    Biography

    The Norwegian sextet Kaizers Orchestra builds cathartic rock songs that borrow heavily from the dirges of Tin Pan Alley and Eastern European folk music. Formed on 1st of January 2000 in the city of Bergen, the band consists of Janove Ottesen and Geir Zahl on vocals/guitar/oil barrel, Helge Risa on pump organ, Øyvind Storesund on accordion and bass, guitarist/percussionist Terge Vinterstø Røthing, and Rune Solheim on the drums.

    They are notable for being among the first non-black metal Norwegian bands or artists singing in their native language to become popular beyond Scandinavia. To other Norwegians, the band is instantly recognizable both because of their unique, unpredictable style, and because of vocalist Ottesen's distinctive Jæren dialect, shared by two of the other band members.

    Their signature sound eventually led to a record deal with Scandinavian label Broiler Farm, and the band released Ompa Til du Dør in 2001, an album that won the Norwegian Grammy (called "Spellemannsprisen" in Norwegian) went on to become the highest-selling rock debut ever issued in the Norwegian language.
    Evig Pint followed in 2003, resulting in numerous awards and even more impressive record sales than its predecessor.

    In 2012, the band was awarded Årets Spellemann (Artist Of The Year). During their acceptance speech, the group announced that following a 2013 "Farewell Tour", they would take a long break. Their final concert was held on September 14, 2013 in Stavanger.

      Hvilket album skulle denne ha vært på?
      Tekst og vokal-messig høres det ut skulle vært på Maskineri. Men som sagt så vet jeg ikke.

      I was suprised that no one has added this album, but I did so no worries. *Updated lyrics coming soon*

      Too bad I didn't get the chance to see movie on the cinema, but still it was my own fault. But when I see it, I'm pretty sure that I'm gonna be a emotional wreck. I got emotional while seeing the trailer at least.

      Ja eg e heilt enige. "Kva"ana hørre ikkje heima i sangtekstane te et band fra Jæren (og ikkje fra andre delar av Rogaland heller). Kjempeirriterande når de skrive "kva" istedenfor "ke/ka" heile tiå. Eg love å endra på di så fort eg kan.
