It's been over twenty years since the world has had the chance to hear new stuff coming from American hardcore crossover act Dirty Rotten Imbeciles, but the band is still going strong. They still play a decent number of gigs and every band member is involved in a D.R.I related job.
Now the announce a new album, or better, a new ep. "Just a handful of songs to test the waters," vocalist Brecht says. "We haven't put out anything new in so long, so we wanted to see how much interest there really is in it. It's more old school hardcore. It's straightforward, without the metal guitar sound.

Ivar Bjørnson (Enslaved) & Einar Selvik (Wardruna)’s newest project Skuggsjá have just released a new video.
Einar Selvik comments: "“The song ‘Skuggsjá’ or ‘The Mirror’ summons the listener to reflect. To ask, look and listen through the eyes and ears of past and present, as individuals first then as people. It´s about how we often timber our collective history on grounds shaped by religious or political agenda rather than reality and how that affects the solidness of its structure.”
The album will be released on March 11th through Season of Mist
