Having made their UK debut last year in support of MOTORPYSCHO, the Norwegian hard-prog extravaganza that is EL DOOM & THE BORN ELECTRIC make their welcome return to these shores in support of fellow countrymen KVELERTAK.

 

El Doom himself comments:

 

"I'm really stoked to be part of the Kvelertak 'MEIR' European Tour 2013! The main reason for including El Doom & The Born Electric on this trek is surely that BJ (Kvelertak's main riff-maestro) owes me money, ha ha! I've been Kvelertak's sugar daddy from the start, they recorded their first demo at my studio, and BJ ended up working there. I have also provided them with most of their guitars through my cool-ass guitar-shop, so I'm guessing that they'll treat me like royalty on this, my vain attempt at getting laid, or 'tour' if you will."

 

Catch them at the following shows in March 2013;

El Doom (Ole Petter Andreassen) is a well respected Norwegian guitarplayer/singer/producer (4 Norwegian Grammy nominations, 2 wins), whose work in the past has been divided between his now defunct main projects The Cumshots and Thulsa Doom, while still finding time to produce/engineer some of Norways biggest bands, including Mayhem and Gluecifer.

 

Back in 2011, El Doom put together his new group, El Doom & The Born Electric. The self titled debut album was released on übercool Norwegian label Rune Grammofon (Motorpsycho), on the 7th of January 2012.
