Three stages into the void
Danish rock orchestra LISERSTILLE is ready with their fifth release, which confronts the band’s traditions and systems and invites new ears to join in on a contrasting world of optimism and consequence.
On September 16th new music will be issued from Denmark’s quasi-royal kings of progressive rock and modern epic.
To counteract the fact that people spend less & less time on more & more, LISERSTILLE has faced the challenge, determined to compress the band’s bombastic dimensions into a less time consuming design. The mini album that shall carry the name ‘Flight of Belljár’ transgresses the compilation-design of the regular EP and becomes one piece intertwined.
Apocalyptic face-off in exploration and tradition
“Flight of Belljár covers three stages in three distinct stories. Initially we are thrust into few seconds before the total obliteration of The Earth, hence follows the story of what led us into the void and ultimately a hymn is sung from an empty Earth, where no human live, concluding the phase,” lead singer Martin Byrial explains, and continues:
“The depiction of these three stages has been essential in the intern debates in the band and it disembarks as a natural extension of our earlier works, while striving to describe the consequences of the Human race and its doings on the world.”
Concerning structure and musical arrangements LISERSTILLE has succeeded through Flight of Belljár, in diffusing the bands members away from their habitual roles. Instruments are exchanged, and the result shows that the huge tension and release, always stated as the bands greatest strengths, is furthermore emphasized though a natural insecurity walking unknown territory. Then, when the musicians finally intake their signature positions, the release is enhanced far more than ever. Experienced so much stronger.
Stimulus to new ears
As with the previous release NOUS (2012), Flight of Belljár has been produced and recorded in LISERSTILLE’s own studio by the band itself. This time with an even stronger focus on refining the recorded sound of every melody featured on the mini album, in order to give as much stimulus to the ears listening as possible.
“With ‘Flight of Belljár’ our goal is to break down every possible prejudices about our music as being complicated and for the few. We believe that a lot of new ears will understand the meaning if the sound actually reaches them. We will work as hard as possible for the human body to achieve this!” says guitarist Tue Schmidt Rasmussen.
Earlier this year LISERSTILLE signed a European booking deal with the agency Colossal. As a result of this the band will follow up the new release with a packed 10 days tour through Europe, before returning to Denmark for a few selected shows.
