NORTHWARD, is the hard rock project from well-renowned musicians Floor Jansen (Nightwish) and Jorn Viggo Lofstad (Pagan’s Mind), who will be releasing their debut self-titled album on October 19th, 2018 through Nuclear Blast.

The project sees a step away from both musicians normal style and approach and is a very diverse album. It was during the ‘All Star Jam’ at Progpower USA Festival in 2007, when current Nightwish singer Floor Jansen and Pagan’s Mind guitarist Jorn Viggo Lofstad first performed together on stage for some cover songs. Their mutual love for hard rock bought them together and they composed an album quickly after in 2008 but due to their other music commitments that album was put on hold until now, with the release being ten year’s later after it was first made. Floor seized the opportunity to get the project back on track in 2017 when Nightwish took a break and luckily it was time, so 2018 will finally see the release of their anticipated musical side project Northward.

INTERVIEW: AURA NOIR (Norway)


Interview by Carina Lawrence / Dark Art Conspiracy

Black metal thrash masters Aura Noir are finally unleashing their anticipated and long-awaited sixth new album titled ‘Aura Noire’ after a six-year gap and follow up to their last album ‘Out To Die’ (2012), and you can expect some of their finest and rawest material to date. I caught up Apollyon (Drums/Vocals) to discuss their origins, the new album and their upcoming tour…

Firstly can you tell us about your formation back in 1993?

Aura Noir started out as a solo project from Aggressor. The music was more avant guard-ish and doesn’t really have much in common with today’s Aura Noir.For his second demo recording, I helped him out with drums on one song and guitar on a second. After that, he ditched the whole project and we decided to continue playing together, still using the name Aura Noir but playing more thrashy music. This was in 1995 I guess, so we don’t really celebrate any 25 year anniversary until then.

How did you come up with your name?

Einar, who plays the drums in Virus and Infernö gave Aggressor the name back when he was playing more weird music.
