Biography

Seigmen was a Norwegian band in the 1990s, whose music varied from Progressive Metal/Rock to Alternative Rock and Goth Rock. The band’s name is derived from a Norwegian brand of man-shaped jelly candies (Seigmenn). Although hard to categorize, their music varies from album to album. Total was the album which caught Norway’s ears. Some of the songs such as Sort Tulipan were very gloomy and had a gothic-like atmosphere. Metropolis is their most well-known album to this date. Radiowaves is the album that shows a significant change on their style. The keyboardist/programmer Eric Ljungren (who later would join Kim, Alex and Noralf in Zeromancer) is more present and the songs are similar to New order and Depeche Mode. They’d split in 1999 after a farewell tour. Seigmen reunited during the UKA-festival in Trondheim, Norway on October 20, 2005, and decided in November 2005 to do even more reunion-gigs in Norway - 6 shows in February 2006 and played on several festivals in norway such as the Slottsfjell festival in Tønsberg.
