About this album

Maskineri is the fourth studio album by Kaizers Orchestra, released on 18 February 2008. The album received a largely positive critical response upon release, but views were somewhat divided compared to their earlier efforts. Regardless, it became an instant sales success, and on aggregate, spent more weeks on the Norwegian Top 40 album charts than the two earlier studio albums had done.

Not long after the release of the highly successful Maestro and the conclusion of its supporting tour in 2005, Janove Ottesen and Geir Zahl begun composing songs for Kaizers Orchestra’s next studio album. In an interview, they discussed the general theme of the album; in their own words, “people who die in a Kaizer fashion”. Additionally, they mentioned a then-unnamed song whose lyrics dealt with a dying sailor’s last wish.

As part of the Maestro Tour of 2006, Kaizers Orchestra held a concert on the venue Rockefeller in Oslo on March 27, 2006. The setlist for this performance was radically different from other shows that were part of the tour - in Kontroll på kontinentet, they cited their growing fatigue and sense of repetitiveness as the cause for this - in addition to many songs that had been dropped from the setlists years prior, they played a new song, “Du og dine er even”.
