The instrumental trio Addiktio deliver progressive, blistering sound, by mixing elements of rock, jazz, and metal, into a unique sonic experience.
The band is a result of two weeks improvisational play and musical duels in drummer Gallatin’s studio. Between them, Addiktio have decades of experience as skilled musicians.
But this is so much more than a one-dimensional, technical-mastermind band. Catchy parts and strong melodies inspired by the open Nordic landscape have shaped their sound into ambient and massive sonic landscapes, filled with mathematical and melodic parts.
A brutal, confronting guitar is backed by vintage bass and pure drum magic. It’s catchy instrumentals manage to capture any listener with its ‘in-your-face’ and chaotic expression.
