Norwegian metallers SHRAPHEAD's debut album "Blind & Seduced" is available now on Metalville Records. The band recently finished work on a video for their song "Merry Go Round," a tribute to the MMA fighter Joachim 'Hellboy' Hansen from Norway
SHRAPHEAD started up in August of 2004 in Eidskog, Norway. The band was put together by two local musicians, Mohamed Dyani and William Fossheim, who were interested in jamming and making music. Later that year singer Jo Johnsrud and guitarist Robert Olsen joined the band. They would soon be introduced to the Norwegian live scene and played many gigs across Norway. They also recorded their "Ageless" EP and other various demos at this time. In 2006 SHRAPHEAD embarked on a small Norwegian tour with another band called Cortez. The response was great, so they decided that this was something they wanted to fully commit to. Shortly thereafter a small underground fan base emerged and it pushed the members to continue to work hard with their own style of melodic, modern thrash-inspired metal.
2011 brings about the release of SHRAPHEAD's debut album "Blind & Seduced". It was recorded in Hamar with Christian Liljan and Fredrik Ryberg and mixed and mastered by Daniel Bergstrand in Uppsala. The inspiration for the title comes from society, about how you as a child are exposed to such an indoctrination of false information about life and death. The album has 13 tracks, including a ballad and an instrumental. With "Blind & Seduced" SHRAPHEAD are ready to make their mark on today's metal scene.
