Ribozyme Short Info

It has been three years since the release of Ribozyme’s “Presenting the Problem”, the band’s first release on Indie Recordings; the release of an album, which according to Corey Mitchell of Metalsucks “grooves the fuck out without trying to be hipster cool”, led Ribozyme to do their biggest yet Norwegian tour in 2012. The band was also supporting “…And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead” on the European leg of their tour, spring of 2013, a tour that would become a massive inspiration for the writing of the new album.

While still unmistakably Ribozyme, the band's newest album "Grinding Tune" goes even further in exploring the harmonic hive of minds which belongs to Kjartan Ericsson and Bård Bøge, whilst still providing unfettered rhythmic work from Cato Olaisen. The vocal work is also strongly emphasized and adds new depths and subtleties to their trademark sound.

On “Grinding Tune” the band wanted to be more oriented towards the rehearsal room in the making of the album as opposed to the more studio-based approach they had on Presenting the Problem.
Bård comments: “As the songs [for “Grinding Tune”] was starting to develop, it became evident that the album needed a simpler production approach than their previous album. I feel we’ve gotten better at exploiting the power of simplicity in our album production, and the result is a warmer and more organic sounding album.”
