The album was recorded in our first rehearsal space in Drammen, as well as in the basement of the old drummer's house, using a lot of equipment that we had brought there ourselves. It was not a very structured process, and none of us had that much studio experience from before. It basically took a lot of time for us to make it sound the way we wanted it to, and we would often not start the actual recording until it was late at night. I remember that my math studies went to hell that semester...Kvass / Koldbrann interview, Ave Noctum, 2013
KOLDBRANN released their blistering debut Nekrotisk inkvisition on this day in 2003. Initially a limited self-released CD - timed for their appearance at the third Inferno festival in Oslo (17-19 April) - it was soon after released, again on CD, by Scottish label Desolate Landscapes.
Despite the somewhat poor studio conditions during the recording of "Nekrotisk Inkvisition", it was also a cool and exciting time. Jonas Aus Slavia (RIP) was an important part of the band at this point, and made several riff contributions to the record.
In hindsight the sound settings turned out to be quite extreme. I had no idea it would make such a long-lasting impression. If my memory serves me correctly, we took some inspiration from 1349's "Liberation" for that insane drum sound.Kvass / Koldbrann interview, Ave Noctum, 2013
