It all started in 2004 already when guitarist Marcus Silver and Ida Haukland founded the band. They signed with a Norwegian label for the release of their
their debut album “Onwards” in Norway during Fall of 2006. “Onwards” was released in the rest of Europe in February 2007 through Plastic Head distribution and also licensed for a release in Asia (November 2006) and the USA (late summer/fall 2007).
“Onwards” received an average of 8,5/10 in the reviews of both the national and the international press, and got their title track included on the prestigious Rock Hard sampler (as well as an article) which featured “the 20 most promising new bands worldwide”.
Furthermore, TRIOSPHERE was voted into the Top 5 “Best Bands of the Year” in both 2006 and 2007, and Top 10 Best Bands of the Year 2008 by the readers of the leading metal magazine in Norway,- Scream Magazine.
TRIOSPHERE again caught the attention of Rock Hard magazine in 2009 when the magazine featured the band as one of the 20 most promising new bands worldwide in their April-issue.
However, the band experienced one of their most humbling moments when they received the award for Metal Album of the Year from the world´s largest independent music organization “Just Plain Folks Music Org.” in the USA, August 2009, in competition with more than 80.000 artists in all genres around the world.
TRIOSPHERE have done two Norwegian tours with the legendary W.A.S.P., 2006 and 2007 respectively, and three European tours:
The first one was in early 2007 with Kotipelto, Chris Caffery, Kamelot, Jorn and W.A.S.P.
The second one was in late 2008 with Jorn, and finally the band recently ended a tour with metal titans Arch Enemy and Destruction.
In addition, TRIOSPHERE have co-headlined Swiss Metal festival “Metal Inferno 2008” together with Threshold and done several Norwegian festivals featuring bands and artists like Sebastian Bach, Mayhem, Evergrey, After Forever, Enslaved, Kamelot, Soilwork, Volbeat, Dimmu Borgir and one-off’s as support for DIO, amongst others.
You can expect TRIOSPHERE to go on tour again with their new record, to walk all roads, more or less travelled…
