- New tour this autumn (check the Tourdates section)
“Since the release of his debut 'Gothic Electronic Anthems’ in 2003, Gothminister Bjørn Alexander Brem has captured the listeners with his hymns of pitch-black magic. Dark shudders, deep lead vocals and thrilling craft of composing within the marrow of Gothic, Industrial-Metal and Electro have become his trademarks ever since. Driving sequences lead into compelling verses which are soon countered by harsh metalriffs. Finally the listener gets subdued by an overwhelming combination of catchiness, denseness and heavenly choirs.” (Myk Jung)
With tracks like “Devil” (Gothic Electronic Anthems 2003), “Monsters” (Empire of Dark Salvation 2005), “Darkside” (Happiness In Darkness2008), “Liar” (Anima Inferna 2011) and “Utopia” (Utopia2013), the last single from the CD/DVD horror movie concept album which even reached the national finals of the Norwegian Eurovision contest, Gothminister has gotten a significant following of fans through the years.
The new album „The Other Side“, produced by Henning Verlage (Unheilig, Eisbrecher), exceedes even the highest expectations. Powerful metal riffs march relentlessly arm in arm with huge orchestras and heavenly choirs.
The Master himself reveals an astonishing range of vocal-art: from the deepest Gothic-dungeons up to the higher spheres of steaming Rock.
“The Other Side” is about spiritistic seanses, and supernatural experiences.
And again, Gothminister dives into the dark and the unknown, where the greatest inspiration lies from within the motto Happiness In Darkness, as he sings in the opening track.
“I have darkness on my mind, it is the sign of the times”
