After a while the band had recorded enough songs for another album entitled "Naudr". At this moment some accidents occurred, and all of their recordings seemed lost because of broken hard disc's, and so forth.
Fortunately the recordings were saved. One of the magazines published an article on Nordagust, and shortly after Karisma contacted Nordagust. Then the band did a remix of the album in Karisma's studio. The sound has hints from fellow Skandinavians Anglagard, Anekdoten and Landberk, but the emotional vocals and the omnipresent Mellotron add an own flavour to the music.
About the Mellotron. To be more specific: some of the Mellotron sound is actually made by a Chamberlin, the sounds are very similar, but the Chamberlin sound that we use is a bit more swelling. And the guitars are in a perfect symbiosis with the Tron. Some parts of the music is the result of spontaneous rehearsing, especially Forcing. Some other parts came from moments of inspiration out in the woods. But most of it is the result of my own struggle trying to create music that would contain all the moods and emotions I felt inside.
I used to listen to Marc Bolan a lot in my early youth, and I have always liked his voice. And I used to listen to Marillion also, mostly because I loved the way Fish was singing. Peter Hammill is for me one of the greatest, very expressive and dramatic, and sometimes very tender and emotional.
I have also listened to some female singers, and Tori Amos is one of my favourites, she sings with a lot of emotion. And Nordagust also told that "the next CD will be in the same landscape as our debut album, but perhaps to other seasons". Unfortunately Nordagust seemed to have turned into another promising one-shot-band.
Bio by TenYearsAfter June read more. Studio Album, 3. It's a chalk full of moody and brooding textures, eerie atmosphere, and haunting, gratuitous mellotron. Did I say that there's mellotron on this record? Nordagust essentially banks on the instrument throughout the entire record. With the title track, "In the Mist of Morning," the album starts of fantastically dark and drives melancholic, yet memorable, melodies through the mix while delivering on the tron, first class. It's a fairly short piece and could even be considered the prelude to "Elegy," however, the song stands beautifully on its own.

I'll certainly be interested to see however and hope album number two doesn't take as long to arrive. In my opinion, this is a fantastic debut that really moved me with its gorgeously black textures. The question, for me, then becomes, where does the band go from here? While the album is quite good, there's not a lot of variety or moments that show that the band has definite directions towards which they will evolve in the future.
Who knows though? Just producing a highly enjoyable debut album like In the Mist of Morning is an accomplishment, and Nordagust nailed it. I bet they have it in them to give us another walk through the woods with more savory mellotron goodness. I'll be eager and waiting. There are tracks that really stand-out, like the opener and title track "in the Mist of the Morning" which is eerily ethereal, hint of drakkars rowing gently in the arctic fog. The Hoggarth-like rant is plaintive and the guitar taciturn, draped in a blanket of sweeping choir mellotron strings, with distant bells peeling unceremoniously.
Plus the contrast coming from the tectonic mellotron and the piercing Solheim vocals. The oppressive effects-laden instrumental "In the Woods" serves as a perfect comprehensive intro for the epic "Elegy", a histrionic 9 minute lament that spares little sympathy and weaves a tortuous melancholia.
All good tracks. Middle-Eastern sounding insanity is found on the decidedly garrulous "Forcing", a harsh and somber sonic expanse that suggests relentless pressure and undeniable agony.
While we are at it, "Frozen" could easily have been the title track for this album, in view of the grey sub-zero cover art as a backdrop. Both are refrigerated icicles of snowy doom and gloom.
