Between gloom and riots:


PARADOGMATA release Seven Curses For The Deathly Pale from upcoming album Endetid!


Following their recently released and first video single The Seeds Of Greed, which mopped the floor with the perps of religious corruption, PARADOGMATA continue to reveal harsh realities about our society with their very own frantic take on thrash and death metal.

And so their video single Seven Curses For The Deathly Pale is born to lash out with a blend of bloodthirsty furiosity and groovy heavy metal riffs. Starting from a calm place and leading with a soft clean intro, the song soon progresses into savage spheres while maintaining its melodic choruses, topped off with frontman's Bøkseth’s bright vocals and a passionate guitar solo.

Bøkseth himself tells the tale of this outstanding and diverse track: “This was the song which marked a change in our songwriting, towards more brutal and aggressive soundscapes. To me, it's kinda resemblant to that Edge of Sanity-combo with heavy death metal riffing that's still melodic, you know?”

Endetid, the title of the album that is set for release on November 24th, is Norwegian for end time. Mankind is doing away with itself, no one intervenes against it and the future of the planet is uncertain. This is the album’s leitmotif, fueling a vast spectrum of stormy thrash sounds, thoughtful passages and traditional heavy metal riffs. The band is stylistically broadly positioned, strictly rejects blinkers and doesn't really like to 

classify itself. Nevertheless, on Endetid PARADOGMATA drew a path: "Metal for the schizophrenic, haha. We love those songs, though the new material is more firmly rooted in the borderlands between thrash, death & black, but still with our melodic approach."

PARADOGMATA take us on a dramatic journey of challenging songs that look behind the scenes of society. The band makes a clear statement: Indifference and too much power lead to downfall. "Does the world deserve having us as 'alphas'?" is the question, their album will leave us with.

Endetid was recorded at NordStern Studio with Kenneth "Ahzari" Jorgensen (Beyond Man, Saligia) and C. Broholt (Katechon, Hellstorm, Infant Death) in winter 2021/summer 2022 and mixed and mastered by P.V. Leth-Olsen at Granraude Studio.

It features guest vocals by Robert Lowe (Candlemass, Solitude Aeturnus, Tyrant, Grief Collector) and Chris Hathcock (The Reticent, Xael), with backing vocals by Magnus Helmersen (The Federation).
The album artwork and design came from Remedy Art Design, who have also worked for Evergrey, Oceans of Slumber, Kamelot, Blood Red Throne, Amaranthe, The Crown, Hexed, Seventh Wonder, Maladie & The Midgard Project. The album is available for pre-order here and straight from the band here.




PARADOGMATA was formed in 2018 in Trondheim, Norway. The band started off as a trio with two guitarists, Per and Wojchiech, and Svein on bass. After a while, Bo joined on drums. Wojciech left the band and in early 2021 Frank (ex-The Embraced) joined as vocalist. Since then PARADOGMATA has been gaining momentum. The current songs and the sound of the band evolved towards harder, more aggressive musical territories, reveiling a mixture of heavy metal, melodic death and US thrash with influences of speed and black metal in the mix. However, the emphasis is on melodic leads, groovy bass and the riffs. They were originally inspired by bands like Iron Maiden, Metallica, MSG, Motörhead and Megadeth. Nowadays the echoes of bands like Carcass, Edge of Sanity, Kreator, Sepultura, Death and At The Gates are audible. PARADOGMATA creates a musical landscape where listeners can escape and find something honest and real: music that stays in the muscle and the memory.
