Green Carnation

Kristiansand, Norway (1990 – on hold)

Green Carnation are from Kristiansand, Norway. They formed in 1990 as a death-metal act, but did not release their first album until 2000. This is because shortly after having formed as Green Carnation, main composer Tchort left the band to join Emperor. The rest of the band continued/restarted under a new name: In The Woods…. Tchort decided to restart the band after In the Woods… disbanded, including some old In the Woods… members back into the band.

Their style is most often described as progressive doom metal, with avant garde elements, though their more recent material has been tending away from the ‘doom’ side. This is perhaps best exemplified by their latest album, The Acoustic Verses, an all-acoustic album almost entirely devoid of the doom metal sound of their previous work. However, in the inlay to The Acoustic Verses, main man Tchort stated that the band is in the process of producing a Doom album much in the vein of the early work. This will be part two of a three part “doom trilogy” that includes Light Of Day, Day Of Darkness.

Lyrically they are themed towards life and death, God and the questioning of religion, love and betrayal.

Green Carnation is currently on hold due to financial and record label problems. Although Tchort will continue to write for the project, there will be no more live activity from the band since he disbanded the latest lineup.

    «Light of Day» прекрасна. Хоть и идет аж целый час, но каждая новая минута встречается с таким интересом...

    Of the Green Carnation Albums, and I like Doom metal, so do not take me wrong when I state that I love the Light Of Day,Day Of Darkness Album the absolute best! That one Track Album is a Musical Masterpiece that is a full Hour in length! It is the only Album I have by them but I have heard their other material as well but, Light Of Day, Day Of Darkness will always be my favorite! I have not heard any In The woods Albums yet but sooner or lat I will give them a shot since I know that they are a part of the history of Green Carnation. I never knew that till when I saw this Green Carnation profile.

    v Yes, I agree. I think it's even more possible to see a new 'In The Woods...' record than a new Green Carnation.

    Seeing it's been five years(?) now, I doubt The Rise and Fall of Mankind will ever come out.

    Not sure if I like Journey to the End of the Night yet. There's some great ideas and I can tell it was inspired, but the female vocals don't do anything for me, there's some gutiar brickwalling, the lyrics seem a bit melodramatic and among the good parts in the extremely long tracks, there is meandering. The song structures are interesting and I like the male vocals/bass only parts for dynamics, though, so time shall tell. Maybe I should have started with Light of Day, Day of Darkness...

    For those who liked their last two albums, you should check out Stein Roger Sordal's band "Angels Motel". There's even a remade version of the song "The Burden Is Mine... Alone".
