted Winters and Don Fist will appear on Oslo-TV today (17:30)! Apparently, there will be a "video podcast" available afterwards, I will post the link.
And this is not all, because the two will also be part of NRK Lydverket today, which starts at 18:00. You can listen to Lydverket on the web radio or download the podcast afterwards.
Tomorrow, they will appear on Radio Tango. There is no podcast, but a webstream that you can listen to. The show starts at 15.00.
More dates to come!

Update: Here's the link to the Lydverket podcast - a nice interview, plus the full version of "Slukk Meg (For Eg Brenner)"! Skambankt come on after about 16 minutes. The video from Oslo-TV isn't online yet, so check back tomorrow. And don't forget Radio Tango tomorrow at 3:00 pm, there will be no download afterwards!

17/1/2009: Translations and support!

Here's the translation of the album review from Norsk på norsk.
Also, I uploaded the lyrics and translation of Vår Bør, and if you scroll down you will also find those parts of Trygge Rammer and Slukk Meg (For Eg Brenner) that were played on the radio. If you spot any errors in the lyrics or translations, please let me know!
Skambankt have revealed some support acts for their upcoming tour. Kvelertak will join them in Bergen, Haugesund, Grimstad, Kristiansand, Oslo, Hamar, and Drammen, and in Stavanger, Svenssen will warm up for Skambankt.

17/1/2009: Review - and songs!

Skambankt pointed out (translation) that "Hardt Regn" was reviewed on NRK's Norsk på norsk. The review is very positive - the only criticism is that the production is maybe a bit weak, which is a common problem if a band also produces its own album. Apart from that, we can expect catchy riffs, the same power and pressure that the band exhibits live and a sound that reminds a bit of classic rock like Aerosmith and AC/DC. You can listen to the podcast of the program here; the Skambankt review starts after about 36:30 minutes.
And apart from the album review, you can also hear some new songs in the podcast! Namely the full opening song "Vår Bør" and the beginning of both "Trygge Rammer" and "Slukk Meg (For Eg Brenner)". So check it out!

Update: Thanks to Fredric D., here's the transcript of the review! I'll try to put up a translation soon.

16/1/2009: Oh sorry!

You can now watch the video for "O Dessverre" online on - check it out!
And here is the corresponding newspaper article, I'll put up a translation tonight.

Update: Here's the translation of the article from VG Nett. Aftenbladet posted a similar article, where (amongst other things) Ted Winters reveals that most probably, this will be the only video for "Hardt Regn". (Let me know if you want a complete translation of the article!)
Also on, there will be a question time with Skambankt the upcoming Thursday, January 22. You can send in your questions for Skambankt now already!

14/1/2009: Another concert!
